Pushed some updates to my proxmox packer project at https://github.com/dustinrue/proxmox-packer. The updates include effort to support Packer 1.9.2 and the most recent Proxmox plugin. The makefile has been updated to run the necessary init command to get the Proxmox plugin installed as well.

More importantly, the changes fix an issue that prevented the provisioner from running leading to broken or missing cloud-init support in the resulting templates.

A while back I took the time to learn a bit of OpenStack’s Disk Image Builder. Recently I decided to give Packer a try to build templates for Proxmox and I decided to release the results as a Github repo. You can find the repo at https://github.com/dustinrue/proxmox-packer. The project allows you to build a mostly empty CentOS 7 or CentOS 8 template for Proxmox. You can further customize the image by expanding the provisioner section of the packer.json files.
