Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

deb_pkg_unautostart cookbook

Cookbook Version
CI State

Debian packages like to auto start processes during install, with default configurations, generally not even close to the desired configuration. That's annoying. Lets make it less annoying.


This cookbook is maintained by the Sous Chefs. The Sous Chefs are a community of Chef cookbook maintainers working together to maintain important cookbooks. If you’d like to know more please visit or come chat with us on the Chef Community Slack in #sous-chefs.



  • Debian/Ubuntu


  • Chef 12.1+


  • None


Add to your run list, or include in a recipe, or how ever else you feel like getting a recipe compiled and converged:


There's even an option to get this dropped during the compile phase in cases where you can't get to the start of the run list, or you have packages that are being installed during the compile phase.

  :deb_pkg_unautostart => {
