Please help: Steps to build an Centos 6 EC2 AMI with custom kernel
*Just like to ask some questions regarding creation of Amazon AWS EC2 AMIs*based on*Centos 6 along with*centos 6 stock*kernel --*as there are no 2.6.32 or higher version Amazon AWS kernel anymore.
*My questions are:
*1, is the normal non-virtual stock centos 6.0 kernel(s) OK for use? or a xen enhanced kernel -- like centos 5' kernel-xen -- needs to be installed instead?
*2, which tool is used to create initial ramdisk? mkinitrd or dracut? and are there any special modules have to be included explicitly?
*3, can I build EC2 image in-house and then bundle&upload it to Amazon S3, or I have to build it at EC2, as most of the available documents did?
Please shed a light in this area if possible -- It will be more than glad if you have gone through all the dark forest and made an working Centos 6 EC2 AMIs with stock centos 6 kernel(s), and generous to share your glory with explorers still scrambling in the dark.
