I've been struggling for days to get AWX installed both on your Ansible appliance and on RHEL and CentOS servers. Would you consider adding Awx to your Ansible appliance?


Kind regards.

Hi Mike. Thanks for your feature request. I've added it to our issue tracker (on GitHub) so it doesn't get forgotten. TBH, I'm not sure when we'll get the next update released as we're currently working on the transition from TurnKey v15.x (based on Debian 9/Stretch) to v16.0 (based on Debian 10/Buster).

I'm no super expert on these things, but I have installed a few Django apps in my time, so if you'd like to share a bit more info on the issues you're hitting when trying to install on TurnKey, then perhaps I can provide some assistance? Or at least an understanding of why something may not be working as expected...

I will make the attempt once again and see if I can provide some feedback. I suspect the issue is two-fold.

I'm running in a lab environment and need to use a web proxy. It seems that just about every Linux app needs it own proxy configuration setting to work.

2. There currently appears to be some Python Pip issues causing docker-compose installs to fail.

Hope to give better feedback after my second attempt.

I have it working. I needed to create a proxy configuration setting for Docker. The proxy settings in the AWX playbook seem to be there for decorative purposes.

Glad to hear that you worked it out! And thanks for posting back with some more info. Hopefully that might help someone else who is having similar issues.

One thing I wish the appliance configuration console would do is to propogate the proxy settings to all those pesky configuration files instead of just the apt config file.


Kind regards.

Great suggestion. I suspect that the devil will be in the implementation detail, but it's a great idea. I have no idea when we might be able to include it, but I've added this one to the issue tracker too.

Just to make sure I'm clear, you mean like for pip and docker right (as per the tools I've noted on the issue)? Or am I misunderstanding something?

Every utility seems to want proxy settings in a special place or special format. Adding the proxy setting in the /etc/environment config file would be a great place to start. Many utilities will use that.


Kind regards,
