138 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
139 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
140
141 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

143 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
144
145 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
147 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

149
150 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

164 get subarch.
165
166 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
168 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
169 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
170 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
171 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
172
173 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

191
192 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
193 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
194 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
195 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
196 as follows:
197 <etc-portage>
198 <file name="package.mask"/>
199 <file name="package.unmask">
200 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
201 </file>
202 <file name="package.use">
203 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
204 -java
205 </entry>
206 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
207 -ldap
208 </entry>
209 </file>
210 </etc-portage>
211
212
213 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
214 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
215 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
216 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
217 keys in the same order.
218
219 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
220 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
221 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
222 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
223
224 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
225 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
226 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
227 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
228 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
229 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
230
231 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
233 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
234 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
235
236 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
237 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
238 in add_network_interface.
239
240 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
241 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
242 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
243 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
244 prepare_chroot.
245
246 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

255 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
256
257 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
258 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
259 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
260 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
261
262 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
263 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
264 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
265 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
266 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
267 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
268 instead of the package atom.
269
270 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
271 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
272 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
273 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
274 __builtin__.file.
275
276 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
277 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
278 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
279 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
280 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

283 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
284 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
285
286 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
287 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
288 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

290 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
291 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
292 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
293
294 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

301
302 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
303 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
304 be executable.
305
306 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
307 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
308 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
309
310 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
311 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
312 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
313

483 code.
484
485 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
486 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
487 adding the new value to the end of the file.
488

496
497 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
498 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
499 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
500 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
501 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
502
503 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
504 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
505 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
506 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
507
508 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
509 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

531 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
532 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
533 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
534 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
535 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
536 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
537
538 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
539 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
540 when unpacking tarball.
541
542 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
543 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
544 filesystem_tools code.
545
546 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
547 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
548 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
549 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
550 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
551
552 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
554 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
555 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
556
557 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
558 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
559
560 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
561 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
562 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
563
564 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
565 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
566 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
567
568 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
569 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
570 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
571 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
572 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
573 the install profile if available.
574
575 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
576 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
577 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
578
579 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
580 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
581
582 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
583 took chroot out of grub_install command.
584
585 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
587 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
588 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
589 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
590 as it breaks the piping.
591
592 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
593 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
594
595 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
596 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
597 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
598 GLIInstallProfile.
599
600 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
601 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
602 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
603 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
604
605 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
607 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
608 to start/end sectors
609
610 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
611 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
612
613 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
614 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
615 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
616 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
617 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
618 for the generated script from spawn()
619
620 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
621 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
622 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
623 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
624 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
625
626 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
627 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
628
629 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
630 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
631
632 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
633 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
634 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
635
636 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
637 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
638
639 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
640 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
641
642 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
643 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
644 lang parameter to __init__()
645
646 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
647 updates to TODO list.
648
649 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
650 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
651 'emerge -p blah'
652
653 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
654 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
655 added quickpkg to TODO list
656
657 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
658 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
659 so that the installer can continue.
660
661 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
662 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
663 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
664 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
665
666 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
668 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
669
670 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
671 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
672 of adding them.
673
674 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
676
677 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
678 updated TODO list. (again)
679
680 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
681 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
682 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
683 fixed custom kernel config (again)
684
685 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
687 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
688
689 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
690 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
691 the partitions :P
692
693 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
694 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
695 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
696 blank.
697
698 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
699 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
700 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
701
702 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
703 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
704 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
705 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
706 mounting code.
707
708 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
709 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
710 sets it randomly.
711
712 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
714
715 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
716 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
717
718 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
719 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
720 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
721
722 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
724 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
725
726 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
727 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
728 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
729 be safe before third pass.
730
731 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
732 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
733 will test when i get back to school.
734 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
735 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
736
737 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
738 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
739 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
740 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
741 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
742
743 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
744 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
745
746 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
747 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
748
749 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
750 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
751 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
752
753 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
754 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
755 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
756 some may still have eluded me.
757
758 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
759 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
760 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
761
762 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
763 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
764
765 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
766 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
767 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
768 from GLIInstallProfile.
769
770 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
771 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
772
773 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
774 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
775 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
776
777 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
778 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
779 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
780
781 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
782 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
783 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
784
785 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
786 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
787 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
788
789 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
790 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
791 can be resized.
792
793 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
794 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
795 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
796
797 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
798 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
799 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
800
801 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
802 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
803 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
804 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
805 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
806
807 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
808
809 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
810 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
811 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
812
813 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
814
815 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
816 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
817 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
818 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
819 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
820 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
821 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
822
823 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
824
825 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
826 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
827 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
828 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
829 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
830 Added initial unit test code.
831
832 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
833
834 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
835 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
836 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
