Arch Linux AMIs for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Running public Arch AMIs

Verified working public arch liunx 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.

Notes

{note:title=Be Careful} (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. {note}

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