5 *GLI-0.01 (9 Feb 2004)
6
7 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
9 when unpacking tarball.
10
11 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
12 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
13 filesystem_tools code.
14
15 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
17 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
18 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
19 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
20
21 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
23 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
24 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
25
26 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
27 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
28
29 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
31 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
32
33 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
35 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
36
37 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
39 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
40 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
41 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
42 the install profile if available.
43
44 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
45 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
46 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
47
48 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
49 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
50
51 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52 took chroot out of grub_install command.
53
54 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
56 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
57 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
58 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
59 as it breaks the piping.
60
61 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
62 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
63
64 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
66 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
67 GLIInstallProfile.
68
69 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
70 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
71 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
72 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
73
74 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
75 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
76 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
77 to start/end sectors
78
79 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
80 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
81
82 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
84 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
85 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
86 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
87 for the generated script from spawn()
88
89 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
90 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
91 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
92 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
93 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
94
95 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
97
98 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
99 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
100
101 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
103 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
104
105 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
107
108 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
110
111 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

121
122 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
123 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
124 added quickpkg to TODO list
125
126 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
128 so that the installer can continue.
129
130 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
131 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
132 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
133 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
134
135 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
137 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
138
139 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
140 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
141 of adding them.
142
143 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
144 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
145
146 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147 updated TODO list. (again)
148

154 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
155 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
156 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
157
158 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
159 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
160 the partitions :P
161
162 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
164 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
165 blank.
166
167 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
169 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
170
171 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
172 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
173 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
174 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
175 mounting code.
176
177 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
178 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
179 sets it randomly.
180
181 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
182 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
183
184 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
185 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
186
187 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
189 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
190
191 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
193 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
194
195 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
196 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
197 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
198 be safe before third pass.
199
200 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
202 will test when i get back to school.
203 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
204 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
205
206 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
207 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
208 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
209 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
210 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
211
212 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
213 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
214
215 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
216 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
217
218 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
220 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
221
222 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
223 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
224 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
225 some may still have eluded me.
226
227 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
229 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
230
231 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
232 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
233
234 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
235 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
236 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
237 from GLIInstallProfile.
238
239 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
240 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
241
242 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
243 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
244 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
245
246 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
247 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
248 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
249
250 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
251 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
252 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
253
254 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
255 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
256 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
257
258 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
259 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
260 can be resized.
261
262 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
263 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
264 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
265
266 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
267 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
268 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
269
270 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
271 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
272 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
273 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
274 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
275
276 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
277
278 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
279 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
280 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
281
282 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
283
284 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
285 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
286 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
287 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
288 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
289 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
290 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
291
292 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
293
294 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
295 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
296 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
297 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
298 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
299 Added initial unit test code.
300
301 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
302
303 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
304 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
305 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
