7 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
9
10 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
12 beginning internationalization runthrough.
13
14 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.
16 fix for unused value in form in dialog.py and changed heights.
17 fix GenDialog forms.
18
19 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
20 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
21 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
22 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
23 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
24 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
25
26 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
27 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
28 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
29
30 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
32 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
33
34 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
36 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
37 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
38
39 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
41 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
42 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
43 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
44
45 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
46 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.

53 get subarch.
54
55 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
56 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
57 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
58 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
59 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
60 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
61
62 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
63 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
64 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.
65 src/fe/cli/clife.py:
66 Logging system.

68 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
69
70 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
71 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
72 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
73 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
74 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
75 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.

78 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
79 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
80
81 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
82 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
83 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
84 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
85 as follows:
86 <etc-portage>
87 <file name="package.mask"/>
88 <file name="package.unmask">
89 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
90 </file>
91 <file name="package.use">
92 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
93 -java
94 </entry>
95 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
96 -ldap
97 </entry>
98 </file>
99 </etc-portage>
100
101
102 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
103 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
104 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
105 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
106 keys in the same order.
107
108 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
109 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
110 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
111 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
112
113 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
114 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
115 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
116 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
117 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
118 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
119
120 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
122 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
123 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
124
125 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
126 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
127 in add_network_interface.
128
129 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
130 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
131 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
132 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
133 prepare_chroot.
134
135 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
136 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

142 src/GLIClientController.py:
143 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
144 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
145
146 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
148 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
149 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
150
151 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
152 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
153 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
154 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
155 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
156 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
157 instead of the package atom.
158
159 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
160 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
161 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
162 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
163 __builtin__.file.
164
165 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
166 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
167 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

169 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
170 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
171

173 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
174
175 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
176 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
177 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
178 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
179 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
180 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
181 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].

436 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
437 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
438 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
439 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
440
441 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
442 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
443 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
444 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
445
446 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
447 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
448
449 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
450 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
451 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
452
453 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
454 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
455 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
456
457 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
458 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
459 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
460 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
461 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
462 the install profile if available.
463
464 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
465 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
466 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
467
468 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
469 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
470
471 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
472 took chroot out of grub_install command.
473
474 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
475 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
476 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
477 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
478 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
479 as it breaks the piping.
480
481 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
482 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
483
484 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
485 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
486 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
487 GLIInstallProfile.
488
489 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
490 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
491 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
492 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
493
494 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
495 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
496 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
497 to start/end sectors
498
499 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
500 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
501
502 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
503 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
504 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
505 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
506 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
507 for the generated script from spawn()
508
509 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
510 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
511 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
512 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
513 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
514
515 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
516 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
517
518 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
519 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
520
521 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
522 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
523 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
524
525 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
526 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
527
528 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
529 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
530
531 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
532 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
533 lang parameter to __init__()
534
535 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
536 updates to TODO list.
537
538 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
539 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
540 'emerge -p blah'
541
542 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
543 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
544 added quickpkg to TODO list
545
546 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
547 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
548 so that the installer can continue.
549
550 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
551 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
552 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
553 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
554
555 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
556 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
557 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
558
559 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
560 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
561 of adding them.
562
563 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
564 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
565
566 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
567 updated TODO list. (again)
568
569 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
571 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
572 fixed custom kernel config (again)
573
574 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
575 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
576 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
577
578 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
579 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
580 the partitions :P
581
582 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
583 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
584 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
585 blank.
586
587 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
588 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
589 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
590
591 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
592 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
593 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
594 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
595 mounting code.
596
597 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
598 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
599 sets it randomly.
600
601 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
602 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
603
604 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
605 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
606
607 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
608 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
609 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
610
611 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
613 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
614
615 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
616 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
617 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
618 be safe before third pass.
619
620 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
621 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
622 will test when i get back to school.
623 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
624 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
625
626 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
627 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
628 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
629 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
630 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
631
632 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
633 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
634
635 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
636 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
637
638 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
639 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
640 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
641
642 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
643 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
644 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
645 some may still have eluded me.
646
647 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
648 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
649 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
650
651 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
652 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
653
654 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
656 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
657 from GLIInstallProfile.
658
659 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
661
662 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
663 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
664 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
665
666 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
668 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
669
670 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
671 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
672 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
673
674 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
676 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
677
678 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
680 can be resized.
681
682 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
683 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
684 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
685
686 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
687 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
688 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
689
690 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
691 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
692 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
693 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
694 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
695
696 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
697
698 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
699 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
700 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
701
702 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
703
704 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
705 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
706 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
707 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
708 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
709 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
710 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
711
712 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
713
714 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
715 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
716 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
717 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
718 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
719 Added initial unit test code.
720
721 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
722
723 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
724 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
725 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
