I am trying to upgrade an AWS EC2 f16 to f17 following these
I start with AMI: ami-0316d86a as listed here:
The instructions describe:
"Change the following kernel commandline parameter directly in the
bootloader menu, which
is shown during bootup, or edit the line in /etc/grub*.cfg to remove ro
and rhgb and append rw
However /etc/grub*.cfg is empty:
[root@domU-12-31-39-04-F1-72 etc]# file /etc/grub2.cfg
/etc/grub2.cfg: symbolic link to `../boot/grub2/grub.cfg'
[root@domU-12-31-39-04-F1-72 etc]# file ../boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Am I doing something wrong?
How can one get a f17 EC2 instance?
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.
I just setup a F16 EC2 using that same AMI, so I thought I'd chime in.
This is the page you need.
In a nutshell, you launch that AMI and select the PV-GRUB kernel image.
Most likely this one:
Then, you can uninstall grub if you like... the only file you need at
this point is /boot/grub/menu.lst, which you'll have to manually update
whenever you update the kernel.
