apt-chef

Build Status Cookbook Version

Sets up the default apt package repository for Chef Software, Inc. products.

Primarily intended to be consumed by the chef-ingredient cookbook.

Requirements

Platforms

  • Only supports Ubuntu. May work on other Debian-family distributions. Other platforms don't make sense with apt repositories. However, not all platforms that this cookbook will work on have supported packages from the repository. See supported platforms. Users may need to override attributes in roles or wrapper cookbooks to get this to work, or write their own cookbooks entirely.

Chef

  • Chef 12.9+

Cookbooks

  • none

Attributes

The attributes/default.rb file contains comments with all the attributes that can be set to control how this cookbook sets up the repository.

Recipes

default

Uses the attributes in attributes/default.rb to control how the repository is configured.

current

Hard-codes Chef's public "current" repository. Used for situations where both stable and current repositories are desired.

stable

Hard-codes Chef's public "stable" repository. Used for situations where both stable and current repositories are desired.

A Note About Proxies

If an HTTP proxy is required to reach the configured repository, then that can be managed outside this cookbook using an apt preferences file. A very simple example can be rendered with a file resource:

file '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01proxy' do
  content 'Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxy.example.com:3128";'
end

See the apt preferences documentation for more information and configurable options.

A Note About Ubuntu 10.04 and unsigned packages

Ubuntu 10.04, unlike later versions, will not install unsigned packages without adding a force option. If you should run into this, you can update your consuming resource as follows:

package 'chef-ha' do
  options '--force-yes' if platform?('ubuntu') && node['platform_version'] == '10.04'
end
