57 code.
58
59 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

70
71 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
72 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
73 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
74 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
75 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
76
77 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
78 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
79 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
80 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
81
82 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
83 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
84

93 sed to properly strip out junk.
94
95 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
96 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
97 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
98
99 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
100 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
101
102 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
103 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
104
105 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
106 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
107 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
108 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
109 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
110 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
111
112 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
113 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
114 when unpacking tarball.
115
116 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
117 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
118 filesystem_tools code.
119
120 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
121 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
122 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
123 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
124 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
125
126 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
127 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
128 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
129 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
130
131 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
133
134 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
135 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
136 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
137
138 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
139 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
140 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
141
142 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
143 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
144 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
145 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
146 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
147 the install profile if available.
148
149 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
150 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
151 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
152
153 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
154 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
155
156 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
157 took chroot out of grub_install command.
158
159 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
160 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
161 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
162 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
163 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
164 as it breaks the piping.
165
166 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
167 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
168
169 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
170 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
171 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
172 GLIInstallProfile.
173
174 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
176 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
177 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
178
179 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
180 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
181 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
182 to start/end sectors
183
184 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
185 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
186
187 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
188 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
189 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
190 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
191 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
192 for the generated script from spawn()
193
194 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
195 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
196 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
197 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
198 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
199
200 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
201 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
202
203 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
204 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
205
206 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
208 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
209
210 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
212
213 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

218 lang parameter to __init__()
219
220 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
221 updates to TODO list.
222
223 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
224 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
225 'emerge -p blah'
226
227 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
228 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
229 added quickpkg to TODO list
230
231 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
232 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
233 so that the installer can continue.
234
235 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
236 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
237 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
238 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
239
240 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
241 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
242 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
243
244 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
245 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
246 of adding them.
247
248 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
250
251 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
252 updated TODO list. (again)
253
254 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
255 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
256 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
257 fixed custom kernel config (again)
258
259 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
260 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
261 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
262
263 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
265 the partitions :P
266
267 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
268 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
269 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
270 blank.
271
272 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
273 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
274 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
275
276 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
277 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
278 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
279 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
280 mounting code.
281
282 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
283 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
284 sets it randomly.
285
286 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
287 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
288
289 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
290 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
291
292 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
293 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
294 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
295
296 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
298 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
299
300 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
301 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
302 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
303 be safe before third pass.
304
305 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
306 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
307 will test when i get back to school.
308 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
309 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
310
311 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
313 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
314 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
315 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
316
317 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
318 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
319
320 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
321 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
322
323 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
324 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
325 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
326
327 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
328 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
329 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
330 some may still have eluded me.
331
332 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
333 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
334 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
335
336 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
337 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
338
339 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
340 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
341 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
342 from GLIInstallProfile.
343
344 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
345 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
346
347 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
348 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
349 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
350
351 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
352 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
353 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
354
355 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
356 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
357 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
358
359 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
360 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
361 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
362
363 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
364 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
365 can be resized.
366
367 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
368 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
369 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
370
371 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
372 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
373 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
374
375 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
376 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
377 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
378 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
379 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
380
381 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
382
383 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
384 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
385 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
386
387 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
388
389 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
390 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
391 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
392 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
393 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
394 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
395 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
396
397 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
398
399 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
400 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
401 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
402 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
403 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
404 Added initial unit test code.
405
406 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
407
408 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
409 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
410 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
