Chef 0.9.6 CentOS/RHEL 5 packages - testing


#1

Chef 0.9.6 CentOS/RHEL 5 packages as provided by ELFF
(http://elff.bravenet.com/) are ready for testing.

Installation instructions have been updated here

http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Installation+on+RHEL+and+CentOS+5+with+RPMs

Changes:

  • Lots of build shuffling in the specs to account for chef-server
    changes. chef-server is now just a meta package that installs all the
    server components.
  • Init scripts have been updated to correctly start/stop chef-server and
    the webui.
  • A couple new config variables mirrored from the Debian configs.
  • Added role_path to solo.rb by request of Andrew Shafer.
  • Dropped some patches that were included.

I’ve run through a few test installs (install chef server/client, using
chef-repo, uploading cookbooks/roles etc) on fresh vm’s without issue
but am looking for further testing.

Please note I have not yet tested the upgrade path from the 0.8.16
packages as time is a bit tight lately. If you want to try do let me
know how it goes.

Unless I hear of any issues I’ll bump the new packages over to the
stable repository soon.

Awesome, thanks for all the effort that goes into this.
