Graylog Package Builds

This repository contains fpm-cookery recipes to build the official Graylog packages.

The package builds are executed in isolated Docker containers by using the Vagrant Docker Provider.

Please open an issue if you run into any problems with the packages.



Make sure that the user that executes the package builds via vagrant docker-run is a member of the docker group. Otherwise there will be errors regarding the Docker socket.


Since Docker does not have native support for Mac OSX, Vagrant will automatically use a small virtual machine to run docker. This requires VirtualBox to be installed.

Build Packages

For now the fpm-cook command to build the package has to be executed via vagrant docker-run. See the example below.


The following example command builds the graylog-server package for Ubuntu 14.04.

$ vagrant docker-run ubuntu1404 -- fpm-cook package /vagrant/recipes/graylog-server/recipe.rb

To build the graylog-server package on CentOS 6 only the VM name needs to be exchanged.
