yum-repoforge Cookbook

Build Status Cookbook Version

The RepoForge project maintains RPM packages for:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
  • CentOS
  • Scientific Linux

The yum-repoforge cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids used by repoforge. It allows attribute manipulation of rpmforge, rpmforge-extras, and rpmforge-testing

Requirements

Platforms

  • RHEL/CentOS and derivatives

Chef

  • Chef 12.14+

Cookbooks

  • yum-epel

Attributes

The following attributes are set by default

default['yum']['rpmforge']['repositoryid'] = 'rpmforge'
default['yum']['rpmforge']['description'] = 'RHEL $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag'
default['yum']['rpmforge']['mirrorlist'] = "http://mirrorlist.repoforge.org/el#{node['platform_version'].to_i}/mirrors-rpmforge"
default['yum']['rpmforge']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge']['managed'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge']['gpgkey'] = 'http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt'
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['repositoryid'] = 'rpmforge'
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['description'] = 'RHEL $releasever - RPMforge.net - extras'
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['mirrorlist'] = "http://mirrorlist.repoforge.org/el#{node['platform_version'].to_i}/mirrors-rpmforge-extras"
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['managed'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge-extras']['gpgkey'] = 'http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt'
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['repositoryid'] = 'rpmforge-testing'
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['description'] = 'RHEL $releasever - RPMforge.net - testing'
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['mirrorlist'] = "http://mirrorlist.repoforge.org/el#{node['platform_version'].to_i}/mirrors-rpmforge-testing"
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['managed'] = false
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['rpmforge-testing']['gpgkey'] = 'http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt'

Recipes

  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource
  • parameters. The following is an example resource generated by the
  • recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'rpmforge' do
    mirrorlist 'http://mirrorlist.repoforge.org/el6/mirrors-rpmforge'
    description 'RHEL $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey 'http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt'
  end

Usage Example

To disable the CentOS Extras repository through a Role or Environment definition

default_attributes(
  :yum => {
    :rpmforge => {
      :enabled => {
        false
       }
     }
   }
 )

To enable the rpmforge repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['managed'] = true

include_recipe 'yum-repoforge'

More Examples

Point the base and updates repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['mirrorlist'] = nil
node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/6/os/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['rpmforge']['sslverify'] = false
include_recipe 'yum-repoforge'
