290 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
291 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
292 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
293 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
294 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
295
296 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

314
315 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
316 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
317 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
318 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
319 as follows:
320 <etc-portage>
321 <file name="package.mask"/>
322 <file name="package.unmask">
323 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
324 </file>
325 <file name="package.use">
326 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
327 -java
328 </entry>
329 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
330 -ldap
331 </entry>

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

342 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
343 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
344 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
345 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
346
347 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
348 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
349 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
350 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
351 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
352 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
353
354 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
355 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
356 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

358
359 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
360 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
361 in add_network_interface.
362
363 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
364 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
365 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
366 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
367 prepare_chroot.
368
369 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
370 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

378 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
379
380 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
381 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
382 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
383 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
384
385 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
386 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
387 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
388 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
389 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
390 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
391 instead of the package atom.
392
393 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
394 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
395 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
396 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
397 __builtin__.file.

399 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
400 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
401 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
402 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support

404 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
405
406 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
407 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
408
409 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
410 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
411 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
412 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
413 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
414 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
415 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].

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

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

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

658 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
659 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
660
661 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
662 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
663 when unpacking tarball.
664
665 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
666 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old

668
669 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
670 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
671 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.

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

686
687 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
689 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
690
691 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
692 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
693 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
694 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
695 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
696 the install profile if available.
697
698 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
699 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
700 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
701
702 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
703 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
704
705 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
706 took chroot out of grub_install command.
707
708 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
709 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
710 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
711 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
712 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
713 as it breaks the piping.
714
715 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
716 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
717
718 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
719 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
720 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
721 GLIInstallProfile.
722
723 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
724 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
725 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
726 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
727
728 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
729 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
730 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
731 to start/end sectors
732
733 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

735
736 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
737 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
738 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
739 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
740 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
741 for the generated script from spawn()
742
743 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
744 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
745 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
746 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
747 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
748
749 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

779
780 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
781 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
782 so that the installer can continue.
783
784 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
785 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
786 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
787 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
788
789 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
790 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
791 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
792
793 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
794 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
795 of adding them.
796
797 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

810 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
811
812 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
813 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
814 the partitions :P
815
816 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
817 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
818 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
819 blank.
820
821 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
822 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
823 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
824
825 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
826 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
827 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
828 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
829 mounting code.
830
831 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
832 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
833 sets it randomly.
834
835 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
836 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
837
838 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

847 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
848
849 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
850 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
851 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
852 be safe before third pass.
853
854 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
855 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
856 will test when i get back to school.
857 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
858 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
859
860 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
861 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
862 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
863 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
864 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
865
866 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
867 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
868

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