222
223 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
224 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

240 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
241 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
242 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
243 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
244 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
245
246 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

264
265 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
266 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
267 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
268 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
269 as follows:
270 <etc-portage>
271 <file name="package.mask"/>
272 <file name="package.unmask">
273 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
274 </file>
275 <file name="package.use">
276 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
277 -java
278 </entry>
279 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
280 -ldap
281 </entry>
282 </file>
283 </etc-portage>
284
285
286 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
287 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
288 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
289 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
290 keys in the same order.
291
292 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
293 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
294 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
295 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
296
297 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
298 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
299 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
300 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
301 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
302 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
303
304 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
305 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
306 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
307 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
308
309 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
310 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
311 in add_network_interface.
312
313 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
314 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
315 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
316 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
317 prepare_chroot.
318
319 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

328 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
329
330 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
331 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
332 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
333 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
334
335 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
336 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
337 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
338 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
339 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
340 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
341 instead of the package atom.
342
343 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
344 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
345 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
346 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
347 __builtin__.file.
348
349 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
350 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
351 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
352 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
353 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
354 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
355
356 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
357 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
358
359 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
360 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
361 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
362 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
363 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
364 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
365 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
366
367 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
368 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

373 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
374
375 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
376 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
377 be executable.
378
379 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
380 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
381 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
382
383 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
384 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
385 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
386

395 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
396 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
397 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
398 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
399 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions

569
570 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
572 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
573 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
574 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
575
576 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
577 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
578 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

580
581 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
582 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

607 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
608 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
609 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
610
611 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
613 when unpacking tarball.
614
615 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
616 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
617 filesystem_tools code.
618
619 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
620 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
621 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

623 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
624
625 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
626 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
627 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
628 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
629
630 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
631 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
632
633 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
634 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
635 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
636
637 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
638 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
639 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
640
641 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
642 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
643 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
644 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
645 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
646 the install profile if available.
647
648 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
649 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
650 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
651
652 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
653 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
654
655 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
656 took chroot out of grub_install command.
657
658 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
659 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
660 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
661 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
662 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
663 as it breaks the piping.
664
665 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
666 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
667
668 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
669 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
670 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
671 GLIInstallProfile.
672
673 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
674 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
675 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
676 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
677
678 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
680 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
681 to start/end sectors
682
683 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

685
686 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
687 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
688 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
689 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
690 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
691 for the generated script from spawn()
692
693 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
694 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
695 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
696 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
697 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
698
699 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

706 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
707 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
708
709 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
710 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
711
712 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

726 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
727 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
728 added quickpkg to TODO list
729
730 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
731 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
732 so that the installer can continue.
733
734 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
735 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
736 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
737 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
738
739 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
740 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
741 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
742
743 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
744 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
745 of adding them.
746
747 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

760 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
761
762 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
763 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
764 the partitions :P
765
766 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
767 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
768 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
769 blank.
770
771 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
772 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
773 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
774
775 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
776 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
777 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
778 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
779 mounting code.
780
781 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
782 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
783 sets it randomly.
784
785 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
786 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
787
788 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

797 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
798
799 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
800 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
801 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
802 be safe before third pass.
803
804 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
805 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
806 will test when i get back to school.
807 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
808 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
809
810 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
811 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
812 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
813 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
814 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
815
816 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
817 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
818

821
822 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
823 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
824 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
825
826 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
827 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
828 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
829 some may still have eluded me.
830
831 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
832 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
833 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
834
835 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
836 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
837
838 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
839 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
840 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
841 from GLIInstallProfile.
842
843 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
844 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
845
846 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
847 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
848 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
849
850 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
851 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
852 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
853
854 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
855 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
856 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
857
858 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
859 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
860 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
861
862 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
863 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
864 can be resized.
865
866 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
867 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.

869
870 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
871 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
872 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
873
874 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
875 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
876 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
877 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
878 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

882 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
883 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
884 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...

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

897
898 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
899 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
900 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
901 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
902 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
903 Added initial unit test code.
904
905 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
906
907 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
908 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
909 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
