Description

Cookbook Version Build Status

Installs packages required for compiling C software from source. Use this cookbook if you wish to compile C programs, or install RubyGems with native extensions.

Requirements

Chef 11+ and Ohai 6.14+ are required. For the latest list of supported platforms, please see the metadata.rb.

Note for Debian platform family: On Debian platform-family systems, it is recommended that apt-get update be run, to ensure that the package cache is updated. It's not in the scope of this cookbook to do that, as it can create a duplicate resource. We recommend using the apt cookbook to do this.

Note for OmniOS: Currently, OmniOS's Ruby package is built with GCC 4.6.3, and the path is hardcoded, as the gcc binaries are not installed in the default $PATH. This means that in order to install RubyGems into the "system" Ruby, one must install developer/gcc46. An issue is open upstream w/ OmniOS to rebuild the Ruby package with GCC 4.7.2.

Attributes

Attribute Default Description
compile_time false Execute resources at compile time

Usage

Include the build-essential recipe in your run list:

knife node run_list add NODE "recipe[build-essential::default]"

or add the build-essential recipe as a dependency and include it from inside another cookbook:

include_recipe 'build-essential::default'

Gems with C extensions

For RubyGems that include native C extensions you wish to use with Chef, you should do the following.

  1. Set the compile_time attribute to true in your wrapper cookbook or role:

    # Wrapper attribute
    default['build-essential']['compile_time'] = true
    
    # Role
    default_attributes(
      'build-essential' => {
        'compile_time' => true
      }
    )
    
  2. Ensure that the C libraries, which include files and other assorted "dev" type packages, are installed in the compile phase after the build-essential recipe is executed. For example:

    include_recipe 'build-essential::default'
    
    package('mypackage-devel') { action :nothing }.run_action(:install)
    
  3. Use the chef_gem resource in your recipe to install the gem with the native extension:

    chef_gem 'gem-with-native-extension'
