About this AMI

  • Published by marcin the cool).
  • A very Lite Base Fedora Core 6 image.
  • Using the yum to install a very basic usable FC6 install. The actual image size is quite small (19parts) so it boots really quickly. Great for starting a family.
  • This image contains the following daemons / services:
    • openssh server (sshd)
    • Syslog
    • Anacron
    • Crond
    • ... that is pretty much all of it.

What's New?

The following changes were made on 13 Dec 2006.
  • Version 1.0
     - First public release. Use as you like.


Top notch Core 6 base
Excellent! Works like a charm, especially with the other thoughts/comments/tweaks people have commented on. Now I'm just crossing my fingers that someone else will come up with a Core 7 image that is as good.

Minor issue with terminals
Firstly, I am no linux guru - talented amateur maybe ;-). When I installed Gnome desktop and tried to run any kind of terminal window, I would get an error about it being unable to start the child process. I found that adding a line to my /etc/fstab: none /dev/pts devpts defaults 0 0 fixed the issue.

Nice, clean base image!
This is a great base image, as advertised. If you're looking for something that's ready to run, this is not the one. If you're looking for a quick starting point, this should do just fine. As of 8 Jan 2006, it was behind on a few updates. Before you do anything else, you might want to: yum update Then, as the previous poster mentions, you probably want to add some core utilities: yum install wget nano tar bzip2 unzip zip fileutils Next, install the AMI tools (borrowed from previous poster as well, with minor changes--ruby and rsync are required but not present on the image): yum -y install ruby rsync wget http://s3.amazonaws.com/ec2-downloads/ec2-ami-tools.noarch.rpm rpm -i ec2-ami-tools.noarch.rpm You're off to the races. Rejoice.

I love this Fedora Core bare installation
I love this Fedora Core 6 bare installation. it boots up fast. but be warned it does not have any editor, archive tools and also does not have Amazon AMI packaging tools run the following commands, to get those. yum install wget nano tar bzip2 unzip zip fileutils wget http://s3.amazonaws.com/ec2-downloads/ec2-ami-tools.noarch.rpm rpm -i ec2-ami-tools.noarch.rpm the good thing on using Fedora core 4 is I was able to install latest stable versions of applications via yum itself, it used to be a big task to take care of dependency on fedora core 4 and most of those had to be installed from source. regards Senthil Nayagam http://senthilnayagam.com
