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

31 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
32 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
33 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
34 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
35 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
36 themselves.
37

62 function is called twice on the same file.
63
64 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()
66 Removed explicit emerging of hotplug and no longer add it to the runlevel.

78
79 28 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
80 finished almost all internationalization of GenDialog.
81 attempt at fixing rc.conf function. moved 3 generate functions out of
82 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
83 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
84
85 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
86 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
87
88 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
89 fix extra entry in list_mirrors()
90 beginning internationalization runthrough.
91
92 26 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
93 added dialog.py to /src temporarily until it gets accepted upstream.

102 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
103
104 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
106 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
107
108 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

110 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
111
112 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
114 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
115 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
116
117 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

131 get subarch.
132
133 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
135 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
136 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
137 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
138 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
139
140 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

150 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
151 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
152 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
153 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
154
155 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
156 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
157 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
158
159 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
160 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
161 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
162 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
163 as follows:
164 <etc-portage>
165 <file name="package.mask"/>
166 <file name="package.unmask">
167 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
168 </file>
169 <file name="package.use">
170 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
171 -java
172 </entry>
173 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
174 -ldap
175 </entry>
176 </file>
177 </etc-portage>
178

181 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
182 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
183 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
184 keys in the same order.
185
186 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
187 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
188 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
189 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
190
191 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
192 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
193 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
194 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
195 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
196 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
197
198 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
200 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
201 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
202
203 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
204 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
205 in add_network_interface.
206
207 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
208 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
209 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
210 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
211 prepare_chroot.
212
213 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

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

251 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
252
253 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
254 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
255 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
256 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
257 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
258 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
259 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
260
261 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

268
269 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
271 be executable.
272
273 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
274 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
275 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
276
277 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
278 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
279 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
280

446 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
447
448 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
449 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
450 code.
451
452 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
453 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
454 adding the new value to the end of the file.
455
456 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
457 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

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