Synopsis

Configure various aspects of Linux kernel (modules etc.).

This module implements the following elements:

  • Puppet classes:

    • kernel
    • kernel::common
    • kernel::common::debian
    • kernel::common::redhat
    • kernel::params
  • Puppet definitions:

    • kernel::module

All these components are configured through a set of variables you will find in manifests/params.pp.

Note: the various operations that can be conducted from this repository are piloted from a Rakefile and assumes you have a running Ruby installation. See docs/contributing.md for more details on the steps you shall follow to have this Rakefile working properly.

Dependencies

See metadata.json. In particular, this module depends on

Overview and Usage

Class kernel

The definition kernel::module provides ... This definition accepts the following parameters:

  • $ensure: default to 'present', can be 'absent'
  • $content: specify the contents of the directive as a string
  • $source: copy a file as the content of the directive.

Example:

    kernel::module { 'toto':
          ensure => 'present',
    }

Librarian-Puppet / R10K Setup

You can of course configure the kernel module in your Puppetfile to make it available with Librarian puppet or r10k by adding the following entry:

 # Modules from the Puppet Forge
 mod "ULHPC/kernel"

or, if you prefer to work on the git version:

 mod "ULHPC/kernel", 
     :git => 'https://github.com/ULHPC/puppet-kernel',
     :ref => 'production'
