  • Sysinst enhancements
    installer sysinst to provide additional support for in order partition disks using GPT prepare multiple disks combine multiple partitions to raid lvm volumes encrypt partitions via cgd other enhancements The installer currently supports installing the system to any available single disk It is possible to select which parts distribution sets of the system to install and also to customise the disk partition layout Sysinst can also use vnode pseudo disks so can be tested without the need to re install the host system The first goal is to allow partitioning disks using the GUID partition table GPT The current partitioning code is tied heavily to the BSD disklabel Fixing it is straight forward but both methods have to be offered and only some architectures can boot from GPT disks The second goal is to allow preparing several disks This part would also be usefull see other enhancements below as a stand alone tool Various disks may be partitioned using different shemes for example when the boot disk can not use GPT but secondary large disks should use it This part also is a direct prerequisite for the following one The third goal is to optionally create logical volumes from multiple partitions or disks either using raidframe or LVM This includes making the volumes bootable if possible The fourth goal is to add support for creating and installing on to cgd encrypted partitions The initial support will not be for the boot partition but other partitions should be supported The other enhancements that might be possible are not in priority order user interface customise colours add back and forward menu options run parts of the installer independently e g disk partitioning set installation cgd enhancements add the ability to encrypt the whole disk and to enter the decryption key at boot

  • Sysinst alternative interface
    similar to CUA text based interface thus being easy to use over serial console as well as on a framebuffer console The current installer code is partly written in plain C but in big parts uses C fragments embedded into its own definition language preprocessed by the menuc tool into plain C code and linked against libterminfo During this project the menuc tool is modified to optionally generate a different version of the C code which then is linked against standard X libraries The C stub fragments sprinkled throughout the menu definitions need to be modified to be reusable for both text and X versions Where needed the fragments can just call C functions which have different implementations selected via a new ifdef Since the end result should be able to run off an enhanced install CD the selection of widgets used for the GUI is limited Only base X libraries are available A look feel similar to current xdm would be a good start Developement can be done on an existing system testing does not require actuall installation on real hardware An optional extension of the project is to modify the creation of one or more port s install

  • Add binary pkg install to sysinst
    tech pkg Mentors Thomas Klausner Duration estimate 3 months IMPORTANT This project was completed by various NetBSD developers You may still contact the people above for details but please do not submit an application for this project sysinst the NetBSD installation tool should be able to get NetBSD set up with most packages relevant to the end user during the installation step to make it possible to get a usable system during the initial setup The packages might be simple packages like screen or bigger ones like firefox Configuration of the packages is not required to happen in sysinst A short overview of the milestones involved Improve sysinst so it can list a pkgsummary gz file on the install media and offer to install a subset of them There should be a chooser included in sysinst where the user can select the packages they want to install There should be some pre defined sets included with sysinst that define the necessary packages for a Gnome or KDE desktop so the user just chooses them possibly just by adding appropriate meta packages to pkgsrc Support fetching a pkgsummary file from a remote host usually ftp NetBSD org with useful default PATH
