Here is a diff for upgrading to 1.1.16 that I used recently, it also addresses (hopefully correctly) the issue with broken symlinks. YMMV, correct as necessary... N.B. I used the deb from 14.04 from the chef downloads site as I was about to create an ubuntu vagrant image using 14.04... otherwise I have no reason to use that particular deb. I assume they are the same, but maybe they aren't, I didn't look.

@czk quick look, looks like this is a upstream issue. If anyone has a quick fix thhough I'll gladly make the change.

I noticed 2 broken symlinks - /usr/bin/chef-zero and /usr/bin/fauxhai. Can you fix that?:

# ls -l /usr/bin/chef-zero
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Dec 9 18:16 /usr/bin/chef-zero -> /opt/chefdk/bin/chef-zero
# ls -l /opt/chefdk/bin/chef-zero
ls: cannot access '/opt/chefdk/bin/chef-zero': No such file or directory

# ls -l /usr/bin/fauxhai
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Dec 9 18:16 /usr/bin/fauxhai -> /opt/chefdk/bin/fauxhai
# ls -l /opt/chefdk/bin/fauxhai
ls: cannot access '/opt/chefdk/bin/fauxhai': No such file or directory

Is that a packaging error or rather an upstream issue?

@automaticgiant It seems that stripping just takes a very very long time. I'm not sure why (too many files causing some unexpected quadratic behavior?), but a lot of time is spent in the `while read -r filename; do ... done < <(find "$pkgdir" -type f -perm -u+x)` loop in makepkg. I waited a while and it eventually did finish.

@Maximka I'll happily take it over.

Maximka commented on 2016-09-23 09:57

Could someone take control over the package? because of problems with my laptop I do not use archlinux now.

Maximka commented on 2016-08-08 20:10

Yes, agree with you vasya, force doesn't make any sense, I've used the line from the code written by "Chef Software, Inc.". Will change on the next release.

vasya commented on 2016-08-08 10:43

Hi! Sorry, can I ask a small question? Why is `ln -sf` used? Should it better be `ln -s` (without --force)? Since it is(should) be a new directory, `ln -s` should work. Otherwise it feels like an error to me (so it's OK to throw an error).

Maximka commented on 2016-05-30 13:10

yes you are right. fixing...

Hi, do you forget 'delivery' in $binaries?
