Ryan,

chef-solo is cool, but it could be quite involving when your need is pretty simple.

With Sunzi, installing git-core on Linode is about 5 commands:

$ sunzi create
$ cd sunzi
$ sunzi setup linode
$ echo "apt-get -y install git-core" >> install.sh
$ sunzi deploy yourhost.com

Could you try that out? :)

Ryan,

I wrote a very simple provisioning tool to help people setup a new instance on VPS. It has a bonus feature to setup / teardown Linode instances interactively, by choosing plans and datacenters, etc.

I hope this helps to anyone who scratched their head dealing with chef / chef-solo!
