197
198 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
199 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

215 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
216 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
217 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
218 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
219 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
220
221 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

240 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
241 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
242 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
243 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
244 as follows:
245 <etc-portage>
246 <file name="package.mask"/>
247 <file name="package.unmask">
248 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
249 </file>
250 <file name="package.use">
251 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
252 -java
253 </entry>

267 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
268 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
269 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
270 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
271
272 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
273 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
274 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
275 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
276 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
277 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
278
279 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
280 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
281 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
282 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
283
284 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
285 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
286 in add_network_interface.
287
288 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
289 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
290 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
291 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
292 prepare_chroot.
293
294 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

303 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
304
305 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
306 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
307 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
308 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
309
310 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
311 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
312 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
313 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
314 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
315 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
316 instead of the package atom.
317
318 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
319 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
320 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

338 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
339 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
340 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
341

348 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
349
350 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
351 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
352 be executable.
353
354 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
355 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
356 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
357
358 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
359 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
360 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
361

441 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
442 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in
443 partitioning. CC serializes install profile to disk and prepare_chroot()
444 copies it into /mnt/gentoo/root
445
446 16 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

468 instead of --nocolor.
469
470 10 May 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
471 Added GLIGenDialog.py to make a generic class for the dialog functions that

495 code to CC to handle exceptions *not* thrown by the installer itself.
496
497 1 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
498 get_max_mb_for_resize() returns -1 if not self.resizeable
499
500 30 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
501 More dirty rsync hacks :-/
502
503 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

531 code.
532
533 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

542 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
543 pythondoc.
544
545 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
546 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
547 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
548 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
549 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
550
551 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
552 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
553 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
554 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
555
556 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

579 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
580 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
581 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
582 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
583 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
584 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
585
586 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
587 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
588 when unpacking tarball.
589
590 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
591 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
592 filesystem_tools code.
593
594 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
595 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
596 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
597 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
598 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
599
600 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
601 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
602 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
603 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
604
605 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
607
608 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
609 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
610 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
611
612 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
613 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
614 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
615
616 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
617 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
618 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
619 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
620 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
621 the install profile if available.
622
623 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
624 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
625 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
626
627 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
628 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
629
630 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
631 took chroot out of grub_install command.
632
633 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
634 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
635 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
636 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
637 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
638 as it breaks the piping.
639
640 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
641 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
642
643 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
644 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
645 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
646 GLIInstallProfile.
647
648 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
649 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
650 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
651 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
652
653 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
654 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
655 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
656 to start/end sectors
657
658 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
659 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
660
661 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
662 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
663 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
664 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
665 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
666 for the generated script from spawn()
667
668 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
669 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
670 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
671 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
672 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
673
674 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
675 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
676
677 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
678 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
679
680 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
681 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
682 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
683
684 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
685 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
686
687 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
689
690 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
691 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
692 lang parameter to __init__()
693
694 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
695 updates to TODO list.
696
697 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
699 'emerge -p blah'
700
701 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
702 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
703 added quickpkg to TODO list
704
705 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
706 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
707 so that the installer can continue.
708
709 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
710 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
711 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
712 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
713
714 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
715 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
716 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
717
718 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
719 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
720 of adding them.
721
722 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
724
725 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
726 updated TODO list. (again)
727
728 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
730 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
731 fixed custom kernel config (again)
732
733 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
734 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
735 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
736
737 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
738 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
739 the partitions :P
740
741 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
742 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
743 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
744 blank.
745
746 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
747 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
748 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
749
750 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
752 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
753 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
754 mounting code.
755
756 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
757 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
758 sets it randomly.
759
760 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
761 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
762
763 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
764 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
765
766 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
767 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
768 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
769
770 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
771 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
772 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
773
774 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
775 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
776 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
777 be safe before third pass.
778
779 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
780 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
781 will test when i get back to school.
782 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
783 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
784
785 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
786 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
787 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
788 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
789 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
790
791 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
792 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
793
794 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
795 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
796
797 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
798 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
799 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
800
801 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
802 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
803 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
804 some may still have eluded me.
805
806 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
807 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
808 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
809
810 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
811 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
812
813 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
814 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
815 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
816 from GLIInstallProfile.
817
818 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
819 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
820
821 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
822 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
823 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
824
825 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
826 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
827 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
828
829 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
830 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
831 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
832
833 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
834 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
835 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
836
837 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
838 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
839 can be resized.
840
841 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
842 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
843 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
844
845 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
846 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
847 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
848
849 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
850 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
851 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
852 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
853 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
854
855 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
856
857 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
858 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
859 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
860
861 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
862
863 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
864 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
865 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
866 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
867 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
868 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
869 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
870
871 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
872
873 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
