210
211 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

228 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
229 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
230 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
231 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
232 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
233
234 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

245 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
246 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
247 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
248
249 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
250 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

252
253 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
254 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
255 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
256 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
257 as follows:
258 <etc-portage>
259 <file name="package.mask"/>
260 <file name="package.unmask">
261 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
262 </file>
263 <file name="package.use">
264 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
265 -java
266 </entry>
267 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
268 -ldap
269 </entry>
270 </file>
271 </etc-portage>
272

274 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
275 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
276 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
277 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
278 keys in the same order.
279
280 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
281 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
282 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
283 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
284
285 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
286 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
287 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
288 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
289 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
290 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
291
292 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
294 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
295 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
296
297 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
298 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
299 in add_network_interface.
300
301 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
302 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
303 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
304 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
305 prepare_chroot.
306
307 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

316 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
317
318 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
319 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
320 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
321 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
322
323 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
324 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
325 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
326 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
327 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
328 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
329 instead of the package atom.
330
331 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
332 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
333 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
334 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
335 __builtin__.file.
336
337 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
338 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
339 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
340 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
341 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
342 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
343
344 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
345 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
346
347 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
348 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
349 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
350 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
351 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
352 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
353 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
354
355 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
356 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
357 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
358 only have a single spawn call.
359

361 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
362
363 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
364 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
365 be executable.
366
367 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
368 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
369 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
370
371 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
372 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
373 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
374

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

508 code to CC to handle exceptions *not* thrown by the installer itself.
509
510 1 May 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
511 get_max_mb_for_resize() returns -1 if not self.resizeable
512
513 30 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 More dirty rsync hacks :-/
515
516 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

544 code.
545
546 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

557
558 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
559 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
560 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
561 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
562 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
563
564 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
565 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
566 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
567 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
568
569 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
570 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

594 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
595 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
596 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
597 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
598
599 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
600 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
601 when unpacking tarball.
602
603 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
604 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
605 filesystem_tools code.
606
607 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
608 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
609 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
610 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
611 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
612
613 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
614 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
615 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
616 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
617
618 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
619 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
620
621 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
622 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
623 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
624
625 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
626 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
627 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
628
629 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
630 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
631 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
632 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
633 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
634 the install profile if available.
635
636 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
637 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
638 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
639
640 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
641 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
642
643 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
644 took chroot out of grub_install command.
645
646 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
647 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
648 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
649 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
650 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
651 as it breaks the piping.
652
653 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
654 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
655
656 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
657 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
658 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
659 GLIInstallProfile.
660
661 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
662 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
663 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
664 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
665
666 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
668 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
669 to start/end sectors
670
671 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
673
674 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
676 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
677 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
678 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
679 for the generated script from spawn()
680
681 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
682 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
683 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
684 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
685 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
686
687 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.

692
693 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
694 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
695 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
696
697 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
699
700 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
701 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
702
703 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

705 lang parameter to __init__()
706
707 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
708 updates to TODO list.
709
710 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

712 'emerge -p blah'
713
714 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
715 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
716 added quickpkg to TODO list
717
718 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
719 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
720 so that the installer can continue.
721
722 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
723 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
724 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
725 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
726
727 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
729 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
730
731 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
732 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
733 of adding them.
734
735 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
736 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works

739 updated TODO list. (again)
740
741 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

744 fixed custom kernel config (again)
745
746 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
747 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
748 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
749
750 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
752 the partitions :P
753
754 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
755 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
756 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
757 blank.
758
759 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
760 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
761 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
762
763 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
764 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
765 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
766 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
767 mounting code.
768
769 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
770 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
771 sets it randomly.
772
773 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
774 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
775
776 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
777 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
778
779 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

781 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
782
783 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
784 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
785 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
786
787 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
788 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
789 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
790 be safe before third pass.
791
792 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
793 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
794 will test when i get back to school.
795 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
796 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
797
798 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
799 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
800 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
801 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
802 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
803
804 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
805 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
806
807 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
808 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
809
810 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
811 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
812 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
813
814 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
815 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
816 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
817 some may still have eluded me.
818
819 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
820 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
821 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
822
823 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
824 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
825
826 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
827 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
828 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
829 from GLIInstallProfile.
830
831 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
832 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
833
834 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
835 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
836 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
837
838 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
839 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
840 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
841
842 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
843 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
844 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
845
846 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
847 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
848 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
849
850 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
851 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
852 can be resized.
853
854 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
855 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
856 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
857
858 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
859 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
860 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
861
862 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
863 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
864 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
865 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
866 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
867
868 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
869
870 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
871 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
872 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
873
874 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>

876 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
877 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
878 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
879 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
880 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
881 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
882 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

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