Chef 11 Fedora 18 RPM Packages


#1

Hi Guys,

Just a quick note to let you know that I have built RPM packages for Fedora
18, so you can start playing with chef client/solo etc on Fedora.

We are working on getting chef packages to the mainstream fedora
distributions, but there are some upstream blockers, especially the
’yajl-ruby’ module.

You can find more information how to add my yum repo at
http://yum.jablonskis.org/README.txt

Once added, you can simply run: ‘yum install chef’, after you installed it,
don’t forget to add your validator.pem and other keys to '/etc/chef’
directory. You can start chef-client with 'systemctl start chef-client’
command.

Yes, I wrote systemd service unit file and other bits to make it
fedora-friendly. :slight_smile: I will try to merge that back to opscode/chef codebase
if they accept it, so others can benefit from that.

Please let us know if there are any issues with packages or the way chef is
installed. I tried to follow Fedora packaging guidelines, so all the pieces
should be in already familiar locations.

Thanks,
Vaidas
