OK so I took some time to understand and hack amazon linux 1 and. based on
the docker container I created a kvm guest VM build node.

I could have used the docker container but I like a static VM much more.


The result packages are at:



which have packages for both amzn 1 and 2 and for both 3.5.27 and 4.0.24.


While working on the VM and the SPEC files I noticed that there was a typo
in all of my older versions until today.

For some reason despite to the typo Squid was built and ran fine in
production for a long time.

I was unsure if to patch 3.5.27 with the latest 2018.03 patch. but since I
worked on the different SPEC files I assume that in the next couple weeks I
will release 3.5.27+patches.

.If there will be another release as 3.5.28 I will not create a specially
patched RPM release.


The AMI RPM build sources(else then the SRPMS at the repo) are at:







And the amzn1 3.5.27 has SRPM:



Which should be enough for any AWS developer that works with AMI 1 or 2.


The AMI amzn1 qcow2 image is available at:



just add "faster." To the domain and it should push the packets faster.

AMI machines are based on a combination of stability and cutting edge so
amzn1 is pretty solid.

However amzn2 offers systemd which I recommend to plan to use if you don't

I also noticed that there are couple tiny things which blocks amzn2 LTS
moving from the RC state of it but compared to Ubuntu I think it get's more
development and upgrades.

It's probably because globally there is more money opportunity in it..


OK this is it for today.
