vagrant-lxc base boxes

This repository contains a set of scripts for creating base boxes for usage with vagrant-lxc 1.0+.

⚠️ Unmaintained ⚠️

I've stepped down as a maintainer of the plugin and I'm no longer maintaining this repo. Feel free to use it as a starting point for your own boxes and if you need any help with that just LMK! 🍻

This fork is still maintained: https://github.com/obnoxxx/vagrant-lxc-base-boxes

What distros / versions can I build with this?

  • Ubuntu
    • Precise 12.04 x86_64
    • Quantal 12.10 x86_64
    • Raring 13.04 x86_64
    • Saucy 13.10 x86_64
    • Trusty 14.04 x86_64
  • Debian
    • Squeeze x86_64
    • Wheezy x86_64
    • Jessie x86_64
    • Sid x86_64
  • CentOS
    • 6 x86_64

Building the boxes

In order to build the boxes you need to have the lxc-download template available on your machine. If you don't have one around please create one based on this and drop it on your lxc templates path (usually /usr/share/lxc/templates).

git clone https://github.com/fgrehm/vagrant-lxc-base-boxes.git
cd vagrant-lxc-base-boxes
make precise

By default no provisioning tools will be included but you can pick the ones you want by providing some environmental variables. For example:

PUPPET=1 CHEF=1 SALT=1 BABUSHKA=1 \
make precise

Will build a Ubuntu Precise x86_64 box with latest Puppet, Chef, Salt and Babushka pre-installed.

Pre built base boxes

NOTE: None of the base boxes below have a provisioner pre-installed
