483 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
484 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
485 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
486 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
487
488 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
489 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
490 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
491
492 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
493 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
494 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
495 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
496 as follows:
497 <etc-portage>
498 <file name="package.mask"/>
499 <file name="package.unmask">
500 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
501 </file>

513 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
514 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
515 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
516 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
517 keys in the same order.
518
519 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
520 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

522 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
523
524 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
525 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
526 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
527 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
528 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
529 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
530
531 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
532 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
533 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
534 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
535
536 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
537 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
538 in add_network_interface.
539
540 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
541 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
542 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
543 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
544 prepare_chroot.
545
546 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

556
557 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
558 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
559 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
560 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
561
562 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
563 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
564 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
565 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
566 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
567 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
568 instead of the package atom.
569
570 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
571 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
572 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
573 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
574 __builtin__.file.

604 be executable.
605
606 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
607 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
608 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
609
610 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
611 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
612 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
613

837
838 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
839 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log

851
852 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
853 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
854 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
855 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
856
857 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
858 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
859
860 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
861 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in

863
864 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
865 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
866 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
867
868 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
869 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
870 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
871 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
872 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
873 the install profile if available.
874
875 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
876 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
877 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
878
879 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
880 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
881
882 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
883 took chroot out of grub_install command.
884
885 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
886 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
887 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
888 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
889 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
890 as it breaks the piping.
891
892 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
893 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
894

898 GLIInstallProfile.
899
900 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
901 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
902 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
903 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
904
905 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
906 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
907 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
908 to start/end sectors
909
910 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
911 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
912
913 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
914 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
915 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
916 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
917 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
918 for the generated script from spawn()
919
920 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
921 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
922 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
923 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
924 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
925
926 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
927 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
928
929 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
930 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
931
932 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
933 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
934 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
935
936 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
937 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
938
939 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
940 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
941
942 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
943 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
944 lang parameter to __init__()
945
946 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
947 updates to TODO list.
948
949 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
950 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
951 'emerge -p blah'
952
953 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
954 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
955 added quickpkg to TODO list
956
957 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
958 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
959 so that the installer can continue.
960
961 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
962 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
963 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
964 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
965
966 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
967 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
968 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
969
970 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
971 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
972 of adding them.
973
974 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
975 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
976
977 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
978 updated TODO list. (again)
979
980 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
981 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
982 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
983 fixed custom kernel config (again)
984
985 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
986 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
987 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
988
989 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
990 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
991 the partitions :P
992
993 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
994 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
995 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
996 blank.
997
998 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
999 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1000 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1001
1002 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1003 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1004 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1005 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1006 mounting code.
1007
1008 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1009 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1010 sets it randomly.
1011
1012 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1013 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1014
1015 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1016 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1017
1018 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1019 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1020 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1021
1022 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1023 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1024 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1025
1026 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1027 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1028 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1029 be safe before third pass.
1030
1031 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1032 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1033 will test when i get back to school.
1034 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1035 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1036
1037 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1038 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1039 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1040 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1041 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1042
1043 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1044 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1045
1046 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1047 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1048
1049 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1050 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1051 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1052
1053 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1054 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1055 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1056 some may still have eluded me.
1057
1058 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1059 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1060 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1061
1062 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1063 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1064
1065 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1066 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1067 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1068 from GLIInstallProfile.
1069
1070 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1071 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1072
1073 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1074 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1075 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1076
1077 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1078 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1079 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1080
1081 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1082 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1083 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1084
1085 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1086 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1087 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1088
1089 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1090 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1091 can be resized.
1092
1093 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1094 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1095 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1096
1097 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1098 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1099 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1100
1101 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1102 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1103 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1104 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1105 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1106
1107 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1108
1109 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1110 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1111 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1112
1113 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1114
1115 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1116 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1117 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1118 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1119 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1120 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1121 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1122
1123 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1124
1125 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1126 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1127 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1128 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1129 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1130 Added initial unit test code.
1131
1132 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1133
1134 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1135 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1136 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
