199
200 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

217 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
218 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
219 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
220 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
221 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
222
223 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

241
242 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
243 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
244 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
245 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
246 as follows:
247 <etc-portage>
248 <file name="package.mask"/>
249 <file name="package.unmask">
250 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
251 </file>
252 <file name="package.use">
253 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
254 -java
255 </entry>
256 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
257 -ldap
258 </entry>
259 </file>
260 </etc-portage>
261

264 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
265 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
266 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
267 keys in the same order.
268
269 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
270 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
271 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
272 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
273
274 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
275 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
276 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
277 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
278 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
279 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
280
281 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
283 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
284 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
285
286 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
287 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
288 in add_network_interface.
289
290 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
291 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
292 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
293 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
294 prepare_chroot.
295
296 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

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

326 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
327 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
328 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

334 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
335
336 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
337 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
338 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

340 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
341 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
342 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
343
344 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

350 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
351
352 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
353 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
354 be executable.
355
356 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
357 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
358 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
359
360 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
361 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
362 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
363

442
443 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
444 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in
445 partitioning. CC serializes install profile to disk and prepare_chroot()
446 copies it into /mnt/gentoo/root
447
448 16 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
449 Moved URI parsing into new function parse_uri()

467 Added --nocolor to all emerge calls. Fix is_eth_device to test for zero
468 return value instead of non-zero. Add code to output a traceback to the
469 install log in the event of a GLI or non-GLI exception. Use NOCOLOR=yes

471
472 10 May 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
473 Added GLIGenDialog.py to make a generic class for the dialog functions that

494
495 2 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
496 Exceptions received in CC are logged before being passed to the FE. Added
497 code to CC to handle exceptions *not* thrown by the installer itself.
498
499 1 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
500 get_max_mb_for_resize() returns -1 if not self.resizeable
501
502 30 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
503 More dirty rsync hacks :-/
504
505 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

514 _get_packages_to_emerge()
515
516 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
517 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate

533 code.
534
535 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
536 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
537 adding the new value to the end of the file.
538
539 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
540 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

544 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
545 pythondoc.
546
547 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
548 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
549 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
550 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
551 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
552
553 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
554 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
555 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
556 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
557
558 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
559 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
560
561 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
562 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
563

565 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
566
567 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

574
575 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
576 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
577

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

875 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
876 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
877 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
878 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
879 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
880 Added initial unit test code.
