New releases of Ubuntu base install AMIs for Amazon EC2 2008-04-03

The ec2ubuntu-build-ami script has been enhanced and is now hosted on Google Code:

The build script has the following enhancements:

  • Updated patches for the latest version of the AMI tools (1.3-20041 20071010).

  • Switch from “uname -i” to “uname -m” to enable building on Ubuntu 64- bit (not tested).

  • Support for 32- and 64-bit AMIs for all Ubuntu releases from Dapper to Gutsy.

New Ubuntu base install AMIs have been released for the all versions listed on:

This includes the previous Feisty and Gutsy AMIs, but also adds Dapper and Edgy AMIs just because we can (no public AMI documents published yet).

Note: The S3 buckets for the new AMI manifests have changed from:

  • level22-ec2-images
  • level22-ec2-images-64


  • alestic
  • alestic-64

Let me know if you have any problems with the new build script or AMIs.
