Newer lab2 workaround

serewicz Posts: 1,000

In an effort to make the labs even smoother, this is a work-around for lab2.

# Use git to clone openstack as it shows step 2 in book. Before creation of the local.conf file complete the following steps #As ubuntu user create the directory for the repo to download into sudo mkdir -p /opt/stack/requirements #Make sure Ubuntu can write to it sudo chown -R ubuntu:ubuntu /opt/stack/ #Clone the requirements project into the newly created directory. git clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/requirements.git /opt/stack/requirements -b stable/newton #Replace the version of appdirs to already use the newest to avoid the headache. sed -i 's/appdirs===1.4.0/appdirs===1.4.3/' /opt/stack/requirements/upper-constraints.txt

Then continue on as normal with creation of local.conf and the ./stack.sh.  I have shared these steps with the infrastructure team. Hopefully the workaround can be implemented soon, allowing the labs for chapter 3 and 4 to be fixed shortly.

    Thanks for that, but wouldn't it be simpler to update the pdf, LAB_2.1.pdf instead of expecting someone to fluke finding this or report the problem to support ?

    Thanks SEREWICZ

    I was having difficulty getting BUI - I could only see the apache welcome screen - the workaround you suggested helped me to get the project running successfully.
