I can’t seem to finding anything relative on google about this.
For recipes which use templates of both my own recipes and one which came from
the cookbooks on github, it consistently bombs with an error similar to this
when processing templates:
(/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/chef-0.7.8/lib/chef/recipe.rb line 191) had an
different prefix: “/” and “.”
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/pathname.rb:709:in `relative_path_from’: different prefix:
"/" and “.” (ArgumentError)
This example was one that I created, but also happens with the apache2 and
nginx recipes from github cookbooks.
Running this on a clean ec2 ubuntu 9.04 instance:
