7 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
9 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess()
10
11 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
13
14 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
15 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
16
17 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
18 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
19 get subarch.
20
21 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
23 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
24 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
25 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
26 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
27
28 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
31 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
32 Logging system.
33 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
34 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
35
36 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
37 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
38 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
39 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
40 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
41 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
42
43 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
45 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
46
47 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
48 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
49 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
50 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
51 as follows:
52 <etc-portage>
53 <file name="package.mask"/>
54 <file name="package.unmask">
55 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
56 </file>
57 <file name="package.use">
58 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
59 -java
60 </entry>
61 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
62 -ldap
63 </entry>
64 </file>
65 </etc-portage>
66
67
68 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
69 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
70 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
71 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
72 keys in the same order.
73
74 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
75 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
76 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
77 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
78
79 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
80 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
81 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
82 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
83 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
84 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
85
86 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
88 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
89 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
90
91 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
92 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
93 in add_network_interface.
94
95 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
96 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
97 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
98 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
99 prepare_chroot.
100
101 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
102 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
103 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
104 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
105 use each frontend.
106
107 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
108 src/GLIClientController.py:
109 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
110 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
111
112 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
113 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
114 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
115 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
116
117 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
118 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
119 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
120 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
121 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
122 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
123 instead of the package atom.
124
125 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
126 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
127 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
128 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
129 __builtin__.file.
130
131 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
132 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
133 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
134 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
135 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
136 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
137
138 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
139 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
140
141 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
142 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
143 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
144 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
145 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
146 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
147 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
148

159 be executable.
160
161 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
162 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
163 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
164
165 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
167 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
168

428 the install profile if available.
429
430 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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