Is there any info on when RHEL 7 will be supported by chef-client?

This obviously isn’t a canonical answer, but it’s the start of a holiday
weekend and if you’re stuck on testing something a community answer now is
better than nothing, so…

If you’re looking to see if it will work at all, you can take a look at the
omnibus-chef project on GitHub, which is the source code for the process
that generates the official Chef installers. If you have a RHEL 7 image
handy you can try building the project on it.

Also, if RHEL7’s Ruby environment is new enough, you might be able to get
going with just “gem install chef” … (!!!)

What do you mean by ‘supported’ ?

RHEL7 is based on Fedora 19, which has been supported since its existence.

Chef will work on RHEL7 with the shipped Ruby, and I’d be astonished
if the RPM didn’t just work, since it works on Fedora.

If you want an omnibus package, you can make one yourself by checking
out Omnibus Chef, and building it on your RHEL7 machine.

Are you having any specific issues?

Also, you should be able to just use the RHEL 6 omnibus and have it Just
Work ™.

Since internally we use CentOS and CentOS 7 was just released today we
obviously don’t have it in jenkins yet and don’t have builders and
testers for it.

I’ve run the RHEL6 builds on fedora 20 and they flame tested fine for
me, and we haven’t heard of any issues. Omnibus will serve up the RHEL6
builds if you hit it from a RHEL7 box so ‘curl | bash’ or the chef-full
bootstrap should work fine.
