In Lucid Lynx (10.04 LTS) I used linux-image-ec2 package which is not available any more. I need a package containing those files (or newer)

  • vmlinuz-2.6.32-345-ec2
  • initrd.img-2.6.32-345-ec2

Using those images for xen based virtual hosts with pygrub.

Not so sure about it. As I already wrote in the comment for your post which you probably deleted. I need an ubuntu package which can be installed with apt-get install and create the files mentioned above in the /boot directory. – Jurgis May 10 '12 at 15:39
Why apt-get? And I can tell you you are not going to get deb files for these since they have not been created since natty. ;) – Rinzwind May 10 '12 at 17:05
I did not know that those packages are not created any more. Maybe therefore I could not locate them in the first place. I just do not feel comfortable because there is no versioning information for those files. But I will try them out later and let you know if it worked or not. Thank you for the help! – Jurgis May 10 '12 at 20:27
Unfortunately it is not what I need but pretty close. It is a kernel for installer. I could boot it and it started asking installation related questions. I have already set up everything so I need something else. – Jurgis May 15 '12 at 19:09
