I have built an image with SUSEStudio (http://susestudio.com/a/y1G68N/thisnext-basicserver). I have gone through several different images and this one I am several revisons in... I started by selecting an openSUSE 12.1 server image... I would not boot on EC2 so I replaced the standard kernel with the Amazon ec2 kernel. The image is still not booting once I get the AMI uploaded to EC2 the instance just says "initializing" and never boots. I don't know if this is an issue with Studio or my image. I have also posted this in the "forums"/mailinglist at susestudio.com. I hope to get some help with this soon.
