291 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
292 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
293 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
294 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
295 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
296
297 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

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

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

343 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
344 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
345 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
346 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
347
348 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
349 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
350 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
351 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
352 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
353 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
354
355 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
356 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
357 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
358 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
359
360 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
361 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
362 in add_network_interface.
363
364 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
365 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
366 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
367 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
368 prepare_chroot.
369
370 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
371 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

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

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

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

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

661
662 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
663 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
664 when unpacking tarball.
665
666 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
667 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old

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

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

687
688 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
689 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
690 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
691
692 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
693 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
694 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
695 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
696 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
697 the install profile if available.
698
699 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
700 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
701 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
702
703 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
704 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
705
706 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
707 took chroot out of grub_install command.
708
709 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
710 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
711 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
712 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
713 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
714 as it breaks the piping.
715
716 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
717 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
718
719 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
720 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
721 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
722 GLIInstallProfile.
723
724 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
725 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
726 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
727 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
728
729 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
730 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
731 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
732 to start/end sectors
733
734 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

736
737 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
738 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
739 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
740 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
741 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
742 for the generated script from spawn()
743
744 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
745 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
746 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
747 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
748 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
749
750 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

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

780
781 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
782 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
783 so that the installer can continue.
784
785 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
786 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
787 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
788 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
789
790 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
791 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
792 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
793
794 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
795 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
796 of adding them.
797
798 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

811 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
812
813 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
814 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
815 the partitions :P
816
817 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
818 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
819 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
820 blank.
821
822 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
823 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
824 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
825
826 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
827 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
828 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
829 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
830 mounting code.
831
832 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
833 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
834 sets it randomly.
835
836 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
837 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
838
839 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

848 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
849
850 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
851 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
852 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
853 be safe before third pass.
854
855 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
856 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
857 will test when i get back to school.
858 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
859 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
860
861 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
862 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
863 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
864 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
865 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
866
867 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
868 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
869

873 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
874 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
875 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
876
877 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
878 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
879 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
880 some may still have eluded me.

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