- Subject: [chef-dev] Update on COOK-1441, database, mysql, postgresql cookbooks
- Date: Thu, 16 Aug 2012 15:18:46 -0600
We have released the following cookbooks today:
* database (v1.3.2)
* mysql (v1.3.0)
* postgresql (v1.0.0)
A huge thank you and cookbook release MVP goes to Jesse Howarth and Jamie
Winsor of RiotGames for their comments, feedback, and of course, pull
Also, thank you to everyone else who participated in the discussions on the
mailing list or in IRC. We appreciate everyone's patience during the process.
It turns out that the problem is very tricky to resolve, and I think the
solution is going to be the best general case for the broadest audience.
The theme of the major changes in these releases is around the installation
of the RubyGems "mysql" and "pg". That is, the client recipes in both
cookbooks will *no longer* install the RubyGems by default. That has been
moved to the ruby recipe in each cookbook. The database cookbook now has
postgresql and mysql recipes that will include the appropriate ruby recipe,
as a matter of convenience. This was tracked under the ticket COOK-1441.
Please be aware that if you are using an Omnibus installation of Chef, the
"pg" gem does not install properly without a huge amount of compilation
hassle. This issue is tracked under ticket COOK-1406.
The following attributes are arrays that contain the package names based on
the platform of the node.
These were namespaced under client and server to make them clearer and easier
to parse programmatically. If you wish to install the native package for the
rubygems your platform (if it has one), you can simply modify the attribute,
and Chef will handle that for you.
A side benefit of the mysql attributes is that Percona should be a "drop in"
replacement by simply populating the attributes with the Percona package
A *lot* of tickets are resolved in these releases. See the CHANGELOG.md and
README.md for more details, and the tickets for the various issues and
