254
255 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
256 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
257 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its

259
260 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

274 get subarch.
275
276 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
278 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
279 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
280 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
281 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
282
283 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

296 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
297
298 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
300 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
301
302 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
303 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
304 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
305 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
306 as follows:
307 <etc-portage>
308 <file name="package.mask"/>
309 <file name="package.unmask">
310 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
311 </file>
312 <file name="package.use">
313 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
314 -java
315 </entry>
316 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
317 -ldap
318 </entry>
319 </file>
320 </etc-portage>
321

323 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
324 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
325 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
326 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
327 keys in the same order.
328
329 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
330 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
331 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
332 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
333
334 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
335 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
336 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
337 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
338 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
339 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
340
341 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
342 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
343 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
344 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
345
346 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
347 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
348 in add_network_interface.
349
350 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
351 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
352 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
353 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
354 prepare_chroot.
355
356 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
357 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

363 src/GLIClientController.py:
364 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
365 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
366
367 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
368 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
369 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
370 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
371
372 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
373 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
374 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
375 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
376 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
377 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
378 instead of the package atom.
379
380 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
381 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
382 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
383 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
384 __builtin__.file.
385
386 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
387 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
388 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
389 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
390 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
391 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
392
393 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
394 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
395
396 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
397 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
398 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
399 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
400 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
401 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
402 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
403
404 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
405 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
406 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
407 only have a single spawn call.
408
409 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
410 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
411
412 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
413 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
414 be executable.
415
416 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
417 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
418 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
419
420 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
421 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
422 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
423
424 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
425 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

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

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

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

617
618 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
619 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

643 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
644 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
645 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
646 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
647
648 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
649 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
650 when unpacking tarball.
651
652 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

660 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
661
662 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
663 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
664 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
665 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
666
667 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
668 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
669
670 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
671 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
672 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
673
674 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
675 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
676 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
677
678 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
679 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
680 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
681 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
682 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
683 the install profile if available.
684
685 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
686 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
687 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
688
689 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
690 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
691
692 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
693 took chroot out of grub_install command.
694
695 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
696 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
697 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
698 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
699 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
700 as it breaks the piping.
701
702 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
703 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
704
705 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
706 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
707 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
708 GLIInstallProfile.
709
710 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
711 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
712 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
713 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
714
715 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
716 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
717 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
718 to start/end sectors
719
720 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
721 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
722
723 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
724 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
725 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
726 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
727 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
728 for the generated script from spawn()
729
730 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
731 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
732 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
733 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
734 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
735
736 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

741
742 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
743 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
744 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
745
746 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
747 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
748
749 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

766
767 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
768 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
769 so that the installer can continue.
770
771 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
772 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
773 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
774 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
775
776 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
777 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
778 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
779
780 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
781 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
782 of adding them.
783
784 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
785 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works

797 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
798
799 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
800 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
801 the partitions :P
802
803 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
804 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
805 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
806 blank.
807
808 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
809 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
810 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
811
812 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
813 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
814 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
815 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
816 mounting code.
817
818 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
819 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
820 sets it randomly.
821
822 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
823 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
824
825 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
826 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
827
828 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

834 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
835
836 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
837 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
838 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
839 be safe before third pass.
840
841 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
842 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
843 will test when i get back to school.
844 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
845 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
846
847 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
848 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
849 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
850 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
851 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
852
853 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
854 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
855
856 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

858
859 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
860 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
861 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
862
863 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
864 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
865 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
866 some may still have eluded me.
867
868 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
869 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
870 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
871
872 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
873 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
874
875 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
876 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
877 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
878 from GLIInstallProfile.
879
880 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
881 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
882
883 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
884 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
885 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
886
887 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
888 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
889 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
890
891 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
892 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
893 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
894
895 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
896 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
897 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
898
899 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
900 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
901 can be resized.
902
903 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
904 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
905 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
906
907 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
908 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
909 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
910
911 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
912 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
913 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
914 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
915 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
916
917 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
918
919 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
920 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
921 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
922
923 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
924
925 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
926 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
927 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
928 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
929 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
930 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
931 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
932
933 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
934
935 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
936 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
937 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
938 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
939 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
940 Added initial unit test code.
941
942 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
943
944 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
945 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
946 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
