I am on to creating a new AMI image for CentOS 6.4. Until now I was on CentOS 5.6. I started with the CentOS market place image, and what I noticed is that it is running a regular kernel and not xen kernel, unlike my CentOS 5.6 image.
I am trying to answer following questions to my self. - Does EC2 need a xen-enabled kernel at all? Some of the AWS document I read says that run your own kernel using pvgrub. But my assumptions was that even if I boot using pvgrub, I need xen enabled kernel? - Does CentOS 6.4 kernel, kernel-2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64, is compiled with xen functionality? - Or pvgrub is doing some magic? I really doubt this, because as far as I understand pvgrub will boot the actual kernel image and handover control to main kernel?
