101
102 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

149
150 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
152 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

154
155 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

172 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
173 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
174 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
175 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
176 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
177
178 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

197 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
198 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
199 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
200 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
201 as follows:
202 <etc-portage>
203 <file name="package.mask"/>
204 <file name="package.unmask">
205 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
206 </file>
207 <file name="package.use">
208 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
209 -java
210 </entry>
211 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
212 -ldap
213 </entry>
214 </file>
215 </etc-portage>
216

224 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
225 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
226 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
227 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
228
229 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
230 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
231 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
232 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
233 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
234 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
235
236 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
237 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
238 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
239 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
240
241 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
242 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
243 in add_network_interface.
244
245 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
246 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
247 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
248 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
249 prepare_chroot.
250
251 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

263 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
264 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
265 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
266
267 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
268 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
269 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
270 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
271 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
272 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
273 instead of the package atom.
274
275 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
276 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
277 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

282 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
283 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

289 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
290
291 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
292 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
293 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

306
307 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
309 be executable.
310
311 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
312 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
313 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
314
315 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
317 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
318

488 code.
489
490 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
491 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
492 adding the new value to the end of the file.
493
494 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
495 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

499 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
500 pythondoc.
501
502 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
503 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
504 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
505 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
506 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
507
508 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
509 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
510 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
511 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
512
513 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

524 sed to properly strip out junk.
525
526 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
527 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

536 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
537 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
538 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
539 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
540 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
541 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
542
543 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
544 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
545 when unpacking tarball.
546
547 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
548 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
549 filesystem_tools code.
550
551 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
552 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
553 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
554 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
555 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
556
557 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
558 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
559 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
560 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
561
562 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
563 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
564
565 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
566 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
567 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
568
569 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
571 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
572
573 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
574 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
575 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
576 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
577 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
578 the install profile if available.
579
580 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
581 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
582 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
583
584 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
585 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
586
587 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
588 took chroot out of grub_install command.
589
590 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
592 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
593 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
594 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
595 as it breaks the piping.
596
597 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
598 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
599
600 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
601 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
602 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
603 GLIInstallProfile.
604
605 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
607 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
608 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
609
610 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
611 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
612 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
613 to start/end sectors
614
615 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
616 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
617
618 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
619 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
620 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
621 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
622 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
623 for the generated script from spawn()
624
625 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
626 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
627 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
628 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
629 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
630
631 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
632 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
633
634 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
635 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
636
637 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
638 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
639 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
640
641 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
642 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
643
644 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
645 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
646
647 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
648 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
649 lang parameter to __init__()
650
651 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
652 updates to TODO list.
653
654 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
656 'emerge -p blah'
657
658 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
659 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
660 added quickpkg to TODO list
661
662 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
663 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
664 so that the installer can continue.
665
666 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
667 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
668 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
669 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
670
671 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
673 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
674
675 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
676 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
677 of adding them.
678
679 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
680 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
681
682 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
683 updated TODO list. (again)
684
685 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
687 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
688 fixed custom kernel config (again)
689
690 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
691 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
692 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
693
694 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
695 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
696 the partitions :P
697
698 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
699 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
700 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
701 blank.
702
703 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
704 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
705 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
706
707 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
708 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
709 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
710 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
711 mounting code.
712
713 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
714 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
715 sets it randomly.
716
717 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
718 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
719
720 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
721 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
722
723 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
724 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
725 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
726
727 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
729 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
730
731 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
732 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
733 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
734 be safe before third pass.
735
736 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
737 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
738 will test when i get back to school.
739 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
740 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
741
742 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
743 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
744 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
745 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
746 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
747
748 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
749 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
750
751 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
752 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
753
754 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
755 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
756 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
757
758 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
759 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
760 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
761 some may still have eluded me.
762
763 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
764 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
765 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
766
767 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
768 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
769
770 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
771 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
772 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
773 from GLIInstallProfile.
774
775 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
776 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
777
778 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
779 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
780 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
781
782 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
783 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
784 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
785
786 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
787 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
788 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
789
790 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
791 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
792 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
793
794 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
795 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
796 can be resized.
797
798 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
799 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
800 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
801
802 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
803 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
804 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
805
806 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
807 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
808 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
809 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
810 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
811
812 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
813
814 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
815 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
816 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
817
818 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
819
820 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
821 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
822 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
823 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
824 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
825 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
826 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
827
828 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
829
830 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
831 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
832 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
833 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
834 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
835 Added initial unit test code.
836
837 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
838
839 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
840 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
841 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
