8 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes).
9
10 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
12
13 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
15
16 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
18 get subarch.
19
20 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
21 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
22 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
23 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
24 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
25 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
26
27 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
28 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
29 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
30 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
31 Logging system.
32 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
33 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
34
35 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
36 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
37 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
38 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
39 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
40 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
41
42 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
44 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
45
46 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
47 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
48 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
49 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
50 as follows:
51 <etc-portage>
52 <file name="package.mask"/>
53 <file name="package.unmask">
54 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
55 </file>
56 <file name="package.use">
57 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
58 -java
59 </entry>
60 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
61 -ldap
62 </entry>
63 </file>
64 </etc-portage>
65
66
67 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
68 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
69 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
70 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
71 keys in the same order.
72
73 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
74 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
75 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
76 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
77
78 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
79 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
80 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
81 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
82 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
83 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
84
85 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
87 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
88 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
89
90 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
91 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
92 in add_network_interface.
93
94 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
95 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
96 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
97 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
98 prepare_chroot.
99
100 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
101 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
102 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
103 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
104 use each frontend.
105
106 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
107 src/GLIClientController.py:
108 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
109 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
110
111 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
112 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
113 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
114 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
115
116 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
119 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
120 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
121 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
122 instead of the package atom.
123
124 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
125 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
126 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
127 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
128 __builtin__.file.
129
130 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
131 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
132 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
133 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
134 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
135 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
136
137 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
138 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
139
140 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
141 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
142 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
143 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
144 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
145 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
146 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
147

158 be executable.
159
160 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
161 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
162 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
163
164 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
166 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
167

427 the install profile if available.
428
429 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

433 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
434 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
435
436 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
437 took chroot out of grub_install command.
438
439 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
440 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
441 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
442 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
443 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
444 as it breaks the piping.
445
446 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
447 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
448
449 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
450 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
451 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
452 GLIInstallProfile.
453
454 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
455 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
456 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
457 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
458
459 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
460 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
461 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
462 to start/end sectors
463
464 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
465 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
466
467 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
468 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
469 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
470 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
471 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
472 for the generated script from spawn()
473
474 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
475 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
476 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
477 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
478 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
479
480 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
481 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
482
483 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
484 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
485
486 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
487 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
488 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
489
490 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
491 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
492
493 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
494 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
495
496 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
497 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
498 lang parameter to __init__()
499
500 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
501 updates to TODO list.
502
503 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
504 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
505 'emerge -p blah'
506
507 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
508 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
509 added quickpkg to TODO list
510
511 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
512 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
513 so that the installer can continue.
514
515 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
516 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
517 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
518 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
519
520 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
521 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
522 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
523
524 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
525 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
526 of adding them.
527
528 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
529 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
530
531 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
532 updated TODO list. (again)
533
534 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
535 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
536 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
537 fixed custom kernel config (again)
538
539 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
540 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
541 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
542
543 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
544 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
545 the partitions :P
546
547 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
548 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
549 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
550 blank.
551
552 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
554 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
555
556 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
558 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
559 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
560 mounting code.
561
562 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
563 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
564 sets it randomly.
565
566 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
567 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
568
569 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
571
572 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
573 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
574 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
575
576 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
577 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
578 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
579
580 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
581 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
582 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
583 be safe before third pass.
584
585 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
586 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
587 will test when i get back to school.
588 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
589 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
590
591 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
592 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
593 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
594 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
595 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
596
597 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
598 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
599
600 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
601 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
602
603 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
604 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
605 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
606
607 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
608 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
609 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
610 some may still have eluded me.
611
612 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
613 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
614 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
615
616 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
617 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
618
619 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
621 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
622 from GLIInstallProfile.
623
624 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
625 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
626
627 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
628 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
629 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
630
631 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
632 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
633 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
634
635 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
636 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
637 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
638
639 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
640 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
641 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
642
643 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
644 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
645 can be resized.
646
647 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
648 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
649 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
650
651 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
652 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
653 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
654
655 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
656 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
657 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
658 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
659 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
660
661 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
662
663 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
664 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
665 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
666
667 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
668
669 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
670 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
671 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
672 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
673 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
674 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
675 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
676
677 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
678
679 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
680 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
681 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
682 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
683 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
684 Added initial unit test code.
685
686 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
687
688 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
689 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
690 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
