Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. There’s a new release every week. Here are the highlights from this weeks 0.103 release.
Upload each Release to an Ubuntu PPA
Each weekly release of Cockpit is now uploaded to an Ubuntu PPA. Here’s how to make use of it:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cockpit-project/cockpit sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cockpit
Kubernetes Connection Configuration
When a Kubernetes client wants to access the API of the cluster, it looks for a “kubeconfig” file to tell it how to find the cluster and how to authenticate when accessing the API. The usual location for this file is in the current user’s home directory at the
~/.kube/config file path. If that doesn’t exist, then usually the cluster isn’t available. This applies to both clients like the
kubectl command as well as Cockpit’s cluster dashboard.
Cockpit can now prompt for this information, and build this file for you. If it doesn’t exist, then there’s a helpful “Troubleshoot” button to help get this configuration in place.
