I’m using chef-solo to bootstrap EC2 instances, and seems to be hit by
http://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-281 which is a showstopper.
The good news is that it seems to be fixed already But I’m
wondering how to actually use the fix. Being a java guy, I don’t know
much about ruby, gems etc so my basic question is:
Is there a way to (easily) install a snapshot version of chef? I don’t
want to build from source since chef is installed as part of the
instance startup. Maintaining my own gems are probably(?) also not an
option. Alternatively, when is 0.6.4 due
You seem to have ruled out everything except waiting for the next version
;-). In the spirit of being helpful, let me describe what you need to do to
build your own gem, and you can see if it might be an option.
cd to where you want the source to go
git clone git://github.com/opscode/chef.git
Now the gem should be under pkg/chef-0.6.3.gem
You could install it with something like gem install /path/to/chef-0.6.3.gem
As long as you have an easy way to get the gem file to your AWS instances,
this should hopefully not be a deal-breaker.
