Chef Infra Client 14.14.29 and 15.5.15 Builds for CentOS, Debian and Raspbian on 32-bit ARM + Chef LEDs Handler Cookbook

UPDATE: The latest builds and instructions are now at the 32-bit Arm Chef Infra and Cinc Client Builds for Linux landing page.


With another new releases of both the Chef Infra Client 14.14.29 and Chef Infra Client 15.5.15 it’s time for new 32-bit ARM builds.

The previous patches have been upstreamed, so these build right off of the master branch. I’ve removed the BeagleBone Black armv7l builds because the Raspberry Pi 3/4 Raspbian builds work on this Debian machine so I’ve stopped making separate builds (they’re both ARM7l).

Chef LEDs Handler Cookbook

Flashing LEDs    

If you’re using these builds you might be interested in the LEDs Handler cookbook. At the beginning of the Chef client run the LEDs blink a heartbeat pattern and at the end of the client run the LEDs are disabled. If the Chef client run fails the LEDs all stay on. It’s pretty simple but it’s a fun notification that the nodes are converging.
