    Small issues with building CentOS 5.5 64bit AMI

    shaunmcc Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I built a JEOS CentOS 5.5 64bit AMI this afternoon using Appliance boxgrinder-meta/fedora/14/1.5/x86_64

       

      Boxgrinder seem to work flawlessly but the resulting AMI can only be run on instance types m1.large and greater. I cannot choose t1.micro.

       

      When I launch the AMI I can only Terminate the instance there is no possibility to Stop the instance

       

      I'd be grateful if someone could explain what I've done wrong as I would like to be able to Stop the Instance and have the possibility to run on t1.micro type instance.

       

      TIA

       

      Shaun

       

      I exec'd this command to build the AMI              boxgrinder-build --debug centos5.appl -p ec2 -d ami

       

      Here is my .appl file

       

      name: centos5-mysql

      summary: MySQL Server

      version: 0

      release: 1

      os:
