Dowd and Associates is offering Pygoscelis Papua Linux. Pygoscelis Papua Linux is an unofficial build of Gentoo Linux for Amazon EC2.

Pygoscelis Papua Linux is the successor to our Gentoo in the Cloud images. The key difference between the two is the root device is partitioned; this was done so we could have HVM images.

Starting in September 2016, we are using a 3 month rolling wave for the AMIs, keeping the two most recent builds; see that announcement for more. Starting in January 2015, we ceased building the 32-bit images, see that announcement for more.

If you have the EC2 command line tools installed, you can start an instance like so:

Console - user@hostname ~ $

1
aws --region us-east-1 ec2 run-instances --image-id "" --key-name "key-name"

The username to login is ec2-user. To connect to the instance you would do:

Console - user@hostname ~ $

1
ssh -i $HOME/.ssh/key-name.pem ec2-user@ec2-1-2-3-4.compute-1.amazonaws.com
