coreos-cloudinit not found. Could not validate config.

02 Jul

When Installing coreos, this is a common problem depending on the ‘live CD’ used:

./ -d /dev/sdb -C stable -c ~/cloud-config.yaml
./ coreos-cloudinit not found. Could not validate config. Continuing...\

All manner of ‘solutions’ appear on the internet, actually it is simply stating that ‘coreos-cloudinit’
is missing.

The reason being that the so called install scripts are actually not fully integrated.

Simply following the instructions at :

will ONLY work IF you use a liveCD that contains ‘coreos-cloudinit’

Get in the prerequisites first:

1. Build your cloud-config.yaml BUT validate it first at:

Then ensure that you perform the following BEFORE attempting the installation

your working directory:
cd coreos-cloudinit-master/
cd bin
#ensure you put the binary on a path where it can be found
cp coreos-cloudinit /usr/bin/coreos-cloudinit

Then cd back to your original working directory where you have: (or whatever you called it)

./ -d /dev/sdb -C stable -c ~/cloud-config.yaml

Success! CoreOS stable current is installed on /dev/sdb

She works hard for the money…. OpenERP CentOS 6.2 Python 2.7.3

21 Apr

Well almost…
Todays time wasting job was OpenERP, not least of which was due to the piss-poor installer, dodgy language (Python… if you want to see libraries done properly see Pearl) and the poor instruction and installation guides provided by OpenERP. (I don’t think I have seen such worthless documentation since the Jasper reports-‘Ultimate’ guide series)
Seriously if you’re going to charge 50 bucks for an ‘ultimate’ guide, then I expect to see such tips as having a two column report broken down into ‘Day’ & ‘Night’, where ‘Night’ always prints on the right even when the’Day’ column is missing. Not some trash about how to position sub-reports on a report page.
