First congratulations on a great setup to allow us clueless ones to pick
an ec2 image and launch it directly into the region of our choice.
But...when you do it you get to a dialog where you can choose the kernel
to use. The drop down list includes default and a number of AKI's
(Amazon Kernel Images??) . How do you find out what the AKI's refer to
in Fedora speak, i.e. kernel-3.10.10-100.fc18.x86_64 ?? I googled some
of the aki's , but found nothing.
Also, since the F19 ec2 instance only has one partition:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1 2032912 1088744 907784 55% /
devtmpfs 280236 0 280236 0% /dev
tmpfs 302208 0 302208 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 302208 188 302020 1% /run
tmpfs 302208 0 302208 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
we should use an hd0 ( and not hd00 ) aki, correct?
But now I have an F19 instance running. Will I need to do some magic to
upgrade the kernel, or is yum upgrade sufficient?
