I'm trying to install CLSI on ubuntu 11.10 using chef (see: https://github.com/scribtex/clsi-chef).

I'm trying to get a CLSI server up and running but I'm not able to :( Getting:

Error executing action `install` on resource 'package[libreadline5-dev]'

libreadline5-dev has no candidate in the apt-cache

Resource Declaration:
# In /var/chef/cookbooks/nginx-passenger/recipes/default.rb

 15: package "libreadline5-dev"
 16: package "build-essential"

Compiled Resource:
# Declared in /var/chef/cookbooks/nginx-passenger/recipes/default.rb:15:in `from_file'

package("libreadline5-dev") do
  recipe_name "default"
  retry_delay 2
  cookbook_name :"nginx-passenger"
  retries 0
  action :install
  package_name "libreadline5-dev"

Is anyone able to successfully install it?

I have added nginx-passenger in clsi.json so the line looks:

"run_list" : [ "mysql::server", "mysql::client", "nginx-passenger", "clsi" ]

This looks off-topic to me: would migration to AskUbuntu make sense? – Joseph Wright Nov 14 '12 at 17:59
