RVM in conjunction with Chef is shit.
default[:chef_ruby][:version] = "2.0.0-p247": string containing the ruby version you want to install.
default[:chef_ruby][:rubygems][:version] = "2.0.6": string containing the rubygems version you want to install.
default[:chef_ruby][:checksum] = '3e...d3': checksum of the Ruby tarball.
default[:chef_ruby][:rubygems][:checksum] = '36...39': checksum of the RubyGems tarball.
default[:chef_ruby][:prefix] = '/usr': configure prefix path for Ruby.
default[:chef_ruby][:make_opts] = '-j10': make options for building Ruby.
You can update the tarball checksums on OS X using
shasum -a 256 followed by the path of the tarballs. Or, alternatively, use Curl as follows.
curl http://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/2.0/ruby-2.0.0-p247.tar.gz | shasum -a 256 curl http://http://production.cf.rubygems.org/rubygems/rubygems-2.0.6.tgz | shasum -a 256
default: installs Ruby from source.
When setting up a system for the first time, Ohai will profile it and then store the ruby directory as
This attribute (normally referenced in cookbooks as
languages[:ruby][:gems_dir]) does not get reset automatically when a new Ruby is
installed. The default recipe tells Ohai to reload its attributes. Adding this block to any recipe that uses the attribute
then, whenever Ohai reloads its attributes, your cookbook will also reload its attributes.
ruby_block "reload_ruby" do block do node.load_attribute_by_short_filename('<filename of attributes, eg default>', '<name of cookbook that contains the attributes>') end action :nothing subscribes :create, "ohai[reload]", :immediately end
This cookbook was originally written by Carlo Zottmann but he seems to have stopped maintaining it. Now it is maintained by Lytro.
