Chef 0.9.8 CentOS/RHEL 5 packages - testing


#1

Chef 0.9.8 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:

  • Strict dependency on newer mixlib-authentication

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.

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

Not sure when the dependency crept up but as of 0.9.8 the knife/ssh.rb
module requires net-ssh 2.0.23. This at least breaks the knife rackspace
create command, not sure what else.

Thanks for the work on these packages btw
