7 25 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
8 Changed hostname/domainname for new baselayout.
9 Changed _add_to_runlevel errors to logs.
10 Updated TODO list to show status of GenDialog
11 More updates to GenDialog including two checklists that probably won't work.
12 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
13
14 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
15 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
16 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
17
18 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
19 Modify get_eth_info() to take a full interface name (eth0 fex). float()
20 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
21
22 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
23 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
24 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
25 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
26
27 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
28 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return
29 value from all spawn() calls is checked with GLIUtility.exitsuccess(). Fix
30 small error with <pipe>.close() returning None. Fix space vs. tab issue.
31 Fix undefined variable 'output' issue in spawn().
32
33 20 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
34 More updates to GenDialog and gli-d.
35
36 19 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

41 get subarch.
42
43 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
44 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
45 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
46 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
47 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
48 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
49
50 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
51 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
52 Refactor kernel_compile common stuff, fix 2.4 build process.

56 Add comments about re-writes needed for boxes without sysfs.
57
58 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
59 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
60 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
61 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
62 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
63 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
64
65 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
66 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
67 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
68
69 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
70 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
71 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
72 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
73 as follows:
74 <etc-portage>
75 <file name="package.mask"/>
76 <file name="package.unmask">
77 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
78 </file>
79 <file name="package.use">
80 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
81 -java
82 </entry>
83 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
84 -ldap
85 </entry>
86 </file>
87 </etc-portage>
88
89
90 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
91 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
92 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
93 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
94 keys in the same order.
95
96 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
97 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
98 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
99 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
100
101 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
102 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
103 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
104 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
105 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
106 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
107
108 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
109 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
110 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
111 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
112
113 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
114 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
115 in add_network_interface.
116
117 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
118 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
119 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
120 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
121 prepare_chroot.
122
123 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,
124 +src/cli/README, +src/fe/installer-cli, +src/fe/installer-dialog,

130 src/GLIClientController.py:
131 Add null type to network config, for cases where the interface is already up
132 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
133
134 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
135 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
136 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
137 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
138
139 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
140 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
141 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
142 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
143 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
144 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
145 instead of the package atom.
146
147 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
148 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
149 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
150 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
151 __builtin__.file.
152
153 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
154 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
155 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

157 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
158 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.
159

161 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
162
163 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
164 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
165 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

167 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
168 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
169 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
170
171 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

178
179 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

181 be executable.
182
183 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
184 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
185 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
186
187 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during

433
434 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
435 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
436
437 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
438 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
439 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
440
441 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
442 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
443 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
444
445 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
446 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
447 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
448 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
449 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
450 the install profile if available.
451
452 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
453 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
454 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
455
456 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
457 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
458
459 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
460 took chroot out of grub_install command.
461
462 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
463 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
464 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
465 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
466 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
467 as it breaks the piping.
468
469 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
470 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
471
472 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
473 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
474 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
475 GLIInstallProfile.
476
477 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
478 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
479 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
480 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
481
482 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
483 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
484 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
485 to start/end sectors
486
487 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
488 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
489
490 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
491 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
492 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
493 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
494 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
495 for the generated script from spawn()
496
497 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
498 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
499 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
500 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
501 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
502
503 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
504 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
505
506 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
507 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
508
509 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
510 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
511 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
512
513 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
514 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
515
516 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
517 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
518
519 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
520 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
521 lang parameter to __init__()
522
523 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
524 updates to TODO list.
525
526 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
527 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
528 'emerge -p blah'
529
530 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
531 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
532 added quickpkg to TODO list
533
534 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
535 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
536 so that the installer can continue.
537
538 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
539 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
540 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
541 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
542
543 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
544 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
545 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
546
547 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
548 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
549 of adding them.
550
551 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
552 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
553
554 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
555 updated TODO list. (again)
556
557 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
558 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
559 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
560 fixed custom kernel config (again)
561
562 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
563 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
564 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
565
566 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
567 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
568 the partitions :P
569
570 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
572 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
573 blank.
574
575 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
576 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
577 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
578
579 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
580 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
581 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
582 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
583 mounting code.
584
585 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
586 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
587 sets it randomly.
588
589 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
590 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
591
592 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
593 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
594
595 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
596 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
597 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
598
599 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
600 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
601 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
602
603 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
604 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
605 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
606 be safe before third pass.
607
608 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
609 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
610 will test when i get back to school.
611 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
612 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
613
614 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
615 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
616 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
617 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
618 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
619
620 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
621 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
622
623 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
624 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
625
626 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
627 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
628 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
629
630 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
631 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
632 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
633 some may still have eluded me.
634
635 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
636 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
637 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
638
639 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
640 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
641
642 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
643 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
644 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
645 from GLIInstallProfile.
646
647 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
648 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
649
650 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
651 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
652 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
653
654 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
656 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
657
658 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
659 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
660 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
661
662 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
663 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
664 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
665
666 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
667 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
668 can be resized.
669
670 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
671 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
672 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
673
674 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
675 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
676 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
677
678 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
679 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
680 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
681 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
682 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
683
684 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
685
686 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
687 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
688 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
689
690 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
691
692 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
693 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
694 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
695 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
696 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
697 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
698 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
699
700 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
701
702 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
703 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
704 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
705 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
706 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
707 Added initial unit test code.
708
709 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
710
711 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
712 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
713 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
