During chef-server install, no pkgs for libfog-ruby or chef-expander


#1

hi,

i followed the server install instructions in
http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Package+Installation+on+Debian+and+Ubuntu

it looks like it worked, at least in that most services are present
and running with no errors. the instrux say to install libfog-ruby
(optional) and chef-expander. but apt-get finds no packages for those.
and so the “verify all components are running” step fails because i
have no chef-expander.

where do i find these packages? i figure i can install libfog-ruby
via gem. but, are there debs?

thanks,
kallen

The chef-expander package is in the repo:

http://apt.opscode.com/pool/main/c/chef-expander/

Perhaps the sources.list you have needs to be updated? See the blog
post for the latest release:

You should install fog from RubyGems. The libfog-ruby package in our
apt repository is quite old (0.1.0) and the project has changed
significantly since it was built. I don’t have any ETA on when it will
be updated.

Chef-Expander is part of Chef 0.10.x, and not part of prior branches
of chef. Your configuration is pulling from the Chef 0.9.x repository.
The 0.9 branch of Chef is maintained as a stable branch for those who
haven’t made the transition to the 0.10 feature branch yet. We haven’t
set a fixed time until we end-of-life the stable branch, but it is
planned to be approximately six months since the 0.10 branch was
released. Given that, we expect the 0.9 branch to be archived around
the end of this year.

For Chef 0.10 on Ubuntu natty, you want your sources file to specify
"natty-0.10" as the codename, like this:

deb http://apt.opscode.com/ natty-0.10 main
