8 More dirty rsync hacks :-/
9
10 29 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
11 Patches from chotchki (bug #90325) to improve CC networking. untested.
12
13 29 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
14 Proxies patch from chotchki (bug #90147). Fixed == instead of = typos in
15 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
16 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
17 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in
18 _get_packages_to_emerge(). Fix _quickpkg_deps() to call
19 _get_packages_to_emerge()
20
21 28 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
22 Added group-adding code to set_users in ArchTemplate
23
24 27 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
25 Added post-install script code
26
27 23 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Fixed encapsulation issues in GLIClientController (bug #90141)
29
30 22 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
31 Update resizing code in GLIStorageDevice
32
33 17 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
35
36 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
37 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
38 code.
39
40 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
41 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
42 adding the new value to the end of the file.
43
44 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
45 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
46 Also updated TODO list.
47
48 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
49 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
50 pythondoc.
51
52 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
53 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
54 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
55 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
56 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
57
58 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
59 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
60 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
61 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
62
63 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
64 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
65
66 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

68
69 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
70 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
71
72 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
73 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
74 sed to properly strip out junk.
75
76 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
77 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
78 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
79
80 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
82
83 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
85
86 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
88 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
89 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
90 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
91 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
92
93 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
95 when unpacking tarball.
96
97 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
98 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
99 filesystem_tools code.
100
101 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
102 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
103 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
104 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
105 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
106
107 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
108 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
109 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
110 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
111
112 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
114
115 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
117 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
118
119 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
120 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
121 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
122
123 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
124 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
125 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
126 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
127 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
128 the install profile if available.
129
130 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
131 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
132 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
133
134 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
135 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
136
137 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
138 took chroot out of grub_install command.
139
140 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
142 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
143 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
144 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
145 as it breaks the piping.
146
147 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
148 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
149
150 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
151 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
152 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
153 GLIInstallProfile.
154
155 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
157 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
158 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
159
160 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
161 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
162 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
163 to start/end sectors
164
165 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
166 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
167
168 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
170 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
171 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
172 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
173 for the generated script from spawn()
174
175 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
176 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
177 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
178 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
179 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
180
181 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
182 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
183
184 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
186
187 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
189 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
190
191 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
192 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
193
194 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
196
197 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
198 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
199 lang parameter to __init__()
200
201 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
202 updates to TODO list.
203
204 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
205 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
206 'emerge -p blah'
207
208 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
209 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
210 added quickpkg to TODO list
211
212 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
213 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
214 so that the installer can continue.
215
216 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
217 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
218 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
219 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
220
221 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
223 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
224
225 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
226 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
227 of adding them.
228
229 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
230 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
231
232 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
233 updated TODO list. (again)
234
235 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
236 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
237 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
238 fixed custom kernel config (again)
239
240 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
241 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
242 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
243
244 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
245 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
246 the partitions :P
247
248 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
250 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
251 blank.
252
253 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
255 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
256
257 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
258 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
259 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
260 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
261 mounting code.
262
263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
264 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
265 sets it randomly.
266
267 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
268 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
269
270 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
271 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
272
273 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
274 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
275 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
276
277 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
278 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
279 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
280
281 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
282 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
283 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
284 be safe before third pass.
285
286 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
287 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
288 will test when i get back to school.
289 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
290 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
291
292 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
294 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
295 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
296 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
297
298 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
299 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
300
301 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
302 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
303
304 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
305 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
306 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
307
308 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
309 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
310 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
311 some may still have eluded me.
312
313 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
314 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
315 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
316
317 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
318 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
319
320 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
321 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
322 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
323 from GLIInstallProfile.
324
325 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
326 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
327
328 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
329 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
330 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
331
332 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
333 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
334 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
335
336 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
337 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
338 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
339
340 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
341 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
342 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
343
344 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
345 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
346 can be resized.
347
348 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
349 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
350 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
351
352 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
353 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
354 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
355
356 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
357 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
358 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
359 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
360 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
361
362 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
363
364 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
365 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
366 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
367
368 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
369
370 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
371 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
372 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
373 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
374 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
375 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
376 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
377
378 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
379
380 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
381 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
382 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
383 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
384 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
385 Added initial unit test code.
386
387 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
388
389 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
390 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
391 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
