I am trying to configure chef on my CentOS sever... sudo chef-solo -c ~/solo.rb -j ~/chef.json -r http://s3.amazonaws.com/chef-solo/bootstrap-latest.tar.gz

should install basic things....

but Iam receiving

/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/chef-0.7.5/lib/chef/provider/package.rb:50:in `action_install': No version specified, and no candidate version available

Searched for it on google and found this

Yum provider seems broken

at tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-212

and it says got fixed in version 0.5.6

my chef version is 0.7.5 and Iam still facing the problem......

Please help me


The latest version of Chef (0.7.14) has RPMs packaged through a community contribution. The RPM installation via yum will install all the dependencies and start up a server (or set up a client) automatically.
