8 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
9 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as
10 commented prototype of checking that mounting actually worked (found a case
11 where mount can return success, but the mount won't be done).

67 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
68 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
69 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
70 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
71
72 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
74
75 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

90
91 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
92 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
93 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
94
95 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

97 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
98
99 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
100 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
101 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
102 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
103
104 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
105 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

118 get subarch.
119
120 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
122 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
123 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
124 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
125 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
126
127 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

137 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
138 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
139 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
140 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
141
142 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
144 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
145
146 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
147 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
148 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
149 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
150 as follows:
151 <etc-portage>
152 <file name="package.mask"/>
153 <file name="package.unmask">
154 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
155 </file>
156 <file name="package.use">
157 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
158 -java
159 </entry>
160 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
161 -ldap
162 </entry>
163 </file>
164 </etc-portage>
165

168 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
169 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
170 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
171 keys in the same order.
172
173 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
174 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
175 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
176 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
177
178 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
179 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
180 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
181 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
182 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
183 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
184
185 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
186 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
187 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
188 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
189
190 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
191 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
192 in add_network_interface.
193
194 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
195 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
196 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
197 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
198 prepare_chroot.
199
200 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

209 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
210
211 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
212 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
213 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
214 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
215
216 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
217 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
218 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
219 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
220 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
221 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
222 instead of the package atom.
223
224 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
225 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
226 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
227 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
228 __builtin__.file.
229
230 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
231 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
232 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
233 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
234 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

238 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
239
240 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
241 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
242 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
243 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
244 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
245 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
246 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
247
248 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
249 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

255
256 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
257 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
258 be executable.
259
260 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
261 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
262 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
263
264 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
265 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
266 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
267

435 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
436 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
437 code.
438
439 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
440 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
441 adding the new value to the end of the file.
442
443 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
444 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
445 Also updated TODO list.
446
447 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
448 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
449 pythondoc.
450
451 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
452 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
453 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
454 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
455 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
456
457 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
458 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
459 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
460 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
461
462 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
463 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
464
465 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
466 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
467
468 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
469 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
470
471 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
472 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
473 sed to properly strip out junk.
474
475 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
477 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
478
479 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
480 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
481
482 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
483 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
484
485 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
486 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
487 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
488 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
489 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
490 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
491
492 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
493 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
494 when unpacking tarball.
495
496 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
497 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
498 filesystem_tools code.
499
500 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
501 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
502 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
503 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
504 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
505
506 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
507 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
508 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
509 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
510
511 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
512 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
513
514 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
515 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
516 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
517
518 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
519 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
520 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
521
522 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
523 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
524 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
525 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
526 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
527 the install profile if available.
528
529 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
530 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
531 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
532
533 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
534 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
535
536 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
537 took chroot out of grub_install command.
538
539 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
540 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
541 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
542 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
543 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
544 as it breaks the piping.
545
546 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
547 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
548
549 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
550 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
551 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
552 GLIInstallProfile.
553
554 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
555 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
556 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
557 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
558
559 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
560 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
561 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
562 to start/end sectors
563
564 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
565 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
566
567 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
568 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
569 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
570 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
571 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
572 for the generated script from spawn()
573
574 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
575 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
576 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
577 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
578 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
579
580 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
581 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
582
583 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
584 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
585
586 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
587 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
588 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
589
590 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
592
593 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
594 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
595
596 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
597 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
598 lang parameter to __init__()
599
600 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
601 updates to TODO list.
602
603 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
604 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
605 'emerge -p blah'
606
607 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
608 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
609 added quickpkg to TODO list
610
611 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
612 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
613 so that the installer can continue.
614
615 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
616 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
617 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
618 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
619
620 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
621 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
622 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
623
624 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
625 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
626 of adding them.
627
628 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
629 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
630
631 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
632 updated TODO list. (again)
633
634 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
635 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
636 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
637 fixed custom kernel config (again)
638
639 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
640 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
641 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
642
643 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
644 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
645 the partitions :P
646
647 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
648 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
649 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
650 blank.
651
652 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
653 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
654 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
655
656 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
657 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
658 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
659 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
660 mounting code.
661
662 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
663 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
664 sets it randomly.
665
666 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
668
669 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
670 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
671
672 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
673 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
674 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
675
676 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
677 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
678 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
679
680 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
681 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
682 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
683 be safe before third pass.
684
685 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
687 will test when i get back to school.
688 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
689 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
690
691 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
692 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
693 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
694 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
695 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
696
697 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
699
700 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
701 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
702
703 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
704 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
705 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
706
707 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
708 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
709 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
710 some may still have eluded me.
711
712 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
713 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
714 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
715
716 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
717 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
718
719 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
720 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
721 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
722 from GLIInstallProfile.
723
724 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
725 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
726
727 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
729 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
730
731 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
732 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
733 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
734
735 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
736 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
737 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
738
739 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
740 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
741 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
742
743 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
744 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
745 can be resized.
746
747 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
748 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
749 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
750
751 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
752 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
753 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
754
755 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
756 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
757 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
758 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
759 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
760
761 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
762
763 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
764 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
765 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
766
767 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
768
769 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
770 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
771 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
772 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
773 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
774 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
775 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
776
777 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
778
779 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
780 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
781 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
782 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
783 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
784 Added initial unit test code.
785
786 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
787
788 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
789 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
790 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
