6
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(). Fix
10 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None.
11
12 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
13 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
14
15 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16 Modify list_mirrors() to return a list of mirror URL/name pairs.
17
18 19 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
19 Adding gli-dialog.py. Updates to GenDialog. Added function to GLIUtility to
20 get subarch.
21
22 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
24 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
25 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
26 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
27 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
28
29 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
30 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
31 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
32 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
33 Logging system.
34 src/GLIUtility.py, src/GLIStorageDevice.py:
35 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
36
37 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
38 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
39 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
40 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
41 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
42 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
43
44 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
46 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
47
48 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
49 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
50 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
51 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
52 as follows:
53 <etc-portage>
54 <file name="package.mask"/>
55 <file name="package.unmask">
56 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
57 </file>
58 <file name="package.use">
59 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
60 -java
61 </entry>
62 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
63 -ldap
64 </entry>
65 </file>
66 </etc-portage>
67
68
69 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
70 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
71 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
72 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
73 keys in the same order.
74
75 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
76 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
77 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
78 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
79
80 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
81 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
82 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
83 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
84 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
85 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
86
87 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
88 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
89 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
90 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
91
92 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
93 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
94 in add_network_interface.
95
96 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
97 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
98 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
99 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
100 prepare_chroot.
101
102 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
103 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,
104 +src/fe/installer-gtk:
105 Add new automated CLI frontend. Add scripts that are the intended means to
106 use each frontend.
107
108 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIClientController.py:
110 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
111 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
112
113 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
116 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
117
118 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
119 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
120 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
121 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
122 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
123 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
124 instead of the package atom.
125
126 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
127 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
128 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
129 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
130 __builtin__.file.
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
133 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
134 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
135 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
136 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
137 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
138
139 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
140 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
141
142 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
143 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
144 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
145 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
146 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
147 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
148 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].

161
162 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
163 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
164 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
165
166 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
168 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
169

429 the install profile if available.
430
431 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

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