20:29 semiosis https://firstlook.org/theintercept/
20:46 joshu hi semiosis
20:46 semiosis o/
20:56 joshu IIRC you use AWS
20:57 * semiosis does
20:59 joshu have you ever downloaded an EBS volume locally or copied the data on an EBS volume to your local comp
20:59 semiosis not exactly.  why?
21:00 semiosis i mean, does it matter if it was my local computer?
21:00 joshu I'm trying to find out if and how to do it
21:00 joshu I want to launch a marketplace AMI EBS instance and examine the contents of the EBS volume
21:01 semiosis joshu: attach the ebs volume to another instance, then you can do whatever you want with it... rsync it, dd it, ...
21:01 semiosis i would just do all the work on the other instance though
21:01 joshu semiosis that easy..I thought I had to copy the ebs volume locally and then extract or mount the data.
21:01 joshu ok
21:02 joshu I will do some googling on using dd as I haven't before
21:02 semiosis forget dd
21:02 semiosis launch the marketplace ami, stop the instance, force-detach the ebs vol(s)
21:02 semiosis now you have 'available' ebs vols you can attach to another instance
21:02 joshu with you so far
21:03 semiosis launch your favorite plain old linux instance (gotta be ubuntu, AMIRITE?!?!) and attach the ebs vols to it
21:03 semiosis then you can mount them & do whatever you want
21:03 joshu hehe ubuntu all the way..all I've used ;)
21:04 semiosis woo
21:04 joshu ok once I've mounted the ebs volume to the ubuntu instance..what would you use to copy the whole contents so I can investigate it closer locally?
21:04 semiosis i'd caution you against reading other people's proprietary code though.  that can be bad
21:05 semiosis idk what you're up to with this marketplace ami, and i dont want to know... but dont be evil :)
21:05 joshu semiosis I'm not going to do anything illegal. Really. I'm trying to help an open source project creat an AMI from scratch using the "free" community version of that AMI
21:06 joshu we are trying to understand HOW to build an AMI based on debian with squashfs union filesystem thingy I don't understand
21:09 semiosis sounds complicated.  good luck with that
21:29 joshu semiosis thanks
