RHEL Vagrant base box plus additions!
These days I have a low bandwidth connection, so each bit I could save saves time! This is especially true for the Vagrant based stuff I do at the moment: I rebuild base boxes from time to time, and I install lots of additional software into that boxes. To save a few bits on the wire I would like to put more software into the Vagrant base box so that it must not be installed in during Vagrant provision phase. Using the vagrant-builder enables us to do that easily. If you take a look [around line 214] of the Makefile, you will see that vagrant-builder installes all additional packages listed in the variable PACKAGES. PACKAGES could be configured on line 65 of the Makefile by simply putting something in like “
sosreport telnet“. After that, just rebuild your Vagrant base box and save time!
