259 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
261 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
262 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
263
264 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

278 get subarch.
279
280 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
281 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
282 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
283 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
284 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
285 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
286
287 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

300 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
301
302 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
303 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
304 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
305
306 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
307 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
308 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
309 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
310 as follows:
311 <etc-portage>
312 <file name="package.mask"/>
313 <file name="package.unmask">
314 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
315 </file>
316 <file name="package.use">
317 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
318 -java
319 </entry>
320 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
321 -ldap
322 </entry>
323 </file>
324 </etc-portage>
325
326
327 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
328 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
329 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
330 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
331 keys in the same order.
332
333 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
334 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
335 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
336 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
337
338 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
339 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
340 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
341 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
342 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
343 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
344
345 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
346 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
347 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
348 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
349
350 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
351 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
352 in add_network_interface.
353
354 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
355 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
356 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
357 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
358 prepare_chroot.
359
360 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
361 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

369 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
370
371 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
372 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
373 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
374 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
375
376 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
377 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
378 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
379 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
380 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
381 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
382 instead of the package atom.
383
384 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
385 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
386 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
387 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
388 __builtin__.file.
389
390 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
391 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
392 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
393 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
394 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
395 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
396
397 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
398 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
399
400 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
401 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
402 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
403 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
404 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
405 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
406 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
407
408 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
409 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
410 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
411 only have a single spawn call.
412
413 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
414 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
415
416 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
417 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
418 be executable.
419
420 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
421 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
422 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
423
424 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
425 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
426 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
427
428 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
429 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
430 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.

433 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
434
435 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
436 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
437 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and

611 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
612 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
613 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.

617 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
618 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
619 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

651
652 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
653 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
654 when unpacking tarball.
655
656 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

659
660 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
661 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
662 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

665
666 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
667 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
668 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
669 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
670
671 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
672 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
673
674 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

677
678 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
679 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
680 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
681
682 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
683 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
684 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
685 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
686 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
687 the install profile if available.
688
689 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
690 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
691 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
692
693 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
694 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
695
696 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
697 took chroot out of grub_install command.
698
699 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
701 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
702 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
703 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
704 as it breaks the piping.
705
706 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
707 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
708
709 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
710 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
711 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
712 GLIInstallProfile.
713
714 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
715 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
716 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
717 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
718
719 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
720 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
721 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
722 to start/end sectors
723

726
727 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
729 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
730 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
731 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
732 for the generated script from spawn()
733
734 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
735 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
736 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
737 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
738 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
739
740 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

747 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
748 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
749
750 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

770
771 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
772 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
773 so that the installer can continue.
774
775 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
776 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
777 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
778 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
779
780 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
781 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
782 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
783
784 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
785 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
786 of adding them.
787

801 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
802
803 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
804 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
805 the partitions :P
806
807 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
808 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
809 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
810 blank.
811
812 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
813 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
814 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
815
816 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
817 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
818 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
819 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
820 mounting code.
821
822 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
823 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
824 sets it randomly.
825
826 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
827 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
828
829 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

838 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
839
840 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
841 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
842 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
843 be safe before third pass.
844
845 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
846 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
847 will test when i get back to school.
848 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
849 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
850
851 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
852 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
853 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
854 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
855 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
856
857 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
858 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.

864 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
865 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
866
867 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
868 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
869 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
870 some may still have eluded me.
871
872 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
873 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
874 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
875
876 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
877 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
878
879 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
880 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
881 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
882 from GLIInstallProfile.
883
884 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
885 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
886
887 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
888 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
889 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
890
891 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
892 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
893 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
894
895 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
896 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
897 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
898
899 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
900 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
901 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
902
903 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
904 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
905 can be resized.
906
907 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
908 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
909 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
910
911 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
912 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
913 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
914
915 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
916 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
917 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
918 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
919 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
920
921 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
922
923 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
924 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
925 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
926
927 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
928
929 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
930 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
931 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
932 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
933 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
934 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
935 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
936
937 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
938
939 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
940 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
941 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
942 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
943 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
944 Added initial unit test code.
945
946 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
947
948 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
949 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
950 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
