7 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
9 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
10 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
11 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319).
12
13 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
14 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
15 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
16 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
17 Logging system.
18 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
19 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
20
21 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
22 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
23 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
24 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
25 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
26 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
27
28 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
30 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
31
32 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
34 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
35 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
36 as follows:
37 <etc-portage>
38 <file name="package.mask"/>
39 <file name="package.unmask">
40 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
41 </file>
42 <file name="package.use">
43 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
44 -java
45 </entry>
46 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
47 -ldap
48 </entry>
49 </file>
50 </etc-portage>
51
52
53 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
54 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
55 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
56 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
57 keys in the same order.
58
59 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
60 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
61 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
62 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
63
64 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
66 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
67 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
68 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
69 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
70
71 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
73 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
74 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
75
76 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
77 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
78 in add_network_interface.
79
80 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
81 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
82 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
83 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
84 prepare_chroot.
85
86 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
87 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
88 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
89 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
90 use each frontend.
91
92 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
93 src/GLIClientController.py:
94 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
95 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
96
97 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
98 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
99 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
100 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
101
102 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
103 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
104 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
105 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
106 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
107 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
108 instead of the package atom.
109
110 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
111 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
112 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
113 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
114 __builtin__.file.
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
119 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
120 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
121 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
122
123 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
124 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
125
126 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
127 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,

129 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
130 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
131 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
132 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].

391
392 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
393 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
394 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
395 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
396
397 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
398 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
399
400 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
401 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
402 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
403
404 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
405 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
406 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
407
408 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
409 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
410 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
411 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
412 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
413 the install profile if available.
414
415 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
416 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
417 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
418
419 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
420 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
421
422 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
423 took chroot out of grub_install command.
424
425 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
426 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
427 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
428 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
429 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
430 as it breaks the piping.
431
432 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
433 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
434
435 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
436 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
437 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
438 GLIInstallProfile.
439
440 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
441 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
442 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
443 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
444
445 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
446 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
447 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
448 to start/end sectors
449
450 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
451 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
452
453 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
454 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
455 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
456 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
457 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
458 for the generated script from spawn()
459
460 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
461 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
462 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
463 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
464 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
465
466 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
467 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
468
469 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
470 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
471
472 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
473 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
474 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
475
476 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
477 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
478
479 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
480 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
481
482 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
483 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
484 lang parameter to __init__()
485
486 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
487 updates to TODO list.
488
489 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
490 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
491 'emerge -p blah'
492
493 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
494 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
495 added quickpkg to TODO list
496
497 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
498 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
499 so that the installer can continue.
500
501 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
502 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
503 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
504 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
505
506 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
507 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
508 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
509
510 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
511 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
512 of adding them.
513
514 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
515 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
516
517 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
518 updated TODO list. (again)
519
520 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
521 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
522 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
523 fixed custom kernel config (again)
524
525 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
527 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
528
529 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
530 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
531 the partitions :P
532
533 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
534 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
535 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
536 blank.
537
538 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
539 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
540 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
541
542 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
543 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
544 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
545 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
546 mounting code.
547
548 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
549 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
550 sets it randomly.
551
552 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
553 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
554
555 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
556 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
557
558 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
559 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
560 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
561
562 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
563 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
564 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
565
566 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
567 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
568 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
569 be safe before third pass.
570
571 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
572 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
573 will test when i get back to school.
574 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
575 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
576
577 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
578 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
579 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
580 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
581 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
582
583 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
584 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
585
586 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
587 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
588
589 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
590 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
591 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
592
593 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
594 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
595 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
596 some may still have eluded me.
597
598 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
599 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
600 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
601
602 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
603 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
604
605 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
607 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
608 from GLIInstallProfile.
609
610 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
611 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
612
613 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
614 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
615 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
616
617 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
618 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
619 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
620
621 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
622 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
623 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
624
625 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
626 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
627 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
628
629 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
630 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
631 can be resized.
632
633 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
634 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
635 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
636
637 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
638 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
639 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
640
641 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
642 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
643 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
644 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
645 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
646
647 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
648
649 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
650 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
651 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
652
653 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
654
655 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
656 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
657 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
658 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
659 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
660 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
661 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
662
663 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
664
665 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
666 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
667 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
668 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
669 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
670 Added initial unit test code.
671
672 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
673
674 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
675 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
676 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
