    i386 ec2 build on x86_64 installs x86_64 kernel

    sean darcy Newbie

      I'm trying to build an i386 ec2 image on fedora 17 x86_64. It's not going well. The x86_64 kernel is installed.

       

      Maybe the problem in that the arch is not passed to supermin in host_cpu??

       

      .appl:

       

      name: f17-i386

      summary: Just Enough Operating System based on Fedora 17

      os:

         name: fedora

         version: 17

      hardware:

         partitions:     "/":

             size: 2

      default_repos: false # default is true

      repos:

         - name: "fedora"

           mirrorlist: "http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=fedora-17&arch=i386"

         - name: "fedora-17-updates"

           mirrorlist: "http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=updates-released-f17&arch=i386"

      packages:

         - @core

         - kernel-PAE

       

      I've set default_repos to false, since I only want the i386 repos.

       

      But when I create the appliance, boxgrinder/supermin installs the x86_64 kernel and modules:

       

      setarch i386 boxgrinder-build f17-i386.appl -p ec2 -d local --force
