Gem packages fail on 11x on first run


#1

I have a recipe that is the last on my run list. I get the below error.
The recipe is install first. If I remove the recipe from the run list then
after a first boot the recipe is installed. So…as of now I have to do two
runs which makes no sense. Without out the recipe and after first boot
then with the recipe. What is soooo special about installing gem files?
Why do that have to be installed first? The same issues is with installing
ec2-knife as well.

In the first recipe in the run list I have
package “build-essential” do
action :install
end

Its also in the recipe in question.

It fails with this error.

gem_package “knife-ec2” do
action :nothing
end.run_action(:install)

gem_package “riemann-dash” do
action :nothing
end.run_action(:install)

Looks like u are trying to install those gems in compile time, which means
chef will try to install them even before installing build essential. Have
you tried installing those gems in execution time? I.e without the
run_action stuff. There are cases when u want to install stuff in compile
time, but its not evident your example.

Yes…I just tried the below and it worked. I have to admit .I dont understand the difference.

Looks like u are trying to install those gems in compile time, which means chef will try to install them even before installing build essential. Have you tried installing those gems in execution time? I.e without the run_action stuff. There are cases when u want to install stuff in compile time, but its not evident your example.

I have a recipe that is the last on my run list. I get the below error. The recipe is install first. If I remove the recipe from the run list then after a first boot the recipe is installed. So…as of now I have to do two runs which makes no sense. Without out the recipe and after first boot then with the recipe. What is soooo special about installing gem files? Why do that have to be installed first? The same issues is with installing ec2-knife as well.

In the first recipe in the run list I have
package “build-essential” do
action :install
end

Its also in the recipe in question.

It fails with this error.

gem_package “knife-ec2” do
action :nothing
end.run_action(:install)

gem_package “riemann-dash” do
action :nothing
end.run_action(:install)
