Cloud images of centos/rhel might not have tar package by default.
add tar for rhel family distros
Let's add this -- I'll try and add your code with some updated tests.
Please add this. Ironically, I ran into this issue as I replaced the tar cookbook with ark, and tar itself (obviously) installs tar. What made thing worse is the fact that the ark resource complains about a failure to extract which is bit vague as there wasn't a binary to do the extraction in the first place.
@burtlo: 👍 from me on this change too. Looks like this branch will need to be brought up to date though.
Closing this in favor of #126, which has a similar change. Thank you for the contribution!
This has been merged into master with #126
