Optimizations and Bug FixesThis image was based on an existing FC8 AMI submitted by another member but significantly patched and enhanced, including the following changes:
Optimal File System Partition SizeMany AMIs don't have enough space on /dev/sda1 for upgrading pre-installed system modules and apps. The last thing you want to do is run 'yum update' and hit a brick wall. This image provides you with over 7G of free space on the first partition (with an additional 140G on /dev/sda2).
Amazon Xen Kernel 2.6.16 IncludedIf you plan on customizing and bundling your own image, you'll need the Amazon Xen kernel (found in /lib/modules/2.6.16-enU). Source files also included in case you need to patch anything. Warning: not all AMIs floating out there include the Xen module, which leads to an annoying error during the bundling process, "Could not find any loop device."
