32 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
33 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
34 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
35 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
36 their install profiles!

80 function is called twice on the same file.
81
82 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

129
130 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
132 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

134
135 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

149 get subarch.
150
151 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
153 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
154 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
155 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
156 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
157
158 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

168 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
169 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
170 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
171 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
172
173 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
174 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

176
177 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
178 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
179 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
180 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
181 as follows:
182 <etc-portage>
183 <file name="package.mask"/>
184 <file name="package.unmask">
185 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
186 </file>
187 <file name="package.use">
188 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
189 -java
190 </entry>
191 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
192 -ldap
193 </entry>
194 </file>
195 </etc-portage>
196
197
198 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
200 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
201 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
202 keys in the same order.

204 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
205 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
206 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
207 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
208
209 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
210 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
211 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
212 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
213 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
214 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
215
216 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
217 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
218 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

220
221 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
222 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
223 in add_network_interface.
224
225 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
226 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
227 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
228 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
229 prepare_chroot.
230
231 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

243 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
244 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
245 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
246
247 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
248 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
249 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
250 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
251 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
252 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
253 instead of the package atom.
254
255 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
256 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
257 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
258 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
259 __builtin__.file.

262 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
263 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

269 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
270
271 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
272 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
273 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

275 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
276 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
277 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
278

286
287 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
289 be executable.
290
291 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
292 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
293 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
294
295 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
296 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
297 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
298

468 code.
469
470 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
471 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
472 adding the new value to the end of the file.
473
474 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
475 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

479 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
480 pythondoc.
481
482 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
483 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
484 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
485 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
486 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
487
488 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
489 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
490 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
491 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
492
493 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
494 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

500 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
501
502 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

504 sed to properly strip out junk.
505
506 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
507 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

516 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
517 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
518 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
519 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
520 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
521 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
522
523 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
524 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
525 when unpacking tarball.
526
527 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
528 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
529 filesystem_tools code.
530
531 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
532 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
533 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
534 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
535 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
536
537 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
538 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
539 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
540 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
541
542 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
543 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
544
545 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
546 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
547 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
548
549 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
550 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
551 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
552
553 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
554 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
555 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
556 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
557 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
558 the install profile if available.
559
560 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
561 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
562 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
563
564 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
565 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
566
567 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
568 took chroot out of grub_install command.
569
570 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
572 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
573 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
574 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
575 as it breaks the piping.
576
577 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
578 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
579
580 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
581 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
582 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
583 GLIInstallProfile.
584
585 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
587 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
588 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
589
590 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
592 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
593 to start/end sectors
594
595 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
596 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
597
598 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
599 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
600 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
601 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
602 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
603 for the generated script from spawn()
604
605 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
606 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
607 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
608 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
609 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
610
611 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
612 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
613
614 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
615 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
616
617 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
618 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
619 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
620
621 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
622 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
623
624 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
625 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
626
627 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
628 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
629 lang parameter to __init__()
630
631 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
632 updates to TODO list.
633
634 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
635 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
636 'emerge -p blah'
637
638 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
639 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
640 added quickpkg to TODO list
641
642 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
643 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
644 so that the installer can continue.
645
646 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
647 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
648 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
649 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
650
651 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
652 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
653 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
654
655 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
656 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
657 of adding them.
658
659 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
661
662 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
663 updated TODO list. (again)
664
665 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
666 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
667 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
668 fixed custom kernel config (again)
669
670 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
671 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
672 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
673
674 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
676 the partitions :P
677
678 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
680 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
681 blank.
682
683 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
684 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
685 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
686
687 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
688 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
689 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
690 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
691 mounting code.
692
693 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
694 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
695 sets it randomly.
696
697 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
699
700 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
701 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
702
703 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
704 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
705 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
706
707 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
708 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
709 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
710
711 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
712 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
713 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
714 be safe before third pass.
715
716 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
717 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
718 will test when i get back to school.
719 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
720 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
721
722 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
724 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
725 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
726 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
727
728 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
729 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
730
731 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
732 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
733
734 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
735 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
736 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
737
738 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
739 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
740 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
741 some may still have eluded me.
742
743 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
744 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
745 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
746
747 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
748 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
749
750 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
752 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
753 from GLIInstallProfile.
754
755 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
756 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
757
758 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
759 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
760 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
761
762 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
763 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
764 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
765
766 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
767 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
768 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
769
770 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
771 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
772 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
773
774 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
775 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
776 can be resized.
777
778 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
779 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
780 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
781
782 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
783 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
784 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
785
786 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
787 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
788 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
789 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
790 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
791
792 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
793
794 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
795 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
796 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
797
798 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
799
800 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
801 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
802 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
803 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
804 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
805 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
806 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
807
808 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
809
810 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
811 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
812 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
813 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
814 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
815 Added initial unit test code.
816
817 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
818
819 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
820 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
821 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
