    CentOS 5 / grub / EC2

    pchambers Newbie

      I'm trying to build with CentOS 5 on EC2 and get the following.  I'm guessing /sysroot/boot not existing is related to grub not liking /dev/loop3.  Beyond that I have no idea.  Suggestions or workarounds?

          Hi,

           

          Our latest (and supported) BoxGrinder Build releases are only verified on Fedora 14+ at present. You can still build a CentOS appliance using a Fedora host in the same manner, so there are no limitations in that regard.
