Ubuntu 12 releases in April


#1

I would really really like to use it, is there any reason I can’t or won’t be
able to use Chef on Ubuntu in the near future. Also keep in mind I am referring
to the use of the apt repositories, which seem to currently only support
oneiric.

Perhaps you guys will publish some information about first upgrading oneiric to
12.04, along with upgrading a previous installation of chef with new
repositories?

I’ve tested chef-client successfully using the Omnibus client install
on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. Installing the Chef Server from the Debian
packages will not work out of the box because the packaged version of
Merb is broken on the version of Rubygems that ships with precise,

We’re working on updating packaging.

I’m using chef-client-0.10.8 on Ubuntu Precise beta. I’ve intalled it
from oneiric apt opscode repository. Works fine for me so far.

Installing the client works via the apt opscode repository. After that,
installing the server via the chef-solo bootstrap process fails with an
init-script not being available. I suspect that due to the file
specificity, there is no init script found for Ubuntu 12.04.

Is the tar.gz for the latest bootstrap scripts lagging the source control
version, or hasn’t these been updated yet?

No, we have no updated the bootstrap for something release 4 days ago :slight_smile: Please file bugs for these issues if you haven’t already.
