259
260 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
261 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
262 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
263 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
264
265 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

280
281 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
283 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
284 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
285 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
286 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
287
288 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

298 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
299 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
300 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
301 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
302
303 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
304 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
305 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
306
307 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
308 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
309 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
310 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
311 as follows:
312 <etc-portage>
313 <file name="package.mask"/>
314 <file name="package.unmask">
315 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
316 </file>
317 <file name="package.use">
318 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
319 -java
320 </entry>
321 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
322 -ldap
323 </entry>
324 </file>
325 </etc-portage>
326
327
328 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
329 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
330 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
331 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
332 keys in the same order.
333
334 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
335 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
336 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
337 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
338
339 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
340 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
341 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
342 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
343 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
344 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
345
346 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
347 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
348 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
349 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
350
351 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
352 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
353 in add_network_interface.
354
355 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
356 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
357 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
358 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
359 prepare_chroot.
360
361 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
362 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

370 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
371
372 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
373 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
374 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
375 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
376
377 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
378 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
379 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
380 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
381 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
382 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
383 instead of the package atom.
384
385 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
386 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
387 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
388 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
389 __builtin__.file.
390
391 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
392 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
393 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
394 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
395 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
396 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
397
398 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
399 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
400
401 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
402 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
403 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
404 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
405 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
406 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
407 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
408
409 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
410 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
411 Refactor _emerge to remove duplicate code. Refactor mkfs code in backend to
412 only have a single spawn call.
413
414 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
415 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
416
417 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
418 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
419 be executable.
420
421 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
422 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
423 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
424
425 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
426 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
427 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
428
429 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
430 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:
431 Complete support for 'mkfsopts' parameter in main system and dialogfe.
432 Add support for other partition types to dialogfe.
433 Fix all usages of int(possible_big_number) to long(possible_bit_number) to
434 avoid integer overflows and wraparounds.
435
436 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
437 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.
438 'mkfsopts' parameter is now used and support for creating xfs, jfs, and
439 reiserfs is now in (patch from robbat2). Change '_parser' to 'self._parser'

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

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

623 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
624 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

652
653 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
654 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
655 when unpacking tarball.
656
657 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

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

678
679 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
680 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
681 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
682
683 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
684 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
685 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
686 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
687 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
688 the install profile if available.
689
690 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
691 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
692 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
693
694 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
695 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
696
697 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
698 took chroot out of grub_install command.
699
700 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
701 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
702 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
703 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
704 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
705 as it breaks the piping.
706
707 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
708 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
709
710 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
711 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
712 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
713 GLIInstallProfile.
714
715 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
716 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
717 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
718 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
719
720 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
721 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
722 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
723 to start/end sectors
724
725 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

727
728 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
729 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
730 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
731 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
732 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
733 for the generated script from spawn()
734
735 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
736 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
737 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
738 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
739 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
740
741 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

746
747 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
748 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
749 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
750
751 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
752 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
753

771
772 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
773 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
774 so that the installer can continue.
775
776 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
777 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
778 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
779 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
780
781 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
782 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
783 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
784
785 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
786 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
787 of adding them.
788

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

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

865 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
866 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
867
868 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
869 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
870 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
871 some may still have eluded me.
872
873 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
874 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
875 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
876
877 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
878 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.

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