Boxen uses file-locking to ensure it's only running once. This doesn't work with the default VMWare file-sync mechanism.
This is why we use NFS, but that has a different caveat - each time you run
Vagrant will try to modify
/etc/exports on your host machine, which will by default require your sudo password.
A workaround could be allowing write for all admins on that system & restarting nfsd without password:
# This is due to pesky sed - see https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant/pull/5259 sudo chown root:admin /etc sudo chmod g+w /etc sudo chown root:admin /etc/exports sudo chmod g+w /etc/exports echo "%admin ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /sbin/nfsd" >> /etc/sudoers
while having Vagrant
Just a pure OSX with no extra mountpoints/provisioners, works out of the box.
vagrant up base
./our-boxen directory in the root, Vagrant will mount it & install accordingly.
Available ENV variables:
GH_TOKEN- Github token for Boxen
UNLOCK_BOXEN(empty or 1) - whether to unlock boxen (sometimes necessary when you kill the instance in mid-flight)
NO_PULL(empty or 1) - whether to pull down latest version of mounted
vagrant up boxen
This will install latest Homebrew + Brewcask, turn Brewcask into DEV mode and mount any directories named as
homebrew-* as taps into the VM.
vagrant up brew
vagrant ssh brew brew install vagrant/homebrew-mytap/package-name
