7 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 rewrote filesystem_tools. hope it works.
9
10 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 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
14 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
15
16 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 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
20
21 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
22 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
23
24 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
26 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
27
28 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 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
33 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
34 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 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
37 the install profile if available.
38
39 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
40 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
41 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
42
43 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
44 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
45
46 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
47 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 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
53 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
54 as it breaks the piping.
55
56 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
57 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
58
59 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
60 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
61 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
62 GLIInstallProfile.
63
64 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 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
69 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
71 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
72 to start/end sectors
73
74 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
76
77 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
79 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
80 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
81 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
82 for the generated script from spawn()
83
84 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 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
92
93 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
95
96 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
97 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
98 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
99
100 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
101 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
102
103 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
104 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
105
106 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

111 updates to TODO list.
112
113 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
114 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
115 'emerge -p blah'
116
117 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
118 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
119 added quickpkg to TODO list
120
121 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 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 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
132 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
133
134 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 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
140
141 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
142 updated TODO list. (again)
143
144 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

146 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
147 fixed custom kernel config (again)
148
149 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
150 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
151 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
152
153 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 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
158 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
159 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
160 blank.
161
162 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
163 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
164 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
165
166 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
167 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
168 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
169 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
170 mounting code.
171
172 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 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
177 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
178
179 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
181
182 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
183 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
184 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
185
186 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
187 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
188 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
189
190 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
191 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
192 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
193 be safe before third pass.
194
195 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 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 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
208 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
209
210 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
211 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
212
213 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
214 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
215 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
216
217 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
218 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
219 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
220 some may still have eluded me.
221
222 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 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 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 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
231 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
232 from GLIInstallProfile.
233
234 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
236
237 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
238 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
239 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
240
241 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 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 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
248
249 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
250 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
251 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
252
253 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
