Hello all. New maintainer here. I updated the package, the license, and fixed the requirement. I'll look at the remaining metadata and at picking the ideal upstream source in future releases.

I had some issues recently while running the knife command /opt/chef-workstation/embedded/bin/ruby: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I had to install libxcrypt-compat from AUR to fix it

In case this wasn't an isolated issue on my machine, it should be added as a dependency (I'm running version 21.12.720 now)

The patch supplied by MattRay to fix the chef-cli issue has been included in yesterday's release of 21.1.222

Just installed version 20.12.205-1 and I also got the chef-cli not found issue.

Could solve it by adding the symlink as proposed below.

The 20.12.187 release fixes the missing chef-cli

Installed 0.17.5-1 and still had to do sudo ln -sf /opt/chef-workstation/bin/chef-cli /usr/bin/chef-cli

So problem still there

Just installed version 0.14.16-1. Unfortunately issue with missing link still there. Fix is same as for version 0.12.20-1.

Version 0.12.20-1 gives an error executing:

>chef -v
ERROR: exec: "chef-cli": executable file not found in $PATH

sudo ln -sf /opt/chef-workstation/bin/chef-cli /ur/bin/chef-cli
