Fwd: Call for testing: Ubuntu / Debian packages for Chef 0.8

Hello!

I have uploaded version chef_0.8.10-3 to the PPA. This fixes an issue
with /srv/chef not being owned by ‘chef’ user and the server
subsequently unable to upload cookbooks. The new version also
clarifies some comments in the config files. If you are updating from
a previous package version, dpkg will probably prompt you above the
config files. Install the package maintainers version when prompted:

Configuration file `/etc/chef/server.rb’
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer’s version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : background this process to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** server.rb (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? y

Thanks for testing. I’m hoping this will be the last version of the
0.8 packaging in the PPA before I can move everything over to the
Opscode APT repo this week.

Ohai, Chefs!

We are planning to release the Chef 0.8.x Debian/Ubuntu packages on
the Opscode APT repository (apt.opscode.com) “Real Soon Now”. The
current version 0.8.10, but subject to change.

This may be a breaking change for people using the repository for
Chef version 0.7.16 due to authentication changes in 0.8.x0.

The 0.8 packages are currently in a Launchpad PPA, for testing on
Ubuntu Lucid and Karmic, to keep them separate from our official APT
repo. We would like upgrading to be as painless as possible, so we
are soliciting feedback for new installations or upgrades with these
packages.

https://launchpad.net/~jtimberman/+archive/opschef/+packages

Clients:

sudo apt-get install chef

Server:

sudo apt-get install chef chef-server

The package chef-server-webui provides the WebUI, and is optional in
0.8. You’ll need to specify it to install as well if you want to use
it.

There are a lot of improvements to the packaging from v0.7.16.
Please see the complete list of the changes in the packaging from
earlier versions in the Debian changelog:

http://github.com/opscode/opscode-packages/raw/master/debian/chef/debian/changelog

We’re looking for issues with the packaging itself - packaging
specific configuration or the init/postinst scripts, dependency
management, etc. Note that the various Chef daemons are configured
to log in /var/log/chef.

Thanks!

Hi,

I only found 0.8.10-3 packages for Lucid, not Karmic. Should I wait a
little to see them?

Regards

The packages weren’t in the build queue yet when I sent the message,
so I couldn’t copy them to the karmic distro. They will be published
in a few minutes.
