Puppet Agent

Due to the following packaging bugs PA-2670 and FACT-1918 installing on the Puppet agent requires renaming a few files.

You can run the following script to auto-fix for both of these issues.

Failure to do this step will show an attempt to overwrite existing executables.

facter's executable "facter" conflicts with /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/facter

Run this script on a Puppet agent installation:

cd /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/lib/ruby/gems/*/specifications
mv hiera.gemspec hiera-$(hiera -v).gemspec
mv puppet.gemspec puppet-$(puppet --version).gemspec
if [[ $(facter kernel) == 'Darwin' ]]; then
  facter_version=$(facter --version | grep -Eo '\d\.\d{1,2}\.\d')
else
  facter_version=$(facter --version | grep -Po '\d\.\d{1,2}\.\d')
fi
sed -i s/2.1.7/2.1/ facter.gemspec
mv facter.gemspec facter-${facter_version}.gemspec

Once complete, run the gem command to install the debugger on your Puppet agent.

sudo /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/gem install puppet-debugger --no-ri --no-rdoc

Or if you wish to install in user space:

/opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/gem install puppet-debugger --no-ri --no-rdoc --user-install

If you see this warning, make sure you add the specified path to your path variable.
