Hello Ringo!

The main issue here is that we don't have a 64bit package for libeventmachine-ruby1.8 for hardy. We are in the middle of preparing to release the next major version of Chef, 0.8.0, and since several components will rely on eventmachine, we'll make sure the package is available and installable via APT for both i386 and x86_64. I'm planning to work on my build host next week for these packages, and I'll make sure a 64 bit libeventmachine1.8 is available for hardy then.

I am trying to install Chef via Apt. Updated my sources.list, added
the opscode gpg key, but on my Ubuntu 64 Intrepid system, I still miss
the package libeventmachine-ruby1.8. It only seems to be available for
karmic. Where should I grab this package from?

OK, not the apt-get way, but wget+dpkg solved if for my Intrepid
system. However, we have Ubuntu 8.04 LTS as our reference deployment
platform, and I have an unmet dependency trying to install

:~# dpkg -i libeventmachine- ruby1.8_0.12.6-1_amd64.deb

I found out about CHEF-528 after sending my first mail. I hope you
guys keep Chef support for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS in. The "Long Term Service"
addition is of importance in a corporate world. Is it possible to add
the above info the that ticket?
