I’m running 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04.1, and I’d like to use VirtualBox 4.2, I had to install that PPA:
root@judd-m6600:~# wget -q -O - http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc | sudo apt-key add - OK root@judd-m6600:~# sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian precise non-free contrib" >> /etc/apt /sources.list.d/virtualbox.org.list'
I got my VirtualBox 4.2 installed with
apt-get install virtualbox-4.2
It complained a bit about deps, but I ignored those complains. The VirtualBox 4.2 install ran just fine, installing the kernel modules as necessary.
Now I don’t want the old Vagrant that’s in Ubuntu 12.04.1. I’d like the latest and greatest that works with VirtualBox 4.2
apt-get install rubygems gem install vagrant
After much churning, I have Vagrant 1.0.5 installed.
Setup the Vagrant development environment, on my secondary drive, the SSD.
mkdir /VMs/vagrant_home echo 'export VAGRANT_HOME=/VMs/vagrant_home' >> ~/.bashrc . ~/.bashrc vagrant init vagrant box add http://files.vagrantup.com/precise64.box vagrant init precise64 vagrant ssh
Let the cookbooks commence!
Hacking up some cookbooks to setup the Crowbar Dev Env
Setting up the repo
mkdir /VMs/vagrant_crowbar cd /VMs/vagrant_crowbar vagrant init
Writing the recipes
I started with the Vagrantfile, which I realized could be the decision point for a variety of different possible installations. So a separate configuration file would be useful: personal.json.
