New to chef/ruby so this may be something rather silly that I’m missing
I am using vagrant with berkshelf to work with testing cookbooks. They all work with the default vagrant box http://files.vagrantup.com/precise32.box, which is running chef10
When I upgrade the chef version on the vagrant box with gem to 11.4.4, the cookbooks start to fail. I upgrade/do nothing else on the box but the gem update and then try vagrant reload.
Two of the books failing are community cookbooks – tmux and ack, which are fairly basic.
For tmux, I’m getting this error:
FATAL: NoMethodError: undefined method `’ for nil:NilClass
The ack one is very similar
When I replace the recipe/default.rb with hard values instead of variables, everything works, so its almost like the attributes aren’t being passed in? I am including the recipe from my “application cookbook” (maybe I need to set all the attributes in my application cookbook as include_recipe doesn’t pull these? But it worked in chef10?)
none of these should require parameters/attributes, take the defaults
Sorry this isn’t much to go on, but can someone confirm that tmux/ack are working for on chef11, or point me in a direction?
