5 *GLI-0.1_alpha (4 Apr 2005)
6
7 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
8 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
9 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
10 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
11 Logging system.
12 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
13 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
14
15 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
16 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
17 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
18 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
19 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
20 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
21
22 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
23 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
24 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
25
26 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
27 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
28 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
29 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
30 as follows:
31 <etc-portage>
32 <file name="package.mask"/>
33 <file name="package.unmask">
34 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
35 </file>
36 <file name="package.use">
37 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
38 -java
39 </entry>
40 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
41 -ldap
42 </entry>
43 </file>
44 </etc-portage>
45
46
47 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
48 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
49 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
50 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
51 keys in the same order.
52
53 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
54 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
55 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
56 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
57
58 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
59 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
60 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
61 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
62 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
63 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
64
65 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
66 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
67 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
68 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
69
70 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
71 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
72 in add_network_interface.
73
74 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
75 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
76 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
77 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
78 prepare_chroot.
79
80 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
81 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
82 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
83 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
84 use each frontend.
85
86 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
87 src/GLIClientController.py:
88 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
89 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
90
91 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
92 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
93 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
94 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
95
96 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
97 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
98 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
99 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
100 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
101 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
102 instead of the package atom.
103
104 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
105 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
106 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
107 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
108 __builtin__.file.
109
110 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
111 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
112 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
113 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
114 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
115 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
116
117 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
118 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
119
120 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
121 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
122 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
123 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
124 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
125 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
126 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
127
128 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

141 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
142 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
143
144 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
146 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
147

385
386 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
387 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
388 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.

390
391 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
392 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.

397
398 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
399 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to

401
402 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
403 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
404 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
405 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
406 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
407 the install profile if available.
408
409 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
410 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
411 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.

421 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
422 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
423 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
424 as it breaks the piping.
425
426 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
427 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
428

434 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
435 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
436 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
437 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
438
439 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
440 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
441 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
442 to start/end sectors
443
444 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
445 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
446
447 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
448 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
449 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
450 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
451 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
452 for the generated script from spawn()
453
454 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
455 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
456 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
457 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
458 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
459
460 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
461 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
462
463 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
464 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
465
466 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
467 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
468 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
469
470 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
471 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
472
473 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
474 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
475
476 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
477 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
478 lang parameter to __init__()
479
480 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
481 updates to TODO list.
482
483 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
484 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
485 'emerge -p blah'
486
487 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
488 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
489 added quickpkg to TODO list
490
491 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
492 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
493 so that the installer can continue.
494
495 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
496 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
497 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
498 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
499
500 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
501 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
502 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
503
504 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
505 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
506 of adding them.
507
508 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
509 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
510
511 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
512 updated TODO list. (again)
513
514 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
515 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
516 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
517 fixed custom kernel config (again)
518
519 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
520 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
521 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
522
523 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
524 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
525 the partitions :P
526
527 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
528 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
529 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
530 blank.
531
532 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
533 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
534 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
535
536 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
537 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
538 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
539 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
540 mounting code.
541
542 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
543 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
544 sets it randomly.
545
546 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
547 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
548
549 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
550 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
551
552 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
554 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
555
556 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
558 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
559
560 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
561 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
562 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
563 be safe before third pass.
564
565 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
566 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
567 will test when i get back to school.
568 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
569 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
570
571 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
572 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
573 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
574 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
575 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
576
577 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
578 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
579
580 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
581 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
582
583 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
584 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
585 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
586
587 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
588 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
589 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
590 some may still have eluded me.
591
592 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
593 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
594 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
595
596 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
597 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
598
599 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
600 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
601 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
602 from GLIInstallProfile.
603
604 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
605 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
606
607 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
608 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
609 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
610
611 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
613 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
614
615 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
616 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
617 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
618
619 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
621 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
622
623 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
624 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
625 can be resized.
626
627 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
628 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
629 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
630
631 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
632 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
633 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
634
635 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
636 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
637 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
638 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
639 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
640
641 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
642
643 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
644 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
645 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
646
647 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
648
649 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
650 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
651 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
652 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
653 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
654 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
655 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
656
657 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
658
659 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
660 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
661 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
662 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
663 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
664 Added initial unit test code.
665
666 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
667
668 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
669 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
670 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
