Fedora/CentOS RPMs for Otto project, Packer and Vault

Do you always think twice before downloading software that comes in a tar or zip file? Me too, I like to manage my software in easy and straightforward manner and that’s why I repackaged Otto, Packer and Vault in RPM format. If you are running Fedora, CentOS or RHEL 6 you can now use my Copr repositories for the mentioned software from HashiCorp. Continue reading

Writing a general multi-provider Vagrantfile

Vagrant is a great software that allows people to use various providers, provisioners, sync options, and more. But that often comes short if we write our project’s Vagrantfile just for default VirtualBox. Since I prefer to use libvirt provider and NFS I tend to write Vagrantfile that only support those (as they are just for myself). But lately I was writing a Vagrantfile for upcoming Fedora Developer Portal and wanted to support both Fedora users running our packages with libvirt as a default provider and everyone else as well.

Running Vagrant with Docker provider without password prompts on Fedora

When you run Vagrant with Docker provider you find out that you need to prepend every command with sudo since that’s what would you do with running Docker commands directly. But chances are you don’t want to do that. In that case it’s enough to make calls to Docker commands password-less. Vagrant would then be able to use Docker without password prompts as well. To do so you just need add yourself to docker group. Here is how to do it on Fedora 22. Continue reading

Inception: running Vagrant inside Vagrant with KVM

Since I package and maintain Vagrant and vagrant-libvirt for Fedora, I have a need to test new builds. But since I run just one version of Fedora and I don’t really feel like testing it directly on my host system, I actually use Vagrant to test Vagrant. In other words I run Vagrant with KVM and inside I download the new builds and run Vagrant with KVM again. This is possible because KVM supports nested virtualization. In fact I already wrote about setting that up with virt-manager. But today I show you how to do it using Vagrant itself. Continue reading
