Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

yum-oracle Cookbook

The yum-oracle cookbook manages some of the yum repos to operate an Oracle
Linux system.


  • Chef 11 or higher
  • yum cookbook version 3.0.0 or higher


The following attributes are set by default.


  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'ol6_latest' do
    baseurl '$basearch/'
    description 'Oracle Linux $releasever Latest ($basearch)'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey 'file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle'

Usage Example

To disable the Oracle 6 latest repository through a Role or Environment definition:

  :yum => {
    :ol6_latest => {
      :enabled => {

Special Note

Oracle refers to Enterprise Linux 5 as "el5" and Enterprise Linux 6 as "ol6", so be careful.


  • ChefSpec unit tests run but not with real Fauxhai data, because Fauxhai doesn't have data for Oracle Linux (yet).
  • Not all repositories that might appear on an Oracle Linux system are managed yet by this cookbook, because most of them are turned off. Pull requests are accepted to do all the work to add them in.
