311 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
312 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
313 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
314
315 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

333 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
334 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
335 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
336 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
337

352
353 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
354 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
355 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
356
357 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
358 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
359 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
360 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
361 as follows:
362 <etc-portage>
363 <file name="package.mask"/>
364 <file name="package.unmask">
365 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
366 </file>
367 <file name="package.use">
368 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
369 -java
370 </entry>
371 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
372 -ldap
373 </entry>
374 </file>
375 </etc-portage>
376

379 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
380 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
381 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
382 keys in the same order.
383
384 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
385 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
386 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
387 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
388
389 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
390 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
391 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
392 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
393 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
394 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
395
396 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
397 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
398 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

403 in add_network_interface.
404
405 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
406 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
407 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
408 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
409 prepare_chroot.
410
411 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
412 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

421
422 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
423 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
424 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
425 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
426
427 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
428 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
429 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
430 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
431 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
432 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
433 instead of the package atom.
434
435 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
436 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
437 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
438 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
439 __builtin__.file.

441 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
442 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
443 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
444 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
445 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
446 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
447
448 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:

702
703 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
704 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

716
717 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
718 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
719 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
720 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
721
722 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.

730 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
731 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
732
733 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
734 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
735 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
736 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
737 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
738 the install profile if available.
739
740 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
741 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
742 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
743
744 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
745 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
746
747 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
748 took chroot out of grub_install command.
749
750 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
752 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
753 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
754 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
755 as it breaks the piping.

761 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
762 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
763 GLIInstallProfile.
764
765 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
766 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
767 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
768 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
769
770 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
771 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
772 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
773 to start/end sectors
774
775 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

777
778 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
779 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
780 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
781 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
782 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
783 for the generated script from spawn()
784
785 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
786 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
787 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
788 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.

798 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
799 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
800
801 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
802 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()

827 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
828 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
829 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
830
831 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
832 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
833 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
834

855 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
856 the partitions :P
857
858 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
859 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
860 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
861 blank.
862
863 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
864 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.

872
873 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

887 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
888 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
889 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
890
891 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
892 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
893 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
894 be safe before third pass.
895
896 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
897 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
898 will test when i get back to school.
899 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
900 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
901
902 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
903 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
904 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
905 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
906 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
907
908 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
909 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
910
911 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
912 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
913
914 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
915 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
916 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
917
918 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
919 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
920 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
921 some may still have eluded me.
922
923 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
924 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
925 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
926
927 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
928 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
929
930 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
931 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
932 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
933 from GLIInstallProfile.
934
935 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
936 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
937
938 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
939 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
940 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
941
942 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
943 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
944 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
945
946 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
947 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
948 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
949
950 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
951 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
952 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
953
954 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
955 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
956 can be resized.
957
958 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
959 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
960 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
961
962 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
963 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
964 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
965
966 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
967 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
968 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
969 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
970 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
971
972 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
973
974 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
975 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
976 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
977
978 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
979
980 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
981 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
982 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
983 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
984 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
985 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
986 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
987
988 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
989
990 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
991 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
992 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
993 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
994 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
995 Added initial unit test code.
996
997 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
998
999 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1000 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1001 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
