17 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
18 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
19 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
20 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
21 their install profiles!
22
23 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
24 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
25 Fix casting of list to string and concat of None with string, as well as

34 07 Jul 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
35 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
36 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
37 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to
38 _configure_{grub,lilo} since they don't install the loaders anymore
39 themselves.
40

65 function is called twice on the same file.
66
67 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
68 Missing \ in sed in _get_packages_to_emerge()

87
88 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Roll rc_conf and make_conf into master etc_files structure in InstallProfile.
90
91 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

105 update IP to use comma-separated list instead of space separated for services.
106
107 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
108 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
109 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
110
111 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

113 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
114
115 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
116 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
117 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
118 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
119
120 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
121 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

134 get subarch.
135
136 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
138 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
139 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
140 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
141 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
142
143 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
144 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

153 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
154 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
155 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
156 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
157
158 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
160 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
161
162 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
163 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
164 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
165 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
166 as follows:
167 <etc-portage>
168 <file name="package.mask"/>
169 <file name="package.unmask">
170 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
171 </file>
172 <file name="package.use">
173 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
174 -java
175 </entry>
176 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
177 -ldap
178 </entry>
179 </file>
180 </etc-portage>
181
182
183 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
184 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
185 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
186 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
187 keys in the same order.
188
189 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
190 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
191 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
192 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
193
194 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
195 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
196 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
197 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
198 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
199 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
200
201 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
202 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
203 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
204 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
205
206 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
207 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
208 in add_network_interface.
209
210 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
211 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
212 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
213 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
214 prepare_chroot.
215
216 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

225 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
226
227 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
228 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
229 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
230 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
231
232 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
233 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
234 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
235 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
236 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
237 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
238 instead of the package atom.
239
240 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
241 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
242 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
243 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
244 __builtin__.file.
245
246 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
247 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
248 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
249 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
250 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
251 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.

253 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
254 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
255
256 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
257 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
258 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
259 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
260 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
261 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
262 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
263
264 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
265 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

271
272 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
273 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
274 be executable.
275
276 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
277 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
278 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
279
280 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
281 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
282 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
283

449 Update AUTHORS, NEWS, TODO. Added documentation to GLILogger.
450
451 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
452 Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
453 code.
454
455 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
456 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
457 adding the new value to the end of the file.
458
459 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
460 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

462
463 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
464 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
465 pythondoc.
466
467 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
468 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
469 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
470 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
471 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
472
473 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
474 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
475 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
476 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
477
478 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
479 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
480
481 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
482 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
483
484 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
485 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
486
487 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
488 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
489 sed to properly strip out junk.
490
491 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
492 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
493 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
494
495 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
496 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
497
498 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
499 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
500
501 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
502 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
503 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
504 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
505 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
506 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
507
508 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
509 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
510 when unpacking tarball.
511
512 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
513 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
514 filesystem_tools code.
515
516 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
517 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
518 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
519 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
520 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
521
522 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
523 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
524 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
525 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
526
527 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
528 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
529
530 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
531 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
532 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
533
534 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
535 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
536 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
537
538 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
539 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
540 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
541 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
542 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
543 the install profile if available.
544
545 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
546 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
547 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
548
549 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
550 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
551
552 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 took chroot out of grub_install command.
554
555 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
556 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
557 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
558 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
559 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
560 as it breaks the piping.
561
562 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
563 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
564
565 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
566 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
567 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
568 GLIInstallProfile.
569
570 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
571 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
572 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
573 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
574
575 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
576 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
577 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
578 to start/end sectors
579
580 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
581 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
582
583 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
584 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
585 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
586 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
587 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
588 for the generated script from spawn()
589
590 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
591 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
592 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
593 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
594 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
595
596 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
597 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
598
599 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
600 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
601
602 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
603 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
604 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
605
606 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
607 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
608
609 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
610 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
611
612 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
613 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
614 lang parameter to __init__()
615
616 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
617 updates to TODO list.
618
619 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
621 'emerge -p blah'
622
623 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
624 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
625 added quickpkg to TODO list
626
627 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
628 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
629 so that the installer can continue.
630
631 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
632 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
633 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
634 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
635
636 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
637 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
638 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
639
640 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
641 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
642 of adding them.
643
644 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
645 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
646
647 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
648 updated TODO list. (again)
649
650 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
651 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
652 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
653 fixed custom kernel config (again)
654
655 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
656 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
657 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
658
659 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
660 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
661 the partitions :P
662
663 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
664 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
665 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
666 blank.
667
668 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
669 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
670 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
671
672 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
673 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
674 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
675 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
676 mounting code.
677
678 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
679 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
680 sets it randomly.
681
682 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
683 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
684
685 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
686 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
687
688 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
689 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
690 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
691
692 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
693 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
694 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
695
696 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
697 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
698 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
699 be safe before third pass.
700
701 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
702 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
703 will test when i get back to school.
704 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
705 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
706
707 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
708 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
709 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
710 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
711 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
712
713 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
714 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
715
716 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
717 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
718
719 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
720 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
721 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
722
723 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
724 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
725 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
726 some may still have eluded me.
727
728 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
730 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
731
732 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
733 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
734
735 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
736 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
737 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
738 from GLIInstallProfile.
739
740 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
741 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
742
743 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
744 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
745 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
746
747 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
748 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
749 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
750
751 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
752 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
753 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
754
755 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
756 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
757 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
758
759 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
760 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
761 can be resized.
762
763 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
764 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
765 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
766
767 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
768 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
769 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
770
771 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
772 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
773 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
774 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
775 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
776
777 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
778
779 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
780 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
781 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
782
783 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
784
785 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
786 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
787 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
788 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
789 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
790 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
791 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
792
793 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
794
795 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
796 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
797 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
798 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
799 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
800 Added initial unit test code.
801
802 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
803
804 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
805 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
806 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
