7 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
9 beginning internationalization runthrough.
10
11 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
13 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
14 fix GenDialog forms.
15
16 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
18 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
19 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
20 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
21 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
22
23 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
24 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
25 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
26
27 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
29 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
30
31 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
32 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
33 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
34 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
35
36 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
38 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
39 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
40 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
41
42 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
43 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.

50 get subarch.
51
52 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
54 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
55 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
56 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
57 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
58
59 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
60 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

69 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
70 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
71 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
72 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.

76 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
77
78 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
79 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
80 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
81 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
82 as follows:
83 <etc-portage>
84 <file name="package.mask"/>
85 <file name="package.unmask">
86 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
87 </file>
88 <file name="package.use">
89 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
90 -java
91 </entry>
92 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
93 -ldap
94 </entry>
95 </file>
96 </etc-portage>

100 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
101 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
102 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
103 keys in the same order.
104
105 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
106 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
107 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
108 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
109
110 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
111 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
112 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
113 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
114 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
115 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
116
117 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
119 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
120 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
121
122 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
123 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
124 in add_network_interface.
125
126 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
127 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
128 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
129 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
130 prepare_chroot.
131
132 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

141 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
142
143 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
144 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
145 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
146 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
147
148 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
149 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
150 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
151 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
152 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
153 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
154 instead of the package atom.
155
156 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
158 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
159 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
160 __builtin__.file.

162 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
163 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
164 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

193 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
194 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
195
196 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

437
438 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
439 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
440 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
441 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
442
443 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
444 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
445
446 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
447 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
448 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
449
450 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
451 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
452 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
453
454 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
455 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
456 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
457 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
458 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
459 the install profile if available.
460
461 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
462 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
463 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
464
465 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
466 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
467
468 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
469 took chroot out of grub_install command.
470
471 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
472 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
473 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
474 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
475 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
476 as it breaks the piping.
477
478 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
479 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
480
481 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
482 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
483 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
484 GLIInstallProfile.
485
486 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
487 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
488 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
489 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
490
491 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
492 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
493 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
494 to start/end sectors
495
496 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
497 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
498
499 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
500 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
501 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
502 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
503 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
504 for the generated script from spawn()
505
506 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
507 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
508 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
509 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
510 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
511
512 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
513 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
514
515 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
516 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
517
518 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
519 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
520 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
521
522 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
523 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
524
525 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
527
528 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
529 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
530 lang parameter to __init__()
531
532 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
533 updates to TODO list.
534
535 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
536 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
537 'emerge -p blah'
538
539 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
540 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
541 added quickpkg to TODO list
542
543 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
544 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
545 so that the installer can continue.
546
547 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
548 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
549 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
550 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
551
552 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
553 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
554 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
555
556 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
557 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
558 of adding them.
559
560 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
561 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
562
563 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
564 updated TODO list. (again)
565
566 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
567 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
568 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
569 fixed custom kernel config (again)
570
571 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
572 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
573 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
574
575 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
576 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
577 the partitions :P
578
579 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
580 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
581 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
582 blank.
583
584 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
585 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
586 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
587
588 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
589 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
590 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
591 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
592 mounting code.
593
594 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
595 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
596 sets it randomly.
597
598 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
599 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
600
601 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
602 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
603
604 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
605 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
606 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
607
608 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
609 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
610 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
611
612 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
613 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
614 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
615 be safe before third pass.
616
617 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
618 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
619 will test when i get back to school.
620 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
621 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
622
623 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
624 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
625 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
626 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
627 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
628
629 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
630 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
631
632 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
633 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
634
635 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
636 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
637 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
638
639 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
640 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
641 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
642 some may still have eluded me.
643
644 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
645 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
646 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
647
648 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
649 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
650
651 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
652 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
653 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
654 from GLIInstallProfile.
655
656 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
657 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
658
659 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
661 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
662
663 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
664 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
665 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
666
667 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
668 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
669 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
670
671 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
673 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
674
675 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
676 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
677 can be resized.
678
679 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
680 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
681 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
682
683 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
684 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
685 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
686
687 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
688 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
689 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
690 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
691 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
692
693 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
694
695 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
696 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
697 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
698
699 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
700
701 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
702 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
703 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
704 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
705 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
706 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
707 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
708
709 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
710
711 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
712 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
713 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
714 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
715 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
716 Added initial unit test code.
717
718 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
719
720 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
721 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
722 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
