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.
