7 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8     rewrote filesystem_tools. hope it works.
9    
10 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
12     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
13 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
14 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
15 codeman 427
16 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
17     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
18     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
19 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
20 codeman 422
21 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
23    
24 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
26 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
27 agaffney 415
28 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
29     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
30     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
31    
32 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
34 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
35     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
36 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
37     the install profile if available.
38 agaffney 402
39     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
41     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
42    
43 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
45    
46 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
47 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
48    
49     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
51     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
52 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
53 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
54     as it breaks the piping.
55 codeman 390
56 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
58    
59 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
61 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
62 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
63 agaffney 385
64 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
66     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
67     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
68 agaffney 379
69 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
71 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
72     to start/end sectors
73 agaffney 375
74     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
76    
77 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
79 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
80     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
81 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
82     for the generated script from spawn()
83 agaffney 369
84 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
85     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
86     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
87     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
88     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
89    
90 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
92    
93 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
95    
96 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
98 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
99 codeman 345
100 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
102    
103 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
104     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
105    
106 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
107 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
108     lang parameter to __init__()
109 codeman 331
110     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
111     updates to TODO list.
112 esammer 4
113 agaffney 322 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

116 agaffney 322
117 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
119     added quickpkg to TODO list
120 codeman 319
121 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
122     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
123     so that the installer can continue.
124    
125 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
126     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
127     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
128     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
129    
130 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
132 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
133 agaffney 310
134 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
136     of adding them.
137    
138 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
140    
141 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
143 codeman 293
144 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
145     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
146     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
147 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
148 codeman 286
149 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
151 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
152 codeman 281
153 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
154     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
155     the partitions :P
156    
157 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
158 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
159 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
160     blank.
161 agaffney 271
162 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
164 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
165 codeman 268
166 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
168 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
169 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
170     mounting code.
171 agaffney 264
172 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
173     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
174     sets it randomly.
175    
176 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
178    
179 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
181    
182 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
184     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
185 codeman 235
186 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
188     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
189 agaffney 230
190 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
192 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
193     be safe before third pass.
194 agaffney 228
195 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
196     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
197     will test when i get back to school.
198     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
199     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
200    
201 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
203     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
204     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
205     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
206    
207 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
209 agaffney 220
210 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
211 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
212 codeman 222
213     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
214 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
215     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
216    
217 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
219 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
220     some may still have eluded me.
221 codeman 215
222     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
224     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
225    
226 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
227     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
228    
229     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
230 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
231 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
232     from GLIInstallProfile.
233 agaffney 205
234 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
236    
237 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
239     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
240 agaffney 183
241 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
242     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
243     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
244    
245 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
246     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
247 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
248 agaffney 162
249 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
250 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
251     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
252 agaffney 161
253 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
254     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
255     can be resized.
256    
257 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
259     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
260    
261 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
262     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
263     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
264    
265 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
266     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
267     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
268     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
269     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
270    
271 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
272    
273     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
274     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
275     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
276    
277 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
278    
279     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
280     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
281     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
282     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
283     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
284     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
285     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
286    
287 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
288    
289     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
290     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
291     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
292     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
293     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
294     Added initial unit test code.
295    
296 esammer 4 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
297    
298     Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
299     for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
300     python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
