22 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
23 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
24 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
25 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
26 their install profiles!
27

70 function is called twice on the same file.
71
72 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

90 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
91 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
92
93 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
95
96 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

112 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
113 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
114 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
115
116 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

118 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
119
120 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
122 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
123 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
124
125 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
126 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

139 get subarch.
140
141 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
142 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
143 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
144 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
145 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
146 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
147
148 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

158 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
159 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
160 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
161 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.

167 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
168 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
169 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
170 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
171 as follows:
172 <etc-portage>
173 <file name="package.mask"/>
174 <file name="package.unmask">
175 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
176 </file>
177 <file name="package.use">
178 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
179 -java
180 </entry>
181 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
182 -ldap
183 </entry>
184 </file>
185 </etc-portage>
186

188 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
189 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
190 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
191 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
192 keys in the same order.
193
194 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
196 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
197 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
198
199 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
200 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
201 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
202 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
203 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
204 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
205
206 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
208 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
209 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
210
211 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
212 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
213 in add_network_interface.
214
215 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
216 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
217 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
218 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
219 prepare_chroot.
220
221 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

230 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
231
232 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
233 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
234 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
235 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
236
237 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
238 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
239 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
240 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
241 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
242 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
243 instead of the package atom.
244
245 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
246 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
247 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

252 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
253 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
254 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
255 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

259 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
260
261 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
262 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
263 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
264 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
265 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
266 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
267 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
268
269 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
270 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

276
277 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

279 be executable.
280
281 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
282 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
283 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
284
285 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
286 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
287 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
288

436 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
437 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in
438 _get_packages_to_emerge(). Fix _quickpkg_deps() to call
439 _get_packages_to_emerge()
440
441 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

458 code.
459
460 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
461 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
462 adding the new value to the end of the file.
463
464 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
465 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

467
468 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
469 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
470 pythondoc.
471
472 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
473 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
474 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
475 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
476 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
477
478 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
479 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
480 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
481 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
482
483 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
484 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
485
486 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
487 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
488
489 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
490 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
491
492 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

494 sed to properly strip out junk.
495
496 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
497 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
498 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
499
500 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
501 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
502
503 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

505
506 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
507 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
508 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
509 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
510 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
511 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
512
513 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
515 when unpacking tarball.
516
517 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
518 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
519 filesystem_tools code.
520
521 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
522 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
523 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
524 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
525 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
526
527 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
528 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
529 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
530 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
531
532 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
533 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
534
535 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
536 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
537 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
538
539 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
540 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
541 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
542
543 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
544 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
545 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
546 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
547 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
548 the install profile if available.
549
550 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
551 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
552 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
553
554 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
555 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
556
557 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
558 took chroot out of grub_install command.
559
560 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
561 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
562 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
563 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
564 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
565 as it breaks the piping.
566
567 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
568 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
569
570 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
572 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
573 GLIInstallProfile.
574
575 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
576 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
577 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
578 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
579
580 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
581 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
582 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
583 to start/end sectors
584
585 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
587
588 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
589 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
590 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
591 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
592 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
593 for the generated script from spawn()
594
595 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
596 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
597 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
598 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
599 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
600
601 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
602 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
603
604 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
605 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
606
607 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
608 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
609 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
610
611 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
613
614 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
615 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
616
617 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
618 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
619 lang parameter to __init__()
620
621 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
622 updates to TODO list.
623
624 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
625 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
626 'emerge -p blah'
627
628 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
629 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
630 added quickpkg to TODO list
631
632 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
633 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
634 so that the installer can continue.
635
636 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
637 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
638 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
639 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
640
641 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
642 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
643 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
644
645 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
647 of adding them.
648
649 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
650 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
651
652 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
653 updated TODO list. (again)
654
655 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
656 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
657 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
658 fixed custom kernel config (again)
659
660 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
661 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
662 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
663
664 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
665 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
666 the partitions :P
667
668 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
669 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
670 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
671 blank.
672
673 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
674 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
675 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
676
677 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
678 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
679 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
680 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
681 mounting code.
682
683 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
684 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
685 sets it randomly.
686
687 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
688 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
689
690 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
691 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
692
693 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
694 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
695 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
696
697 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
699 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
700
701 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
702 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
703 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
704 be safe before third pass.
705
706 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
707 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
708 will test when i get back to school.
709 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
710 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
711
712 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
714 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
715 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
716 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
717
718 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
719 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
720
721 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
722 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
723
724 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
725 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
726 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
727
728 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
730 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
731 some may still have eluded me.
732
733 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
734 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
735 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
736
737 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
738 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
739
740 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
741 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
742 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
743 from GLIInstallProfile.
744
745 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
746 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
747
748 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
749 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
750 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
751
752 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
753 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
754 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
755
756 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
757 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
758 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
759
760 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
761 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
762 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
763
764 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
765 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
766 can be resized.
767
768 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
769 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
770 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
771
772 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
773 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
774 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
775
776 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
777 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
778 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
779 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
780 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
781
782 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
783
784 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
785 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
786 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
787
788 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
789
790 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
791 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
792 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
793 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
794 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
795 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
796 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
797
798 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
799
800 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
801 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
802 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
803 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
804 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
805 Added initial unit test code.
806
807 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
808
809 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
810 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
811 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
