Puppet-agent 5

Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:00 pm

Hi guys ,

just looking at installing and having a play with puppetserver and puppet-agent 5. The reason for this is that the company that i work for has now (finally) upgraded to puppet 5 from 3.8. I know there are some differences so want to get a feel for it. So got my spare pi3 out and added the repos and puppetserver is available for arm and compatible with the pi3. However it depends on puppet agent 4.99 or above. so pretty much 5. However there is no arm package available for it.

So my question is really , has anyone had any success building it from source. As i have not had much luck or has anyone got a link to a good tutorial as the doc are not that clear.

Even better would be if anyone has got a built deb package.

Cheers in advance

Jonathan

I was under the impression it will be in Debian Buster Testing ?

https://packages.debian.org/buster/puppet

There a few users who are running Raspbian Buster Testing, so it may be worth grabbing a SD Card and seeing if it is suitable !!

I have had a look at the packages from the links you gave (thank you ). It still looks like it is an older version of puppet as it referances puppet-master. However puppet master has now been replaced with puppetserver in 5 onwards. Still no sign of puppet agent 5 in there either.

States version 5.x, so you next step is to contact the Debian Package Maintainers:
