41 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
42 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
43 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
44 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
45 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.

73
74 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
76 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

78
79 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

93 get subarch.
94
95 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
96 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
97 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
98 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
99 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
100 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
101
102 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

112 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
113 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
114 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
115 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
116
117 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

120
121 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
122 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
123 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
124 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
125 as follows:
126 <etc-portage>
127 <file name="package.mask"/>
128 <file name="package.unmask">
129 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
130 </file>
131 <file name="package.use">
132 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
133 -java
134 </entry>
135 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
136 -ldap
137 </entry>
138 </file>
139 </etc-portage>
140

142 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
143 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
144 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
145 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
146 keys in the same order.
147
148 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
149 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
150 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
151 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
152
153 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
154 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
155 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
156 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
157 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
158 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
159
160 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
162 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
163 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
164
165 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
166 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
167 in add_network_interface.
168
169 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
170 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
171 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
172 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
173 prepare_chroot.
174
175 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

184 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
185
186 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
187 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
188 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
189 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
190
191 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
192 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
193 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
194 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
195 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
196 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
197 instead of the package atom.
198
199 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
200 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
201 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

206 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
207 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

219 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
220 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
221 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
222

230
231 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

233 be executable.
234
235 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
236 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
237 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
238
239 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
240 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
241 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
242

437 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
438 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
439
440 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
441 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
442
443 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
444 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
445
446 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
447 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
448 sed to properly strip out junk.
449
450 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
451 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
452 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
453
454 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
455 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
456
457 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
458 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
459
460 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
461 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
462 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
463 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
464 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
465 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
466
467 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
468 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
469 when unpacking tarball.
470
471 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
472 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
473 filesystem_tools code.
474
475 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
476 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
477 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
478 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
479 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
480
481 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
482 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
483 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
484 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
485
486 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
487 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
488
489 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
490 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
491 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
492
493 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
494 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
495 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
496
497 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
498 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
499 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
500 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
501 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
502 the install profile if available.
503
504 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
505 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
506 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
507
508 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
509 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
510
511 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
512 took chroot out of grub_install command.
513
514 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
515 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
516 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
517 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
518 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
519 as it breaks the piping.
520
521 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
522 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
523
524 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
525 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
526 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
527 GLIInstallProfile.
528
529 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
530 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
531 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
532 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
533
534 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
535 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
536 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
537 to start/end sectors
538
539 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
540 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
541
542 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
543 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
544 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
545 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
546 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
547 for the generated script from spawn()
548
549 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
550 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
551 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
552 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
553 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
554
555 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
556 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
557
558 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
559 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
560
561 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
562 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
563 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
564
565 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
566 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
567
568 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
569 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
570
571 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
572 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
573 lang parameter to __init__()
574
575 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
576 updates to TODO list.
577
578 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
579 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
580 'emerge -p blah'
581
582 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
583 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
584 added quickpkg to TODO list
585
586 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
587 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
588 so that the installer can continue.
589
590 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
591 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
592 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
593 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
594
595 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
596 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
597 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
598
599 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
600 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
601 of adding them.
602
603 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
604 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
605
606 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
607 updated TODO list. (again)
608
609 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
610 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
611 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
612 fixed custom kernel config (again)
613
614 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
615 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
616 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
617
618 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
619 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
620 the partitions :P
621
622 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
623 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
624 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
625 blank.
626
627 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
628 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
629 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
630
631 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
632 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
633 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
634 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
635 mounting code.
636
637 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
638 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
639 sets it randomly.
640
641 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
642 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
643
644 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
645 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
646
647 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
648 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
649 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
650
651 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
652 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
653 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
654
655 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
656 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
657 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
658 be safe before third pass.
659
660 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
661 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
662 will test when i get back to school.
663 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
664 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
665
666 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
668 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
669 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
670 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
671
672 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
673 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
674
675 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
676 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
677
678 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
679 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
680 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
681
682 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
683 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
684 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
685 some may still have eluded me.
686
687 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
689 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
690
691 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
692 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
693
694 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
695 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
696 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
697 from GLIInstallProfile.
698
699 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
701
702 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
703 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
704 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
705
706 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
707 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
708 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
709
710 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
711 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
712 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
713
714 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
715 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
716 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
717
718 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
719 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
720 can be resized.
721
722 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
723 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
724 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
725
726 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
727 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
728 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
729
730 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
731 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
732 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
733 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
734 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
735
736 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
737
738 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
739 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
740 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
741
742 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
743
744 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
745 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
746 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
747 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
748 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
749 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
750 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
751
752 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
753
754 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
755 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
756 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
757 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
758 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
759 Added initial unit test code.
760
761 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
762
763 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
764 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
765 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
