I have run into a issue with installing a package in my puppet module.

Required = for example does not seem to work, but other packages without the "." does work. Is their anyone workaround/fix for this?

Ensure your resource declaration looks like this:

package { 'my_nice_web_package_resource':
  name   => 'webservice-1.4.8',
  ensure => present,

The package name should stay in a single-quoted string.
