Subject: Gentoo 64bit vagrant base box available
Date: Mon, 20 Dec 2010 01:01:51 +0100
Hey,<div><br></div><div>Disclaimer: this has nothing to do with prefix specifically other than me talking about it on the irc channel with some of you.</div><div><br></div><div>Vagrant is a virtualbox management script, you can read about it here: <a href=""></a></div>

<div><br></div><div>Basically it allows you to build a set of vm&#39;s using either chef or puppet as a configuration manager from a base box.</div><div>After that you can destroy the vm environment, as long as you keep the basebox and the manifests/cookbooks you can resurrect it in minutes again.</div>

<div><br></div><div>I&#39;ve finished a base-box for gentoo which is suitably small (800M) to be distributed.</div><div><br></div><div>It&#39;s a very basic gentoo install with few additions installed.</div><div> - puppet-2.6.2 + deps</div>

<div> - vim</div><div> - metalog</div><div> - vixie-cron</div><div> - latest virtualbox guest additions</div><div> - sudo</div><div><br></div><div>There are no manpages, docs or info pages installed, no nls support and the kernel sources are compressed.</div>

<div>The kernel was generated using genkernel.</div><div><br></div><div>You can download it from here: <a href=""></a></div><div><br>

</div><div>I&#39;ll see if I can make a set of ebuilds for vagrant and dependencies next week, most of the required dependencies are already in portage (and work on my macos64 prefix)</div><div>the only two that are  missing are the virtualbox gem and the vagrant gem itself.</div>

<div><br></div><div>Have fun with it,</div><div><br></div><div>Ramon</div><div><br></div><div>P.S&gt; If you&#39;re on prefix you need to install the libffi / ruby-ffi libs from portage and NOT use gem to install them. If you don&#39;t vagrant will appear to work, but fail somewhere in the vm-instantiation process with unclear errors.</div>
