As I understand it, there's no grub in the ec2 instances
grub2 was not happy with the xen paravirtualized devices. And also
it's not necessary.
Our instructions for OpenStack here
have a little script for injecting syslinux as a bootloader so the
images work with openstack.
A notable drawback is that kernel updates don't actually take effect
without manual intervention. Plus, of course, if we don't start doing
this ourselves, it means an extra annoying step for everyone.
It looks to me that more recent grub2 is patched to deal with the
situation -- see
in current grub-2.00/util/getroot.c.
Is there anything I'm missing here, and, what's the best way forward?
(Grub in everything? Grub in images on mirrors, skip it in ec2?)
I was planning to look at hvm images for f18 which would require grub2
