Hi there and thank you for reading,
I am currently in the process of setting up a puppet service for our ec2 instances and decided to give foreman a try (node certificate management and automatic passenger setup seems nice).
Unfortunately I'm running into difficulties with the installation. I'm on fresh a 'Amazon Linux AMI x86_64 PV':
[root@hostname ~]# uname -a Linux hostname 3.10.35-43.137.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Apr 2 09:36:59 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
and tried the following:
sudo yum -y update sudo yum -y install http://yum.theforeman.org/releases/1.1/el6/x86_64/foreman-release.rpm sudo yum -y install foreman-installer
which results in this:
Error: Package: rubygem-foreman_api-0.1.11-1.el6.noarch (foreman) Requires: rubygem(rest-client) >= 1.6.1 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The suggestions seem useless (--skip-broken installs all dependencies but foreman/puppet). I ended up here and tried installing the repository (after removing the old one)
sudo yum -y remove epel-release sudo yum -y install http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
now again, what I tried:
sudo -y update sudo -y install foreman-installer
results in the same error. Installation without previous update is possible (though yum will complain about Public keys) and results in the following error:
[ec2-user@hostname ~]$ foreman-installer /usr/share/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in `require': cannot load such file -- highline/import (LoadError) from /usr/share/ruby/vendor_ruby/2.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in `require' from /usr/sbin/foreman-installer:3:in `<main>'
I had similar problems while trying to set up passenger and eventually surrendered. I assume this happens due to conflicting ruby version, so:
[root@hostname puppet]# ruby --version ruby 2.0.0p451 (2014-02-24 revision 45167) [x86_64-linux] [root@hostname puppet]# gem --version 2.0.14 [root@hostname puppet]# ls /usr/bin | grep ruby ruby ruby1.8 ruby2.0 [root@hostname puppet]# ls /usr/bin | grep gem gem gem2.0
Did someone run into the same issues? How do I resolve this?
Thanks in advance and thank you for reading through all this!
