Re: curl vs wget to download stemcells

Wayne E. Seguin

What you want is the *hvm* ones if you are going for the full size stemcell
vs a reference to a pre-existing AMI

curl -sOL

Notice the -hvm- in the file name.

All that said, did I see somewhere that the full stemcells are being
depreciated in preference for the light stemcells on AWS? eg. Does that
mean that only light will be available/generated from some point forward?

I am experiencing something a bit unexpected when I try to download the
AWS stemcells with wget and curl.

I'm trying to download the latest version, so for curl I enter:

curl -L -J -O

For wget I enter:

wget --content-disposition --no-check-certificate

For curl I get a file named:

For wget I get a file named:

In both cases the file is about 6.2KB, so it looks like I am actually
getting the *light* stemcell both times, even though that's not the URL I'm

Is this behavior expected? How would I use curl/wget to download the full
stemcell since there's no separate URL?
