Provisioning error with Vagrant, Chef and a veewee box

Fabio Mora

Hello all,

I'm trying to build an Ubuntu 12.04.2 amd64 precise box with PHP. Looking around I found this repository that I'd like to use as starting point, trying it everything works fine, but I need to change the base box with a 64bit one.

So, I created a new box using veewee:

veewee vbox define 'web-php54-precise' 'ubuntu-12.04.2-server-amd64'
veewee vbox build 'web-php54-precise'
veewee vbox export 'web-php54-precise'

Cloning source repository:

git clone --recursive git://github.com/simshaun/symfony-vagrant.git
cd symfony-vagrant/vagrant

I changed lines in the Vagrantfile, in order to user my new box:

config.vm.box = "web-php54-precise"
config.vm.box_url = ""

But running vagrant up I get a fatal error during chef-solo deploy. I tried to changerequire_recipe in include_recipe without success. I think that the provisioner doesn't recognize the file networking_basic/attributes/default.rb and so node['networking']['packages'] results undefined.

Note that adding the same recipe directly into Vagrantfile works fine:

config.vm.provision :chef_solo do |chef|
    chef.cookbooks_path = "cookbooks"
    # chef.add_recipe "networking_basic" <= this works
    chef.add_recipe "vagrant_main"
    # cut #
end

Did I miss something configuring the base box with veewee? Some ideas? Thanks.

Here is the log:
