Hi,

Do you know if there is a way to create a centos lxc container or since cucumber-chef only supports an ubuntu test lab that it can only create ubuntu lxc containers? If this is possible could you point me to correct documentation on how to do this through cucumber chef as this may be a deal breaker for us since most of our systems are CentOS.

Thanks,
Jay

Yes this is totally achievable and is in the backlog.

In 2.0.0.rc1 we now have Fedora containers in addition to all flavors of Ubuntu. CentOS is up next.

This is awesome guys.

Owner

We're really really really close to an RC release. Would be awesome if you could do some beta testing for us! Let us know?

Hey Stephen,

I'll see if I can fit it in this week. Should I take latest on master or branch?

RC1 branch is what you want. Ignore the 12.04 ubuntu branch; it's been pulled into the main RC1 branch.

Owner

Bumping this - having fedora containers is neat and all, but we really need CentOS 6 containers.

Owner

Take a look at: http://www.emanuelis.eu/2010/05/28/how-to-create-a-lxc-centos-template/ - CentOS 5 - but should give us a head start.

Owner

Also http://www.whistl.com/files/lxcmgmt.tgz looks like it contains some handy scripts we can look at and build upon.

Owner

Created a base container for CentOS 6. Tested - it functions. Need to get it templatized.
