10 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
11 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
12 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
13 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
14 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
15 their install profiles!
16
17 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
18 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
19 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as
20 commented prototype of checking that mounting actually worked (found a case
21 where mount can return success, but the mount won't be done).
22
23 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
24 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
25 Remove TEMP UGLY HACK of time.sleep(5), and replace it with a while loop

27
28 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
29 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
30 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
31 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
32 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
33 themselves.
34
35 7 Jul 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

56 Remove separate install step configure_rc_conf() since it's handled by
57 update_config_files()
58 Make a copy of newvalues in _edit_config() so quotes aren't added when the
59 function is called twice on the same file.
60
61 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
62 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
63 Removed explicit emerging of hotplug and no longer add it to the runlevel.

79 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
80 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
81
82 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

84
85 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

100
101 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
103 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
104
105 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

107 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
108
109 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
111 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
112 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
113
114 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
115 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

128 get subarch.
129
130 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
132 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
133 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
134 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
135 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
136
137 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

147 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
148 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
149 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
150 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
151
152 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
154 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
155
156 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
158 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
159 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
160 as follows:
161 <etc-portage>
162 <file name="package.mask"/>
163 <file name="package.unmask">
164 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
165 </file>
166 <file name="package.use">
167 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
168 -java
169 </entry>
170 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
171 -ldap
172 </entry>
173 </file>
174 </etc-portage>
175

178 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
179 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
180 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
181 keys in the same order.
182
183 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
184 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
185 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
186 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
187
188 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
190 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
191 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
192 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
193 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
194
195 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
197 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
198 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
199
200 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
201 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
202 in add_network_interface.
203
204 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
205 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
206 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
207 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
208 prepare_chroot.
209
210 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

219 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
220
221 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
222 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
223 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
224 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
225
226 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
227 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
228 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
229 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
230 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
231 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
232 instead of the package atom.
233
234 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
235 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
236 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
237 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
238 __builtin__.file.
239
240 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
241 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
242 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
243 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
244 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

248 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
249
250 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
251 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
252 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
253 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
254 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
255 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
256 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
257
258 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

265
266 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
267 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
268 be executable.
269
270 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
271 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
272 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
273
274 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
276 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
277

443 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
444
445 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

447 code.
448
449 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
450 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
451 adding the new value to the end of the file.
452
453 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
454 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

456
457 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
458 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
459 pythondoc.
460
461 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
462 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
463 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
464 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
465 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
466
467 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
468 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
469 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
470 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
471
472 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
473 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
474
475 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
476 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
477
478 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
479 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
480
481 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
482 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
483 sed to properly strip out junk.
484
485 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
486 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
487 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
488
489 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
490 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
491
492 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
493 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
494
495 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
496 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
497 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
498 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
499 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
500 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
501
502 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
503 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
504 when unpacking tarball.
505
506 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
507 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
508 filesystem_tools code.
509
510 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
511 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
512 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
513 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
514 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
515
516 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
517 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
518 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
519 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
520
521 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
522 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
523
524 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
525 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
526 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
527
528 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
529 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
530 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
531
532 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
533 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
534 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
535 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
536 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
537 the install profile if available.
538
539 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
540 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
541 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
542
543 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
544 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
545
546 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
547 took chroot out of grub_install command.
548
549 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
550 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
551 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
552 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
553 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
554 as it breaks the piping.
555
556 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
557 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
558
559 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
560 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
561 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
562 GLIInstallProfile.
563
564 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
565 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
566 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
567 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
568
569 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
570 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
571 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
572 to start/end sectors
573
574 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
575 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
576
577 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
578 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
579 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
580 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
581 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
582 for the generated script from spawn()
583
584 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
585 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
586 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
587 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
588 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
589
590 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
591 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
592
593 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
594 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
595
596 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
597 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
598 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
599
600 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
601 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
602
603 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
604 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
605
606 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
607 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
608 lang parameter to __init__()
609
610 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
611 updates to TODO list.
612
613 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
614 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
615 'emerge -p blah'
616
617 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
618 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
619 added quickpkg to TODO list
620
621 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
622 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
623 so that the installer can continue.
624
625 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
626 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
627 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
628 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
629
630 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
631 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
632 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
633
634 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
635 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
636 of adding them.
637
638 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
639 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
640
641 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
642 updated TODO list. (again)
643
644 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
645 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
646 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
647 fixed custom kernel config (again)
648
649 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
650 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
651 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
652
653 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
654 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
655 the partitions :P
656
657 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
658 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
659 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
660 blank.
661
662 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
663 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
664 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
665
666 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
668 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
669 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
670 mounting code.
671
672 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
673 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
674 sets it randomly.
675
676 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
677 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
678
679 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
680 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
681
682 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
683 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
684 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
685
686 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
687 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
688 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
689
690 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
691 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
692 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
693 be safe before third pass.
694
695 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
696 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
697 will test when i get back to school.
698 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
699 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
700
701 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
702 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
703 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
704 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
705 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
706
707 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
708 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
709
710 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
711 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
712
713 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
714 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
715 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
716
717 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
718 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
719 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
720 some may still have eluded me.
721
722 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
723 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
724 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
725
726 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
727 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
728
729 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
730 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
731 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
732 from GLIInstallProfile.
733
734 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
735 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
736
737 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
738 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
739 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
740
741 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
742 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
743 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
744
745 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
746 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
747 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
748
749 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
750 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
751 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
752
753 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
754 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
755 can be resized.
756
757 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
758 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
759 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
760
761 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
762 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
763 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
764
765 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
766 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
767 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
768 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
769 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
770
771 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
772
773 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
774 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
775 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
776
777 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
778
779 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
780 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
781 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
782 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
783 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
784 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
785 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
786
787 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
788
789 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
790 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
791 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
792 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
793 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
794 Added initial unit test code.
795
796 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
797
798 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
799 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
800 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
