208
209 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
210 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

227 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
228 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
229 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
230 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
231

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

278 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
279 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
280 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
281 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
282
283 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
284 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
285 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
286 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
287 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
288 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
289
290 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
292 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

297 in add_network_interface.
298
299 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
300 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
301 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
302 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
303 prepare_chroot.
304
305 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

314 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
315
316 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
317 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
318 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
319 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
320
321 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
322 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
323 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
324 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
325 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
326 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
327 instead of the package atom.
328
329 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
330 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
331 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
332 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
333 __builtin__.file.

336 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
337 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

342 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
343 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
344
345 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
346 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
347 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

359 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
360
361 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
362 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
363 be executable.
364
365 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
366 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
367 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
368
369 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
370 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
371 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
372

451
452 17 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
453 Fixed bug in finishing_cleanup(). Fix a late-night coding error in
454 partitioning. CC serializes install profile to disk and prepare_chroot()
455 copies it into /mnt/gentoo/root
456
457 16 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
458 Moved URI parsing into new function parse_uri()
459

503
504 2 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
505 Exceptions received in CC are logged before being passed to the FE. Added
506 code to CC to handle exceptions *not* thrown by the installer itself.
507
508 1 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
509 get_max_mb_for_resize() returns -1 if not self.resizeable
510
511 30 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
512 More dirty rsync hacks :-/
513
514 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

523 _get_packages_to_emerge()
524
525 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate

542 code.
543
544 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

553 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
554 pythondoc.
555
556 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
558 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
559 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
560 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
561
562 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
563 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
564 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
565 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
566
567 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
568 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

590 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
592 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
593 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
594 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
595 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
596
597 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
598 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
599 when unpacking tarball.
600
601 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
602 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
603 filesystem_tools code.
604
605 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
606 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
607 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
608 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
609 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
610
611 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
612 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
613 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
614 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
615
616 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
617 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
618
619 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
621 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
622
623 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
624 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
625 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
626
627 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
628 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
629 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
630 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
631 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
632 the install profile if available.
633
634 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
635 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
636 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
637
638 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
639 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
640
641 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
642 took chroot out of grub_install command.
643
644 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
645 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
646 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
647 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
648 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
649 as it breaks the piping.
650
651 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
652 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
653
654 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
656 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
657 GLIInstallProfile.
658
659 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
661 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
662 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
663
664 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
665 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
666 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
667 to start/end sectors
668
669 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
670 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
671
672 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
673 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
674 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
675 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
676 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
677 for the generated script from spawn()
678
679 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
680 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
681 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
682 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
683 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
684
685 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
687
688 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
689 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
690
691 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
692 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
693 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
694
695 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
696 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
697
698 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
699 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
700
701 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
702 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
703 lang parameter to __init__()
704
705 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
706 updates to TODO list.
707
708 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
709 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
710 'emerge -p blah'
711
712 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
713 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
714 added quickpkg to TODO list
715
716 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
717 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
718 so that the installer can continue.
719
720 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
721 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
722 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
723 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
724
725 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
726 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
727 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
728
729 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
730 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
731 of adding them.
732
733 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
734 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
735
736 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
737 updated TODO list. (again)
738
739 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

741 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
742 fixed custom kernel config (again)
743
744 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
745 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
746 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
747
748 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
749 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
750 the partitions :P
751
752 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
753 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
754 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
755 blank.
756
757 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
758 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
759 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
760
761 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
762 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
763 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
764 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
765 mounting code.
766
767 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
768 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
769 sets it randomly.
770
771 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
772 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
773
774 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
775 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
776
777 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
778 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
779 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
780
781 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
782 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
783 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
784
785 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
786 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
787 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
788 be safe before third pass.
789
790 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
791 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
792 will test when i get back to school.
793 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
794 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
795
796 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
797 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
798 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
799 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
800 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
801
802 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
803 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
804
805 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
806 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
807
808 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
809 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
810 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
811
812 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
813 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
814 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
815 some may still have eluded me.
816
817 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
818 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
819 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
820
821 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
822 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
823
824 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
825 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
826 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
827 from GLIInstallProfile.
828
829 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
830 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
831
832 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
833 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
834 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
835
836 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
837 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
838 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
839
840 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
841 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
842 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
843
844 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
845 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
846 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
847
848 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
849 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
850 can be resized.
851
852 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
853 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
854 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
855
856 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
857 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
858 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
859
860 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
861 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
862 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
863 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
864 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
865
866 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
867
868 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
869 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
870 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
871
872 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
873
874 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
875 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
876 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
877 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
878 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
879 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
880 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

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