284 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
285 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
286 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
287 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
288 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
289
290 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

303 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
304
305 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
306 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
307 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
308
309 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
310 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
311 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
312 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
313 as follows:
314 <etc-portage>
315 <file name="package.mask"/>
316 <file name="package.unmask">
317 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
318 </file>
319 <file name="package.use">
320 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
321 -java
322 </entry>
323 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
324 -ldap
325 </entry>
326 </file>
327 </etc-portage>
328

331 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
332 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
333 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
334 keys in the same order.

336 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
337 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
338 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
339 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
340
341 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
342 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
343 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
344 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
345 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
346 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
347
348 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
349 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
350 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
351 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
352
353 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
354 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
355 in add_network_interface.
356
357 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
358 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
359 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
360 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
361 prepare_chroot.
362
363 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
364 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

372 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
373
374 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
375 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
376 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
377 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
378
379 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
380 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
381 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
382 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
383 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
384 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
385 instead of the package atom.
386
387 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
388 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
389 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
390 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
391 __builtin__.file.
392
393 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
394 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
395 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
396 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
397 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
398 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
399
400 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
401 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
402
403 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
404 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
405 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
406 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
407 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
408 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
409 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
410
411 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
412 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

414 only have a single spawn call.
415
416 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
417 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
418
419 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
420 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
421 be executable.
422
423 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
424 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
425 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
426
427 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
428 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
429 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
430
431 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
432 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

437
438 9 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
439 Removed start/end from XML output and added mkfsopts to partitioning info.

614 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
615 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
616 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
617 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
618 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
619
620 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
621 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
622 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

624
625 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
626 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

651 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
652 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
653 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
654
655 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
656 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
657 when unpacking tarball.
658
659 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
660 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old

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

668
669 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
670 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
671 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
672 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
673
674 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
675 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
676
677 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
678 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

680
681 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
682 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
683 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
684
685 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
686 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
687 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
688 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
689 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
690 the install profile if available.
691
692 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
693 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
694 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
695
696 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
697 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
698
699 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
700 took chroot out of grub_install command.
701
702 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
703 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
704 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
705 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
706 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
707 as it breaks the piping.
708
709 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
710 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
711
712 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
714 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
715 GLIInstallProfile.
716
717 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
718 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
719 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
720 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
721
722 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
724 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
725 to start/end sectors
726
727 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
729
730 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
731 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
732 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
733 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
734 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
735 for the generated script from spawn()
736
737 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
738 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
739 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
740 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
741 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
742
743 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

750 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
751 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
752
753 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
754 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
755

773
774 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
775 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
776 so that the installer can continue.
777
778 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
779 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
780 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
781 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
782
783 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
784 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
785 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
786
787 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
788 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
789 of adding them.
790

804 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
805
806 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
807 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
808 the partitions :P
809
810 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
811 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
812 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
813 blank.
814
815 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
816 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
817 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
818
819 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
820 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
821 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
822 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
823 mounting code.
824
825 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
826 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
827 sets it randomly.
828
829 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
830 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
831
832 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

841 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
842
843 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
844 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
845 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
846 be safe before third pass.
847
848 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
849 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
850 will test when i get back to school.
851 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
852 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
853
854 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
855 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
856 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
857 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
858 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
859
860 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
861 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
862

866 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
867 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
868 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
869
870 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
871 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
872 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
873 some may still have eluded me.
874
875 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
876 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
877 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate

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