Ah okay, thanks. I assume that you mean this one (CentOS-8-EC2.ks):


Can I use this ks file to compose an new image with lorax?
Or are some other tools missing / unseen by me to build a working image?

I would like to start right away booting some instances for testing 

BTW, in the meanwhile I was already elaborating the workflow of 
importing images into my aws account. thereby i noticed that
ec2 import-snapshot does not support the qcow2 disk format.
The next supported format would be "raw" ... still elaborating
the workflow ...

This sounds reasonable.
