Running public Arch AMIs

AMI Images from Uplink Labs

Uplink Labs creates new images approximately twice a month. Images are being built for a number of regions, and cover the following configurations:

  • ebs hvm x86_64 lts
  • s3 hvm x86_64 lts
  • ebs hvm x86_64 stable
  • s3 hvm x86_64 stable

AMI links and more information are available on http://www.uplinklabs.net/projects/arch-linux-on-ec2/ .

Other AMIs

Verified working public arch linux AMIs are below

AMI          Store Build   Release     Kernel Last verified
ami-07be766e  EBS  64 bit  2011-04-15  3.0+   2012-01-14    
ami-19be7670  EBS  64 bit  2011-11-18  3.0+   2012-01-14    
ami-26e8144f  EBS  32 bit  2011-04-15  2.6    2012-01-14    
ami-38e81451  EBS  32 bit  2011-04-15  2.6    2012-01-14    

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-ec2AUR in AUR compiles the Arch linux kernel for AWS with Xen modules enabled and the XSAVE patch applied.

Aforementioned Uplink Labs webpage also has a manual on the build process.
