raspbian_bootstrap

install chef-client on raspberry pi (raspbian).

Chef doesn't offer a omnibus chef-client for raspberry pi yet. Any minute now.

This knife bootstrap script helps get around that by either building a chef omnibus from scratch or using a pre-build deb package using my chef_omnibus_build tool.

The raspbian_bootstrap.erb uses an OPT environent variable to provide provides different options to get ruby and chef.

  • OPT=prebuilt Installs prebuild .deb package
    • Fast: Fast - uses my latest prebuilt chef
    • CHEF_URL=http://your_url_to/your_package.deb - specify your own prebuilt chef package.
  • OPT=build chef_omnibus_builder to build a ruby, omnibus-toolchain, and then a chef package.
    • Slow: Takes many hours.
    • Note: Creates an omnibus user with a locked password for the build process.

Usage

Clone the repo:

git clone https://github.com/dayne/raspbian_bootstrap
cd raspbian_bootstrap

Bootstrap the pi:

knife bootstrap -t raspbian_bootstrap.erb \
      --ssh-user pi --sudo PI_ADDRESS

Full build process by using OPT:

OPT=build knife bootstrap -t raspbian_bootstrap.erb \
          --ssh-user pi --sudo PI_ADDRESS

Ramifications of using this script

  • Chef installed
  • pi's clock will be synchronized using ntpd (network time protocol daemon).
  • chef package installed with chef tools in /opt/chef
