230
231 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'

235
236 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

253 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
254 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
255 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
256 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
257 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
258
259 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

272 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
273
274 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
275 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
276 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
277
278 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
279 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
280 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
281 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
282 as follows:
283 <etc-portage>
284 <file name="package.mask"/>
285 <file name="package.unmask">
286 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
287 </file>
288 <file name="package.use">
289 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
290 -java
291 </entry>
292 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
293 -ldap
294 </entry>
295 </file>
296 </etc-portage>
297
298
299 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
300 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
301 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
302 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
303 keys in the same order.
304
305 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
306 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
307 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
308 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
309
310 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
311 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
312 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
313 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
314 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
315 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
316
317 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
318 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
319 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
320 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
321
322 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
323 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
324 in add_network_interface.
325
326 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
327 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
328 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
329 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
330 prepare_chroot.
331
332 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
333 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

341 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
342
343 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
344 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
345 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
346 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
347
348 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
349 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
350 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
351 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
352 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
353 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
354 instead of the package atom.
355
356 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
357 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
358 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
359 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
360 __builtin__.file.
361
362 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
363 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
364 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
365 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
366 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
367 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
368
369 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
370 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
371
372 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
373 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
374 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
375 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
376 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
377 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
378 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
379
380 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
381 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
382 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
383 only have a single spawn call.
384

386 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
387
388 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
389 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
390 be executable.
391
392 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
393 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
394 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
395
396 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
397 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
398 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
399
400 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
401 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

583 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
584 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
585 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
586 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
587 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
588
589 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
590 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
591 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

621 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
622 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
623
624 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
625 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
626 when unpacking tarball.
627
628 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

631
632 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
633 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
634 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

636 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
637
638 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
639 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
640 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
641 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
642
643 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
644 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
645
646 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
647 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

649
650 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
651 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
652 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
653
654 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
656 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
657 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
658 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
659 the install profile if available.
660
661 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
662 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
663 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
664
665 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
666 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
667
668 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
669 took chroot out of grub_install command.
670
671 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
673 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
674 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
675 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
676 as it breaks the piping.
677
678 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
679 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
680
681 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
682 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
683 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
684 GLIInstallProfile.
685
686 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
687 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
688 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
689 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
690
691 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
692 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's

698
699 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
701 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
702 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
703 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
704 for the generated script from spawn()
705
706 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
707 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
708 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
709 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
710 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
711
712 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

719 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
720 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
721
722 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

742
743 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
744 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
745 so that the installer can continue.
746
747 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
748 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
749 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
750 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
751
752 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
753 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
754 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
755
756 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
757 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
758 of adding them.
759

773 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
774
775 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
776 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
777 the partitions :P
778
779 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
780 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
781 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
782 blank.
783
784 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
785 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
786 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
787
788 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
789 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
790 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
791 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
792 mounting code.
793
794 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

796 sets it randomly.
797
798 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
799 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
800
801 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

810 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
811
812 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
813 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
814 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
815 be safe before third pass.
816
817 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
818 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
819 will test when i get back to school.
820 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
821 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
822
823 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
824 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
825 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
826 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
827 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
828
829 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
830 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.

835 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
836 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
837 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
838
839 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
840 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
841 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
842 some may still have eluded me.
843
844 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
845 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
846 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
847
848 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
849 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
850
851 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
852 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
853 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
854 from GLIInstallProfile.
855
856 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
857 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
858
859 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
860 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
861 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
862
863 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
864 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
865 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
866
867 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
868 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
869 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
870
871 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
872 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
873 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
874
875 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
876 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
877 can be resized.

883 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
884 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
885 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
886
887 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
888 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
889 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
890 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
891 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.

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

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

910
911 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
912 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
913 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
914 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
915 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
916 Added initial unit test code.
917
918 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
919
920 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
921 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
922 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
