248
249 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
250 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

266 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
267 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
268 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
269 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
270 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
271
272 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

285 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
286
287 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
288 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
289 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
290
291 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
292 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
293 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
294 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
295 as follows:
296 <etc-portage>
297 <file name="package.mask"/>
298 <file name="package.unmask">
299 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
300 </file>
301 <file name="package.use">
302 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
303 -java
304 </entry>
305 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
306 -ldap
307 </entry>
308 </file>
309 </etc-portage>
310

313 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
314 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
315 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
316 keys in the same order.
317
318 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
319 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
320 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
321 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
322
323 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
324 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
325 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
326 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
327 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
328 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
329
330 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
331 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
332 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
333 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
334
335 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
336 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
337 in add_network_interface.
338
339 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
340 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
341 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
342 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
343 prepare_chroot.
344
345 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

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

399 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
400
401 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
402 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
403 be executable.
404
405 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
406 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
407 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
408
409 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
410 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
411 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
412

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

596 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
597 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
598 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
599 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
600 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
601
602 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
603 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
604 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

606
607 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
608 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

632 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
633 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
634 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
635 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
636
637 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
638 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
639 when unpacking tarball.
640
641 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
642 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
643 filesystem_tools code.
644
645 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
647 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

649 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
650
651 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
652 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
653 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
654 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
655
656 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
657 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
658
659 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

662
663 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
664 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
665 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
666
667 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
668 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
669 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
670 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
671 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
672 the install profile if available.
673
674 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
676 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
677
678 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
679 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
680
681 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
682 took chroot out of grub_install command.
683
684 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
685 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
686 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
687 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
688 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
689 as it breaks the piping.
690
691 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
692 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
693
694 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
695 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
696 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
697 GLIInstallProfile.
698
699 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
701 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
702 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
703
704 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
705 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
706 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
707 to start/end sectors
708

711
712 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
714 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
715 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
716 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
717 for the generated script from spawn()
718
719 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
720 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
721 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
722 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
723 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
724
725 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

730
731 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
732 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
733 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
734
735 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
736 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

752 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
753 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
754 added quickpkg to TODO list
755
756 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
757 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
758 so that the installer can continue.
759
760 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
761 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
762 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
763 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
764
765 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
766 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
767 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
768
769 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
770 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
771 of adding them.
772
773 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

786 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
787
788 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
789 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
790 the partitions :P
791
792 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
793 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
794 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
795 blank.
796
797 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
798 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
799 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
800
801 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
802 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
803 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
804 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
805 mounting code.
806
807 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
808 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
809 sets it randomly.
810
811 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
812 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
813
814 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
815 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
816
817 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

823 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
824
825 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
826 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
827 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
828 be safe before third pass.
829
830 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
831 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
832 will test when i get back to school.
833 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
834 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
835
836 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
837 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
838 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
839 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
840 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
841
842 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
843 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
844
845 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

847
848 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
849 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
850 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
851
852 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
853 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
854 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
855 some may still have eluded me.
856
857 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
858 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
859 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
860
861 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
862 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
863
864 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
865 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
866 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
867 from GLIInstallProfile.
868
869 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
870 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
871
872 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
873 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
874 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
875
876 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
877 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
878 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
879
880 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
881 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
882 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
883
884 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
885 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
886 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
887
888 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
889 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
890 can be resized.
891
892 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
893 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
894 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
895
896 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
897 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
898 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
899
900 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
901 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
902 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
903 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
904 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
905
906 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
907
908 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
909 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
910 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
911
912 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
913
914 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
915 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
916 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
917 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
918 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
919 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
920 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
921
922 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
923
924 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
925 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
926 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
927 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
928 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
929 Added initial unit test code.
930
931 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
932
933 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
934 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
935 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
