6
7 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
9
10 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
11 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
12
13 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
14 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
15 get subarch.
16
17 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
19 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
20 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
21 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
22 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
23
24 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
25 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
26 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
27 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
28 Logging system.
29 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
30 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
31
32 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
33 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
34 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
35 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
36 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
37 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
38
39 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
40 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
41 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
42
43 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
44 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
45 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
46 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
47 as follows:
48 <etc-portage>
49 <file name="package.mask"/>
50 <file name="package.unmask">
51 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
52 </file>
53 <file name="package.use">
54 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
55 -java
56 </entry>
57 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
58 -ldap
59 </entry>
60 </file>
61 </etc-portage>
62
63
64 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
65 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
66 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
67 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
68 keys in the same order.
69
70 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
72 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
73 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
74
75 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
76 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
77 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
78 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
79 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
80 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
81
82 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
84 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
85 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
86
87 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
88 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
89 in add_network_interface.
90
91 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
92 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
93 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
94 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
95 prepare_chroot.
96
97 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
98 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

103 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
104 src/GLIClientController.py:
105 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
106 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
107
108 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
110 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
111 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
112
113 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
116 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
117 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
118 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
119 instead of the package atom.
120
121 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
122 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
123 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
124 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
125 __builtin__.file.
126
127 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
128 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
129 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

141 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
142 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
143 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].

156
157 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
158 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
159 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
160
161 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
163 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.

435
436 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
437 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
438 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
439 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
440 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
441 as it breaks the piping.
442
443 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
444 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
445
446 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
447 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
448 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
449 GLIInstallProfile.
450
451 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
452 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
453 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
454 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
455
456 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
457 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
458 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
459 to start/end sectors
460
461 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
462 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
463
464 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
465 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
466 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
467 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
468 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
469 for the generated script from spawn()
470
471 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
472 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
473 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
474 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
475 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
476
477 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
478 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
479
480 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
481 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
482
483 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
484 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
485 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
486
487 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
488 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
489
490 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
491 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
492
493 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
494 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
495 lang parameter to __init__()
496
497 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
498 updates to TODO list.
499
500 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
501 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
502 'emerge -p blah'
503
504 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
505 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
506 added quickpkg to TODO list
507
508 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
509 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
510 so that the installer can continue.
511
512 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
513 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
514 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
515 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
516
517 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
518 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
519 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
520
521 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
522 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
523 of adding them.
524
525 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
526 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
527
528 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
529 updated TODO list. (again)
530
531 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
532 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
533 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
534 fixed custom kernel config (again)
535
536 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
537 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
538 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
539
540 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
541 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
542 the partitions :P
543
544 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
545 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
546 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
547 blank.
548
549 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
550 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
551 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
552
553 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
554 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
555 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
556 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
557 mounting code.
558
559 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
560 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
561 sets it randomly.
562
563 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
564 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
565
566 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
567 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
568
569 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
571 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
572
573 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
574 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
575 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
576
577 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
578 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
579 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
580 be safe before third pass.
581
582 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
583 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
584 will test when i get back to school.
585 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
586 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
587
588 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
589 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
590 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
591 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
592 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
593
594 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
595 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
596
597 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
598 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
599
600 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
601 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
602 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
603
604 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
605 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
606 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
607 some may still have eluded me.
608
609 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
610 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
611 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
612
613 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
614 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
615
616 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
617 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
618 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
619 from GLIInstallProfile.
620
621 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
622 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
623
624 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
625 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
626 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
627
628 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
629 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
630 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
631
632 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
633 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
634 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
635
636 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
637 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
638 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
639
640 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
641 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
642 can be resized.
643
644 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
645 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
646 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
647
648 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
649 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
650 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
651
652 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
653 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
654 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
655 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
656 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
657
658 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
659
660 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
661 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
662 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
663
664 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
665
666 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
667 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
668 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
669 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
670 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
671 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
672 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
673
674 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
675
676 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
677 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
678 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
679 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
680 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
681 Added initial unit test code.
682
683 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
684
685 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
686 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
687 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
