We are planning to release the Chef 0.8.x Debian/Ubuntu packages on
the Opscode APT repository (apt.opscode.com) “Real Soon Now”. The
current version 0.8.10, but subject to change.
This may be a breaking change for people using the repository for Chef
version 0.7.16 due to authentication changes in 0.8.x0.
The 0.8 packages are currently in a Launchpad PPA, for testing on
Ubuntu Lucid and Karmic, to keep them separate from our official APT
repo. We would like upgrading to be as painless as possible, so we are
soliciting feedback for new installations or upgrades with these
sudo apt-get install chef
sudo apt-get install chef chef-server
The package chef-server-webui provides the WebUI, and is optional in
0.8. You’ll need to specify it to install as well if you want to use it.
There are a lot of improvements to the packaging from v0.7.16. Please
see the complete list of the changes in the packaging from earlier
versions in the Debian changelog:
We’re looking for issues with the packaging itself - packaging
specific configuration or the init/postinst scripts, dependency
management, etc. Note that the various Chef daemons are configured to
log in /var/log/chef.
