Unofficial snapd repositories for Amazon Linux

We are working on consolidating the build and hosting of the unofficial repositories for Amazon Linux. For now all the changes are available in repository. The respective package repositories are hosted directly on GitHub and updated on every commit to that repository. We plan to move the repository to the snapcore organization on GitHub. Updated will be posted when this happens.

See the instructions below for installation steps on your system.

Amazon Linux 2023

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/snapd.repo \
dnf install snapd -y

Amazon Linux 2

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/snapd.repo \
yum install snapd -y
systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

On Amazon Linux 2 the package installs with all services disabled by default.


Note that the packages are not rebuilt automatically whenever Amazon Linux’s own repositories change, but it is our understanding that AL team tries to keep the binary compatibility of the distribution they provide.
