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

Building the boxes
In order to build the boxes you need to have the
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
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.
