Startup scripts for FreeBSD/EC2 environment
This package provides boot scripts used to enable FreeBSD to run on the Amazon EC2 cloud computing platform. These include
- Downloading the SSH public key which will be used to log in to a newly-launched virtual machine,
- Printing SSH host key fingerprints to the console in a standard format used by other EC2 images,
- Automatically configuring swap space on EC2 “ephemeral” disks, and
- Sending email when an virtual machine first boots and when rebooting after a kernel panic.
