478 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
479 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
480
481 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

483 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
484
485 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
486 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
487 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
488 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
489
490 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
491 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

504 get subarch.
505
506 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
507 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
508 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
509 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
510 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
511 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()

523 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
524 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
525 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
526 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
527

531
532 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
533 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
534 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
535 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
536 as follows:
537 <etc-portage>
538 <file name="package.mask"/>
539 <file name="package.unmask">
540 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
541 </file>
542 <file name="package.use">
543 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">

553 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
554 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
555 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
556 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
557 keys in the same order.

562 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
563
564 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
565 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
566 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
567 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
568 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
569 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
570
571 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
572 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
573 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.

575
576 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
577 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
578 in add_network_interface.
579
580 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
581 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
582 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
583 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
584 prepare_chroot.
585
586 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

595 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
596
597 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
598 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
599 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
600 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
601
602 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
603 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
604 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
605 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
606 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
607 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
608 instead of the package atom.
609
610 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
611 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
612 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix

616 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
617 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
618 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
619 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support

641
642 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

644 be executable.
645
646 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
647 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
648 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
649
650 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
651 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
652 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.

910 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
911 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
912 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
913 the install profile if available.
914
915 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
916 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
917 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
918
919 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
920 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
921
922 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
923 took chroot out of grub_install command.
924
925 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
926 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
927 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
928 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
929 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
930 as it breaks the piping.
931
932 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
933 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
934
935 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
936 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
937 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
938 GLIInstallProfile.
939
940 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
941 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
942 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
943 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
944
945 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
946 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
947 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
948 to start/end sectors
949
950 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
951 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
952
953 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
954 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
955 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
956 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
957 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
958 for the generated script from spawn()
959
960 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
961 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
962 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
963 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
964 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
965
966 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
967 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
968
969 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
970 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
971
972 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
973 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
974 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
975
976 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
977 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
978
979 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
980 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
981
982 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
983 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
984 lang parameter to __init__()
985
986 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
987 updates to TODO list.
988
989 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
990 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
991 'emerge -p blah'
992
993 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
994 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
995 added quickpkg to TODO list
996
997 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
998 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
999 so that the installer can continue.
1000
1001 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1002 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
1003 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
1004 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
1005
1006 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1007 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
1008 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
1009
1010 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1011 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
1012 of adding them.
1013
1014 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1015 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
1016
1017 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1018 updated TODO list. (again)
1019
1020 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1021 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
1022 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
1023 fixed custom kernel config (again)
1024
1025 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1026 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
1027 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
1028
1029 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1030 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
1031 the partitions :P
1032
1033 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1034 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
1035 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
1036 blank.
1037
1038 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1039 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
1040 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
1041
1042 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1043 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
1044 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
1045 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
1046 mounting code.
1047
1048 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1049 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
1050 sets it randomly.
1051
1052 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1053 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
1054
1055 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1056 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
1057
1058 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1059 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
1060 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
1061
1062 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1063 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
1064 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
1065
1066 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1067 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
1068 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
1069 be safe before third pass.
1070
1071 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1072 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
1073 will test when i get back to school.
1074 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
1075 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
1076
1077 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1078 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
1079 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
1080 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
1081 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
1082
1083 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1084 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
1085
1086 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1087 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
1088
1089 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1090 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
1091 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
1092
1093 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1094 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
1095 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
1096 some may still have eluded me.
1097
1098 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1099 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
1100 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
1101
1102 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1103 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
1104
1105 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1106 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
1107 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
1108 from GLIInstallProfile.
1109
1110 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1111 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
1112
1113 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1114 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
1115 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
1116
1117 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1118 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
1119 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
1120
1121 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1122 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
1123 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
1124
1125 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1126 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
1127 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
1128
1129 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
1130 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
1131 can be resized.
1132
1133 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
1134 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
1135 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
1136
1137 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1138 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
1139 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
1140
1141 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1142 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
1143 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
1144 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
1145 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
1146
1147 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1148
1149 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
1150 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
1151 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
1152
1153 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
1154
1155 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
1156 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
1157 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
1158 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
1159 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
1160 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
1161 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
1162
1163 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1164
1165 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
1166 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
1167 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
1168 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
1169 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
1170 Added initial unit test code.
1171
1172 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
1173
1174 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
1175 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
1176 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
