270 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
271 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
272 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
273 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
274 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
275
276 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

290
291 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
292 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
293 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
294
295 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
296 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
297 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
298 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
299 as follows:
300 <etc-portage>
301 <file name="package.mask"/>
302 <file name="package.unmask">
303 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
304 </file>
305 <file name="package.use">
306 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
307 -java
308 </entry>
309 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
310 -ldap
311 </entry>
312 </file>
313 </etc-portage>
314

317 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
318 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
319 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
320 keys in the same order.
321
322 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
323 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
324 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
325 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
326
327 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
328 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
329 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
330 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
331 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
332 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
333
334 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
335 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
336 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
337 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
338
339 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
340 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
341 in add_network_interface.
342
343 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
344 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
345 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
346 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
347 prepare_chroot.
348
349 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
350 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

358 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
359
360 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
361 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
362 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
363 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
364
365 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
366 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
367 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
368 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
369 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
370 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
371 instead of the package atom.
372
373 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
374 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
375 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
376 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
377 __builtin__.file.
378
379 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
380 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
381 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
382 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
383 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
384 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
385
386 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
387 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
388
389 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
390 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
391 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
392 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
393 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
394 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
395 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
396
397 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

403 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
404
405 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
406 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
407 be executable.
408
409 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
410 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
411 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
412
413 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
414 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
415 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
416
417 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,

424 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
425 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
426 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
427 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
428 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
429 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions

599
600 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
601 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
602 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
603 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
604 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
605
606 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
607 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
608 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
609 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
610
611 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

636 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
637 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
638 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
639 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
640
641 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
642 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
643 when unpacking tarball.
644
645 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
647 filesystem_tools code.
648
649 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
650 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
651 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

653 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
654
655 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
656 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
657 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
658 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
659
660 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
661 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
662
663 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
664 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
665 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
666
667 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
668 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
669 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
670
671 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
673 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
674 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
675 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
676 the install profile if available.
677
678 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
680 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
681
682 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
683 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
684
685 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 took chroot out of grub_install command.
687
688 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
689 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
690 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
691 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
692 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
693 as it breaks the piping.
694
695 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
696 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
697
698 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
699 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
700 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
701 GLIInstallProfile.
702
703 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
704 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
705 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
706 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
707
708 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
709 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
710 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
711 to start/end sectors
712
713 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
714 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
715
716 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
717 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
718 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
719 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
720 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
721 for the generated script from spawn()
722
723 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
724 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
725 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
726 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
727 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
728
729 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

734
735 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
736 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
737 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
738
739 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
740 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
741
742 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

755
756 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
757 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
758 added quickpkg to TODO list
759
760 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
761 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
762 so that the installer can continue.
763
764 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
765 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
766 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
767 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
768
769 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
770 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
771 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
772
773 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
774 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
775 of adding them.
776
777 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

788 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
789 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
790 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
791
792 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
793 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
794 the partitions :P
795
796 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
797 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
798 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
799 blank.
800
801 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
802 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
803 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
804
805 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
806 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
807 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
808 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
809 mounting code.
810
811 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
812 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
813 sets it randomly.
814
815 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
816 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
817
818 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
819 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
820
821 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

827 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
828
829 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
830 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
831 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
832 be safe before third pass.
833
834 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
835 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
836 will test when i get back to school.
837 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
838 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
839
840 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
841 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
842 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
843 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
844 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
845
846 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
847 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
848
849 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
850 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
851
852 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
853 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
854 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
855
856 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
857 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
858 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
859 some may still have eluded me.
860
861 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
862 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
863 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
864
865 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
866 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
867
868 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
869 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
870 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
871 from GLIInstallProfile.
872
873 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
874 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
875
876 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
877 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
878 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.

880 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
881 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
882 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
883
884 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
885 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
886 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
887
888 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
889 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
890 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
891
892 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
893 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
894 can be resized.
895
896 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
897 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
898 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!

900 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
901 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
902 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
903
904 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
905 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
906 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
907 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
908 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
909
910 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
911
912 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
913 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
914 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
915
916 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
917
918 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
919 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
920 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
921 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
922 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
923 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
924 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
925
926 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
927
928 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
929 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
930 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
931 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
932 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
933 Added initial unit test code.
934
935 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
936
937 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
938 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
939 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
