Chef Client on Ubuntu ARM (arm64)

Posted by chathaway on Jan. 3, 2019, 6:39 p.m.

We use some arm boxes at work for testing, and do our provisioning with Chef. Chef bootstrap doesn't work because ARM is not an official supported platform for Chef.

To work around this, I installed a few packages:

apt install ruby
apt build-dep ruby-yajl

Then Installed Chef as a Gem:

sudo gem install chef

With this done, I could use knife boostrap as normal :).
