Opscode APT Repository


Hash: SHA1

Hi Chefs!

Two topics about our APT repository.

  1. While we’ve recently released 0.9.10 and 0.9.12, we haven’t updated the packages on the APT repository yet. We’re working on a configuration incompatibility resolution for the chef server. There are two settings that point to the same place:

checksum_path (server.rb)
cache_options (client.rb)

The code in 0.9.10 that clears out the unneeded cached checksum files for cache_options will also remove the files in the checksum_path, as they’re the same location in the debs. The issue is that the checksum_path in server.rb specifies the location of the cookbook files. Once the package installation handles this gracefully without interruption or manual intervention, we’ll post new packages. I apologize for the delay on this.

  1. If you’re using a Debian or Ubuntu system as the management system where you run knife, we have now packaged all the dependencies for knife, net-ssh (v2.0.23), net-ssh-multi, and fog. Since chef doesn’t strictly require these packages to function, they aren’t listed as dependencies, and as they are not all packaged in Debian/Ubuntu (or requisite version), we don’t suggest/recommend either. You can install them with:

sudo apt-get install libnet-ssh-multi-ruby libfog-ruby libhighline-ruby

(highline is packaged by the distros)
