Ansible (Red Hat) – 5.18.2019

Today, I’m installing Ansible on my Mac…

For Mac, you need to install pip, which is done by following the instructions provided by Ansible, which didn’t work for me, so I found an easier command:

$ sudo easy_install pip

With that command, I was able to make it to the next phase… which didn’t work. At this point, I was very frustrated! After deciding to read all of the instructions on Ansible, I found a paragraph regarding MacOS 10.9 . Well, I was running 10.14. It obviously inherited its bitchiness from 10.9. So, I ran the command:

$ CFLAGS=-Qunused-arguments CPPFLAGS=-Qunused-arguments pip install --user ansible

All problems were solved. At this point, I’m considering a degree in Linux based systems so that I can actually understand this shit. But no, I’m going to continue my path toward the #CCIE and #CCAr!
