7 agaffney 518 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8     Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
9     adding the new value to the end of the file.
10    
11 codeman 512 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12     Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
13     Also updated TODO list.
14    
15 agaffney 509 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
16     Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
17     pythondoc.
18    
19 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
21 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
22 agaffney 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
23     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
24 agaffney 503
25 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
26 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
27 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
28     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
29 agaffney 497
30 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
32 agaffney 494
33 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
34     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
35    
36     8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
37 samyron 491 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
38    
39 agaffney 481 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 agaffney 484 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through

42 agaffney 481
43 codeman 475 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 codeman 476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
45 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
46 codeman 475
47 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
48     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
49    
50 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
51     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
52    
53 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
54     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
55 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
56 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
57 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
58 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
59 agaffney 453
60 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
62     when unpacking tarball.
63 agaffney 451
64 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
65 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
66     filesystem_tools code.
67 codeman 443
68 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
70     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
71 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
72 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
73 codeman 427
74 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
76     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
77 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
78 codeman 422
79 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
81    
82 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
84 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
85 agaffney 415
86 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
87     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
88     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
89    
90 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
91 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
92 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
93     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
94 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
95     the install profile if available.
96 agaffney 402
97     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
98 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
99     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
100    
101 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
103    
104 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
105 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
106    
107     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
109     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
110 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
111 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
112     as it breaks the piping.
113 codeman 390
114 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
116    
117 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
119 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
120 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
121 agaffney 385
122 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
123 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
124     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
125     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
126 agaffney 379
127 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
129 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
130     to start/end sectors
131 agaffney 375
132     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
134    
135 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
137 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
138     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
139 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
140     for the generated script from spawn()
141 agaffney 369
142 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
143     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
144     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
145     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
146     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
147    
148 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
149     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
150    
151 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
152     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
153    
154 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
156 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
157 codeman 345
158 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
160    
161 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
162     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
163    
164 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
165 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
166     lang parameter to __init__()
167 codeman 331
168     10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

173     'emerge -p blah'
174 agaffney 322
175 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
177     added quickpkg to TODO list
178 codeman 319
179 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
181     so that the installer can continue.
182    
183 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
185     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
186     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
187    
188 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
189 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
190 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
191 agaffney 310
192 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
193     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
194     of adding them.
195    
196 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
197     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
198    
199 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
200 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
201 codeman 293
202 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
203     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
204     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
205 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
206 codeman 286
207 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
208     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
209 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
210 codeman 281
211 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
212     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
213     the partitions :P
214    
215 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
217 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
218     blank.
219 agaffney 271
220 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
222 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
223 codeman 268
224 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
225     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
226 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
227 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
228     mounting code.
229 agaffney 264
230 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
231     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
232     sets it randomly.
233    
234 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
236    
237 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
238     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
239    
240 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
242     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
243 codeman 235
244 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
246     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
247 agaffney 230
248 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
250 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
251     be safe before third pass.
252 agaffney 228
253 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
255     will test when i get back to school.
256     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
257     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
258    
259 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
260     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
261     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
262     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
263     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
264    
265 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
266     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
267 agaffney 220
268 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
269 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
270 codeman 222
271     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
272 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
273     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
274    
275 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
277 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
278     some may still have eluded me.
279 codeman 215
280     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
282     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
283    
284 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
285     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
286    
287     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
288 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
289 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
290     from GLIInstallProfile.
291 agaffney 205
292 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
294    
295 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
296 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
297     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
298 agaffney 183
299 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
301     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
302    
303 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
305 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
306 agaffney 162
307 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
309     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
310 agaffney 161
311 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
313     can be resized.
314    
315 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
316     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
317     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
318    
319 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
320     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
321     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
322    
323 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
325     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
326     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
327     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
328    
329 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
330    
331     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
332     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
333     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
334    
335 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
336    
337     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
338     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
339     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
340     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
341     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
342     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
343     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
344    
345 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
346    
347     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
348     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
349     to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
350     existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
351     Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
352     Added initial unit test code.
353
