I am trying to make puppet work with augeas but it complains there is no augeas provider. Some googling suggested to

sudo yum install augeas
augtool ls /files/etc/php.ini # test it works as expected
sudo yum install ruby-augeas # this is to "bridge" ruby and augeas
ruby -raugeas -e "puts Augeas.open" # Test ruby can talk to augeas
/usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p451/lib/ruby/site_ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in `require': cannot load such file -- augeas (LoadError)
    from /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p451/lib/ruby/site_ruby/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in `require'

Everything works and installs apart from the last line. Ruby just does not know where to find augeas.rb because it is not in the ruby include path

[vagrant@SubscriptionsAPI ~]$ sudo find / -name "augeas.rb"

[vagrant@SubscriptionsAPI ~]$ ruby -e 'puts $:'

Am I correct assuming this is the case? If yes, how can I install augeas for a specific Ruby version? Or is it cleaner to modify the ruby include path?

  • You're mixing up rvm with packages, that is not really a good idea. I suppose you did not install Puppet in RVM, did you? – ℝaphink Sep 1 '15 at 15:12
  • btw, it's "Augeas", not "Augeos" – ℝaphink Sep 1 '15 at 15:12
  • Apologies, I edited the question. I am using a Vagrant base box from a 3rd party - vagrantcloud.com/ginja/boxes/…. It says Puppet was installed using gem – Vladimir Hraban Sep 1 '15 at 15:34
  • @ℝaphink Thanks! You pointed me to the right direction, I had to install a missing augeas-devel package and then install the provider though gem -gem install ruby-augeas. Works like a charm now – Vladimir Hraban Sep 1 '15 at 15:40

Packaged ruby libraries and RVM are two separate environments. You cannot mix them like that, you need to choose which one to use.

So you need to either:

  • install the ruby Augeas bindings using packages
  • or install Puppet in RVM
