The LibreTime Vagrant install is the fastet way to get LibreTime up and running in a way to hack on its source code or to test it locally. There are two supported providers: libvirt and VirtualBox.
vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest
Setting the libvirt provider up on (Ubuntu and Debian)[#Ubuntu and Debian] is straight forward, using the distribution provided packages. While on (Other Distributions)[#Other Distributions] it can be built from within vagrant.
If you try run a libvirt provided box after using a VirtualBox one, you will receive an error:
Error while activating network: Call to virNetworkCreate failed: internal error: Network is already in use by interface vboxnet0.
This is fixed by stopping virtualbox and re-creating the vagrant box:
sudo systemctl stop virtualbox vagrant destroy ubuntu-xenial vagrant up ubuntu-xenial --provider=libvirt
Debian and Ubuntu
sudo apt install vagrant vagrant-libvirt libvirt-daemon-system vagrant-mutate libvirt-dev sudo usermod -a -G libvirt $USER # Reboot vagrant box add bento/ubuntu-16.04 --provider=virtualbox vagrant mutate bento/ubuntu-16.04 libvirt vagrant up ubuntu-xenial --provider=libvirt
You will need to install libvirt and
vagrant-mutate and then run
vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt sudo usermod -a -G libvirt $USER # Reboot vagrant plugin install vagrant-mutate vagrant box fetch bento/ubuntu-16.04 vagrant mutate bento/ubuntu-16.04 libvirt vagrant up ubuntu-xenial --provider=libvirt
Starting LibreTime Vagrant
To get started you clone the repo and run
vagrant up. The command accepts a parameter to
change the default provider if you have multiple installed. This can be done by appending
--provider=libvirt as applicable.
git clone https://github.com/libretime/libretime.git cd libretime vagrant up ubuntu-xenial
Once you reach the web setup GUI you can click through it using the default values. To
connect to the vagrant machine you can run
vagrant ssh ubuntu-xenial in the libretime
Alternative OS installations
With the above instructions LibreTime is installed on Ubuntu Xenial Xerus. The Vagrant setup offers the option to choose a different operation system according to you needs.
||Install on Debian Buster.|
||Install on current Debian Stretch.|
||Experimental install on current Ubuntu Bionic Beaver.|
||Install on Ubuntu Xenial Xerus.|
||Extremely experimental install on 7.3 with native systemd support and activated SELinux. Needs manual intervention due to Liquidsoap 1.3.3.|
If anything fails during the initial provisioning step you can try running
to rerun the installer.
If you only want to re-run parts of the installer, use
--provision-with install. The
supported steps are
