I’ve started to make some changes to the Cobbler tree to enable it to run on other linux distros than the RedHat family.
First up, Ubuntu Lucid!
Install the required packages:
aptitude install python-yaml python-cheetah python-netaddr python-urlgrabber
Get the source code from my git tree:
git clone git://github.com/proffalken/cobbler.git
change to the new directory and run the setup as root:
cd cobbler python setup.py install
and there we are, Cobbler should now be running on your server!
There are some discrepancies and it’s not working 100% yet but it will install and run.
I’ll post some more information on getting the web interface up and running in the coming hours/days/weeks as I find the time! 🙂
Hi. This is great! Have you worked on getting these submitted to the Cobbler folks?
I’ve put it into my fork on GitHub, but I’ve not requested a merge yet as I’d like to find an easier way to manage this instead of an ugly hard-hack.
I’ve not had time to work on it recently, however I hope to be able to look at this again shortly.
