Running public Arch AMIs

Archlinux AMI

64 bit AMI with stock kernel and enabled Xen modules is available https://aws.amazon.com/amis/archlinux

Other AMIs

Verified working public arch liunx AMIs are below

AMI          Store Build   Release     Kernel Last verified

These AMIs ship with Arch linux kernels that are booted by PV-GRUB.

(2012-01-14) The 64 bit AMIs consistently failed to boot on Micro instances in us-east-1a and us-east-1d. In us-east-1b and us-east-1c the AMIs occasionally fail to boot. Stop and start the instance to reassign it a random machine in these cases.

This may be an issue with Amazon running different versions of Xen on different machines / older availability zones.

Building Arch AMIs

linux-ec2 in AUR compiles the Arch linux kernel for AWS with Xen modules enabled and the XSAVE patch applied.
