I would like to know why my question isn't constructive, is it the way I worded my question? Did I forget details I should have added? Or is it something else I did wrong? Thank you for your time and consideration.
From the looks of it, the question there was either, "How do I build an Arch Linux AMI from scratch," or, "where can I find an Arch Linux AMI?". The former is far too complicated for a single answer since there are a lot of variable we don't have. The later is a product recommendation question which we don't do.
Building an AMI of anything is a lot like building a server from scratch, just with a nice Amazon flavor to it. Such images are highly customized, which makes it hard for us to really help you.
An alternate question may be:
What is the base process for building an Arch AMI? Once I know to make one at all, I can customize the packages I need; I just need the first few steps.
Sprinkling the words "technical requirements" and "official specification" in that sort of alternate question would likely help it sound Professional too.– Chris SJan 28, 2012 at 3:58
