I’m trying to get Chef to fire up some Fedora 17 beta AMIs on EC2. The
Fedora folks have upgraded to Ruby 1.9.3 in F17; in so doing, they’ve
rearranged stuff so that gems installed via “gem install” are dumped
in /usr/local now.
Therefore, chef-client is in /usr/local/bin, and bootstrap dies at the
end because it can’t find /usr/bin/chef-client. In my “fedora17.erb”,
I’ve already tried patching knife/core/bootstrap_context.rb with the
copy from git head, but that fails because I don’t know how to set
"@chef_config[:chef_client_path]" on the client.
