Hi @otlet,

Any update on updating the package?

Hi @otlet,

I have flagged the package as out of date.

There is a latest version release 23.5.1040 which resolves the chef env --chef-license accept that I raised with Chef Progress.

For what it's worth, the solution seems to be:

/opt/chef-workstation/embedded/bin/gem install ruby-shadow

That seems to be a bug in the chef-workstation release.

You can add this bug the the chef-workstation issues at the below link

You must have ruby-shadow installed for password support!

I get the following error when trying to run the latest version and do anything with a user block. I have ruby-shadow installed (with pacman).

Thank you for the speedy action and response, much appreciated. I will definitely keep in mind to mark it is at Out-of-date going forward.

Hi @b1tem3!

Thanks for letting me know :)

I made an update to the package.

In a situation where I have not updated the package for some reason, you can mark the package as Out-of-date - I will then get a notification that someone has noticed such a situation.

Hi, Sorry I am new to Arch Linux and require the chef workstation package to be updated in the AUR repo.

Can you please update it to the latest version below, or is there a way I can do? If there are readme notes on how to update packages I really dont mind doing this.

Chef has released an latest version of Chef-Workstation. I require this as there is a bug fix that I need fixed on my local machine.

Version = 23.4.1032 Source =
