|Summary||0016614: No Centos 8 AMIs|
|Description||I'd like to request Centos 8 AMI images. You currently provide them for Centos 6 and 7, but not 8:|
The ZFS on Linux project uses Centos AMIs for our automated testing. We currently can't release Centos 8 ZFS RPMs, since we have no way to test them without the AMIs:
|We really need to get this resolved asap....is there a way that I can assist building the image?|
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 AMI was built by Amazon Web Services. They have been available since July 2019.
CentOS.org has built the previous official AMI.
I am assuming it is not a technical issue to build a certified AMI, but one of priority.
|So where should the request be made for a Centos ami? I am not interested in the RH ami's|
This is in the Cloud Instance SIG purview - https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/CloudInstance
There's a kickstart file for a generic CentOS 8 cloud image in this pull request:
There's also an outstanding pull request for an Azure image kickstart file for CentOS 8
I'm sure they would be happy to accept changes to build an AMI, should someone create one.
I tried to https://github.com/CentOS/sig-cloud-instance-build/pull/159/commits/2c542bb2b1bc54c007fbf57a5da0a3213ce73fbb (and turned off BLS) and when attempting to import to AWS (amazon-import), it fails with
Unsupported kernel version 4.18.0-80.el8.x86_64
Any way to fix this?
I got the same error....it's a bit funny since I installed a RH 8.0 in AWS which is running the same kernel version the only difference is that the RH kernel is tagged with RH in the end.
I ended up following this article https://weldr.io/Pushing-Images-to-AWS/ which works really well.
|If you made a CentOS 8 image and uploaded it to AWS via https://weldr.io/Pushing-Images-to-AWS/, I will try it out. Thanks|
|It works just make sure that you get both cloud-init.noarch and cloud-utils-growpart.noarch installed without cloud-utils-growpart.noarch changing the EBS disk size wont be discovered by Centos.|
