257
258 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

275 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
276 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
277 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
278 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
279 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
280
281 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

295
296 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
297 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
298 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
299
300 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
301 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
302 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
303 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
304 as follows:
305 <etc-portage>
306 <file name="package.mask"/>
307 <file name="package.unmask">
308 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
309 </file>
310 <file name="package.use">
311 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
312 -java
313 </entry>
314 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
315 -ldap
316 </entry>
317 </file>
318 </etc-portage>
319

321 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
322 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
323 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
324 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
325 keys in the same order.
326
327 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
328 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
329 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
330 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
331
332 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
333 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
334 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
335 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
336 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
337 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
338
339 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
341 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
342 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
343
344 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
345 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
346 in add_network_interface.
347
348 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
349 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
350 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
351 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
352 prepare_chroot.
353
354 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
355 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

361 src/GLIClientController.py:
362 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
363 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
364
365 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
366 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
367 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
368 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
369
370 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
371 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
372 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
373 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
374 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
375 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
376 instead of the package atom.
377
378 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
379 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
380 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
381 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
382 __builtin__.file.
383
384 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
385 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
386 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
387 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
388 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
389 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
390
391 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
392 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
393
394 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
395 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
396 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
397 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
398 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
399 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
400 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
401
402 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
403 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
404 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
405 only have a single spawn call.
406
407 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
408 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
409
410 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
411 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
412 be executable.
413
414 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
415 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
416 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
417
418 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
419 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
420 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
421
422 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
423 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

427 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
428
429 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
430 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
431 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
432 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'
433 in GLIClientConfiguration. Change from .1 and .9 to constants for
434 partitioning. Fix free space overwriting bug. Remove a few unused functions
435 from rewrite. Fix call to get_partition_at()

605 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
606 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
607 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

609 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
610
611 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
613 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

641 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
642 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
643 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
644 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
645
646 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
647 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
648 when unpacking tarball.
649
650 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

653
654 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
655 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
656 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

658 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
659
660 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
661 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
662 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
663 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
664
665 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
666 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
667
668 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
669 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
670 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
671
672 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
673 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
674 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
675
676 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
677 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
678 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
679 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
680 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
681 the install profile if available.
682
683 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
684 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
685 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
686
687 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
689
690 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
691 took chroot out of grub_install command.
692
693 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
694 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
695 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
696 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
697 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
698 as it breaks the piping.
699
700 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
701 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
702
703 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
704 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
705 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
706 GLIInstallProfile.
707
708 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
709 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
710 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
711 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
712
713 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
714 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
715 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
716 to start/end sectors
717
718 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
719 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
720
721 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
722 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
723 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
724 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
725 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
726 for the generated script from spawn()
727
728 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
730 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
731 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
732 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
733
734 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

739
740 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
741 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
742 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
743
744 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
745 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
746
747 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
748 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.

759 'emerge -p blah'
760
761 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
762 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.

764
765 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
766 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
767 so that the installer can continue.
768
769 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
770 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
771 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
772 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
773
774 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
775 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
776 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
777
778 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
779 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
780 of adding them.
781

795 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
796
797 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
798 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
799 the partitions :P
800
801 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
802 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
803 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
804 blank.
805
806 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
807 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
808 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
809
810 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
811 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
812 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
813 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
814 mounting code.
815
816 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
817 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
818 sets it randomly.
819
820 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
821 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
822
823 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

832 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
833
834 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
835 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
836 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
837 be safe before third pass.
838
839 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
840 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
841 will test when i get back to school.
842 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
843 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
844
845 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
846 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
847 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
848 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
849 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
850
851 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
852 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
853

856
857 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
858 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
859 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
860
861 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
862 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
863 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
864 some may still have eluded me.
865
866 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
867 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
868 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
869
870 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
871 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
872
873 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
874 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
875 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
876 from GLIInstallProfile.
877
878 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
879 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()

881 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
882 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
883 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
884
885 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
886 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
887 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
888
889 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
890 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
891 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
892
893 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
894 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
895 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
896
897 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
898 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
899 can be resized.

901 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
902 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
903 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
904
905 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
906 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
907 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
908
909 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
910 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
911 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
912 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
913 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
914
915 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
916
917 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
918 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
919 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
920
921 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
922
923 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
924 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
925 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
926 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
927 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
928 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
929 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...

931 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
932
933 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
934 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
935 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
936 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
937 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
938 Added initial unit test code.
939
940 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
941
942 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
943 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
944 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
