Chef Server on Debian


#1

Re: http://www.opscode.com/chef/install/
Anyone know why Chef Server isn’t officially supported on Debian?

I note on https://github.com/opscode/chef-docs/issues/72#issuecomment-23634431
that people have made it work, but I don’t want to go too far off the beaten
path if that’s just asking for trouble.

Per http://community.opscode.com/chat/chef#id-421805 , my VM provider isn’t
keen on Ubuntu for servers, so I need some guidance as to how best to proceed.

Thanks kindly,
Martin

PS Thanks to storme_out for initial answers and pointing me to the mailing
list.


#2

I had no problems with chef-server_11.0.8-1.ubuntu.11.04_amd64.deb package
on debian 7.
