6 6
7 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
9
10 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
12
13 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
15 code.
16
17 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
18 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
19 adding the new value to the end of the file.
20
21 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

27 pythondoc.
28
29 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
31 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
32 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
33 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
34
35 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
36 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
37 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
38 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
39
40 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
42
43 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
45
46 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
47 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
48
49 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
50 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
51 sed to properly strip out junk.
52
53 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
54 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
55 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
56
57 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
58 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
59
60 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
61 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
62
63 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
65 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
66 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
67 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
68 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
69
70 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
71 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
72 when unpacking tarball.
73
74 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
75 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
76 filesystem_tools code.
77
78 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
80 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
81 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
82 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
83
84 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
85 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
86 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
87 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
88
89 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
90 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
91
92 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
93 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
94 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
95
96 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
98 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
99
100 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
102 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
103 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
104 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
105 the install profile if available.
106
107 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
108 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
109 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
110
111 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
112 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
113
114 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
115 took chroot out of grub_install command.
116
117 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
118 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
119 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
120 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
121 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
122 as it breaks the piping.
123
124 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
125 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
126
127 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
128 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
129 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
130 GLIInstallProfile.
131
132 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
133 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
134 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
135 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
136
137 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
138 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
139 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
140 to start/end sectors
141
142 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
144
145 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
147 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
148 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
149 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
150 for the generated script from spawn()
151
152 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
154 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
155 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
156 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
157
158 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
160
161 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
162 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
163
164 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
165 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
166 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
167
168 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
170
171 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
172 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
173
174 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

184
185 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

228 blank.
