Vim problem with chef-zero and vagrant


#1

Hi,

When I tried to install the vim recipe, I got this error message:

Tony,

If you look at the chef_zero documentation, it looks like it’s
"chef_zero" not :chef_zero.

Can you humor me and see if that fixes it?

Also, in this case, I’d look at chef-apply over chef_zero, it seems
closer to what you’re attempting to do.

HTH,
JJ

Hi JJ,

No luck. Same problem:

DEBUG: Caught InvalidVersionConstraint. This means that a key in
value_for_platform cannot be interpreted as a Chef::VersionConstraint.

Can you post your vim/recipes/package.rb? What version of Chef are you
using? What OS and version is the guest?

Hi Julian,

I did not make my own vim package. I specify the package in Berksfile

encoding: utf-8

source ‘https://supermarket.getchef.com

cookbook "apt"
cookbook “python”, {}
cookbook “vim”, {}
cookbook “git”, {}
cookbook “postfix”, {}
cookbook ‘sensu’, '~> 2.3.0’
cookbook “uchiwa”

Chef version

$ chef -v
Chef Development Kit Version: 0.3.6

The vagrant plugin I am using

$ vagrant plugin list
chef-zero (2.2.1)
vagrant-aws (0.6.0)
vagrant-berkshelf (4.0.2)
vagrant-cachier (1.2.0)
vagrant-chef-zero (0.7.1)
vagrant-omnibus (1.4.1)
vagrant-share (1.1.3, system)

My OS is OSX 10.10.1

The guest OS is “ubuntu/trusty64”

Don’t EVER make the mistake that you can design something better than what
you get from ruthless massively parallel trial-and-error with a feedback
cycle. That’s giving your intelligence much too much credit.
