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.

Description

Install Microsoft Silverlight 3.0

Requirements

Platform: Microsoft Windows

Attributes

  • node['silverlight']['url'] - Download silverlight from this url. Default is to download the Windows installer from: http://www.microsoft.com/getsilverlight/Get-Started/Install/Default.aspx.
  • node['silverlight']['checksum'] - Checksum of the silverlight installer.
  • node['silverlight']['options'] - Array of options to pass to the silverlight installer. By default the recipe already uses /q for quiet install. See Usage below for other options that can be specified here.

Usage

Modify the installation options as required. By default, no options are specified. This must be an array. Available options are:

  • /q - this is hardcoded in the recipe by default since presumably, you want this.
  • /doNotRequireDRMPrompt - turns off the prompt for DRM playback.
  • /ignorewarnings - ignore non-fatal warnings during installation.
  • /noupdate - disable internal auto-updater.
  • /qu - quiet uninstall. You probably don't want to use this, as it doesn't make sense with this cookbook.

For example, to disable the DRM prompt and auto-updates, put this in the role where you have the silverlight installation:

name "windows_media_center"
description "Systems that are windows media center playback systems"
run_list("recipe[silverlight]")
default_attributes(
  "silverlight" => {
    "options" => ["/doNotRequireDRMPrompt", "/noupdate"]
  }
)

Note that the preceeding slashes are required.

Thanks to this blog post for documenting the installer options. I'm sure they're in the Silverlight deployment guide, but TL;DR.
