238 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'

261 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
262 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
263 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
264 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
265
266 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

281 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
282 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
283 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
284
285 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
286 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
287 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
288 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
289 as follows:
290 <etc-portage>
291 <file name="package.mask"/>
292 <file name="package.unmask">
293 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
294 </file>
295 <file name="package.use">
296 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
297 -java
298 </entry>
299 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
300 -ldap
301 </entry>
302 </file>
303 </etc-portage>
304

306 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
307 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
308 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
309 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
310 keys in the same order.
311
312 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
313 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
314 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
315 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
316
317 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
318 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
319 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
320 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
321 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
322 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
323
324 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
325 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
326 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
327 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
328
329 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
330 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
331 in add_network_interface.
332
333 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
334 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
335 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
336 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
337 prepare_chroot.
338
339 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
340 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

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

393 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
394
395 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
396 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
397 be executable.
398
399 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
400 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
401 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
402
403 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
404 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
405 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
406

589
590 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
592 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
593 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
594 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
595
596 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
597 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
598 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

600
601 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
602 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

627 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
628 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
629 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
630
631 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
632 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
633 when unpacking tarball.
634
635 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
636 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
637 filesystem_tools code.
638
639 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
640 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
641 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

643 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
644
645 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
647 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
648 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
649
650 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
651 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
652
653 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
654 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

656
657 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
658 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
659 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
660
661 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
662 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
663 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
664 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
665 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
666 the install profile if available.
667
668 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
669 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
670 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
671
672 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
673 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
674
675 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
676 took chroot out of grub_install command.
677
678 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
680 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
681 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
682 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
683 as it breaks the piping.
684
685 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
687
688 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
689 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
690 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
691 GLIInstallProfile.
692
693 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
694 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
695 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
696 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
697
698 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
699 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's

705
706 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
707 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
708 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
709 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
710 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
711 for the generated script from spawn()
712
713 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
714 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
715 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
716 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
717 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
718
719 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

724
725 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
726 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
727 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
728
729 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
730 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

749
750 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
751 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
752 so that the installer can continue.
753
754 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
755 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
756 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
757 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
758
759 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
760 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
761 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
762
763 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
764 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
765 of adding them.
766
767 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

780 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
781
782 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
783 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
784 the partitions :P
785
786 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
787 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
788 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
789 blank.
790
791 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
792 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
793 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
794
795 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
796 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
797 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
798 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
799 mounting code.
800
801 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
802 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
803 sets it randomly.
804
805 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
806 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
807
808 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

817 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
818
819 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
820 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
821 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
822 be safe before third pass.
823
824 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
825 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
826 will test when i get back to school.
827 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
828 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
829
830 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
831 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
832 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
833 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
834 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
835
836 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
837 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
838

841
842 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
843 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
844 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
845
846 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
847 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
848 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
849 some may still have eluded me.
850
851 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
852 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
853 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
854
855 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
856 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
857
858 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
859 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
860 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
861 from GLIInstallProfile.
862
863 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
864 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
865
866 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
867 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
868 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
869
870 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
871 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
872 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
873
874 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
875 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
876 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
877
878 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
879 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
880 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
881
882 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
883 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
884 can be resized.
885
886 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
887 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
888 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!

890 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
891 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
892 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
893
894 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
895 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
896 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
897 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
898 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
899
900 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
901
902 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
903 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
904 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
905
906 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
907
908 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
909 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
910 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
911 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
912 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
913 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
914 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

916 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
917
918 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
919 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
920 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
921 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
922 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
923 Added initial unit test code.
924
925 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
926
927 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
928 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
929 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
