267 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
268 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'

271
272 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

289 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
290 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
291 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
292 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
293 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
294
295 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

309
310 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
311 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
312 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
313
314 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
315 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
316 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
317 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
318 as follows:
319 <etc-portage>
320 <file name="package.mask"/>
321 <file name="package.unmask">
322 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
323 </file>
324 <file name="package.use">
325 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
326 -java
327 </entry>
328 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
329 -ldap
330 </entry>
331 </file>
332 </etc-portage>
333

336 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
337 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
338 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
339 keys in the same order.

341 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
342 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
343 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
344 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
345
346 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
347 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
348 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
349 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
350 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
351 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
352
353 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
354 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
355 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
356 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
357
358 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
359 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
360 in add_network_interface.
361
362 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
363 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
364 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
365 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
366 prepare_chroot.
367
368 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
369 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

377 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
378
379 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
380 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
381 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
382 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
383
384 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
385 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
386 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
387 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
388 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
389 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
390 instead of the package atom.
391
392 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
393 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
394 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
395 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
396 __builtin__.file.
397
398 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
399 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
400 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
401 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
402 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
403 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
404
405 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
406 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
407
408 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
409 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
410 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
411 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
412 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
413 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
414 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
415
416 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
417 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

419 only have a single spawn call.
420
421 11 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
422 refixed samyron's fix of set_architecture_template.
423
424 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
425 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
426 be executable.
427
428 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
429 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
430 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
431
432 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
433 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
434 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
435
436 9 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py,
437 src/GLIStorageDevice.py, fe/dialog/dialogfe.py:

619 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
621 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
622 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
623 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
624
625 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
626 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
627 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor

629
630 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
631 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code

655 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
656 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
657 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
658 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
659
660 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
661 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
662 when unpacking tarball.
663
664 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
665 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
666 filesystem_tools code.
667
668 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
669 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
670 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

672 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
673
674 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
675 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
676 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
677 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
678
679 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
680 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
681
682 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
683 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

685
686 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
687 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
688 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
689
690 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
691 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
692 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
693 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
694 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
695 the install profile if available.
696
697 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
698 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
699 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
700
701 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
702 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
703
704 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
705 took chroot out of grub_install command.
706
707 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
708 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
709 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
710 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
711 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
712 as it breaks the piping.
713
714 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
715 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
716
717 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
718 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
719 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
720 GLIInstallProfile.
721
722 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
724 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
725 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
726
727 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
729 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
730 to start/end sectors
731
732 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
733 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
734
735 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
736 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
737 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
738 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
739 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
740 for the generated script from spawn()
741
742 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
743 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
744 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
745 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
746 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
747
748 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

753
754 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
755 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
756 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
757
758 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
759 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
760
761 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

778
779 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
780 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
781 so that the installer can continue.
782
783 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
784 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
785 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
786 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
787
788 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
789 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
790 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
791
792 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
793 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
794 of adding them.
795
796 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

809 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
810
811 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
812 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
813 the partitions :P
814
815 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
816 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
817 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
818 blank.
819
820 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
821 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
822 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
823
824 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
825 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
826 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
827 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
828 mounting code.
829
830 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
831 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
832 sets it randomly.
833
834 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
835 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
836
837 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

846 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
847
848 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
849 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
850 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
851 be safe before third pass.
852
853 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
854 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
855 will test when i get back to school.
856 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
857 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
858
859 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
860 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
861 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
862 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
863 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
864
865 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
866 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
867

872 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
873 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
874
875 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
876 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
877 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
878 some may still have eluded me.
879
880 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
881 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
882 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
883
884 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
885 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
886
887 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
888 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
889 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
890 from GLIInstallProfile.
891
892 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
893 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
894
895 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
896 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
897 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
898
899 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
900 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
901 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
902
903 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
904 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
905 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
906
907 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
908 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
909 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
910
911 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
912 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
913 can be resized.
914
915 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
916 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
917 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
918
919 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
920 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
921 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
922
923 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
924 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
925 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
926 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
927 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
928
929 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
930
931 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
932 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
933 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
934
935 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
936
937 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
938 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
939 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
940 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
941 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
942 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
943 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
944
945 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
946
947 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
948 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
949 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
950 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
951 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
952 Added initial unit test code.
953
954 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
955
956 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
957 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
958 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
