yum-nux Cookbook

The yum-nux cookbook takes over management of the default repositoryids that ship with CentOS systems. It allows attribute manipulation of nux-dextop, nux-dextop-testing

Requirements

Platforms

  • RHEL/CentOS and derivatives

Chef

  • Chef 11+

Cookbooks

  • yum version 3.2.0 or higher
  • yum-epel

Attributes

The following attributes are set by default

default['yum']['nux-dextop']['repositoryid'] = 'nux-dextop'
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['enabled'] = true
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['managed'] = true
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['gpgkey'] = 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro'
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['description'] = 'Nux Desktop Community Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch'
default['yum']['nux-dextop']['baseurl'] = 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/$basearch/ http://mirror.li.nux.ro/li.nux.ro/nux/dextop/el6/$basearch/'
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['repositoryid'] = 'nux-dextop-testing'
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['enabled'] = false
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['managed'] = false
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['gpgkey'] = 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro'
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['gpgcheck'] = true
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['description'] = 'Nux Desktop Testing Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch'
default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['baseurl'] = 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop-testing/el6/$basearch/'

Recipes

  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource
  • parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the
  • recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'nux-dextop' do
    baseurl 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/$basearch/ http://mirror.li.nux.ro/li.nux.ro/nux/dextop/el6/$basearch/'
    description 'Nux Desktop Community Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey 'http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/RPM-GPG-KEY-nux.ro'
  end

Usage Example

To disable the nux-dextop repository through a Role or Environment definition

default_attributes(
  'yum' => {
    'nux-dextop' => {
      'enabled' => false
    }
  }
)

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the nux-dextop-testing repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['nux-dextop-tesing']['managed'] = true
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop-tesing']['enabled'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-nux'

More Examples

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

node.default['yum']['nux-dextop']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/6/os/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop']['sslverify'] = false
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['baseurl'] = 'https://internal.example.com/centos/6/updates/x86_64'
node.default['yum']['nux-dextop-testing']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-nux'
