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.

This cookbook includes recipes for using 'equivs' on Debian-based boxes to create and install dummy dpkgs. This is useful for satisfying dependencies on systems when you have compiled a package from source, or when a package is no longer available to apt-sources, but IS still a dependency for other packages (hello Java/Oracle/Ubuntu circa 2012).



-> delegates to system_install


This recipe will install 'equivs'.


Installing dummy packages


  • :install: installs the specified dummy package.

Attribute Parameters

  • :package_name: The name of the dummy package.


# install a dummy package named 'sun-java6-jre'
equivs_install 'sun-java6-jre'


Put recipe[equivs] in your run list. When you want to install dummy packages, use the equivs_install resource.
