This Archlinux package contains a script allowing minimal configuration of an Archlinux system for running in the Amazon Web Services Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2).
Basically, the script does the following:
- Associate the hostname and the IP address of the instance in the /etc/hosts file
- Allow the public key specified as the instance start parameter to log in as root
- Creates a basic user named arch if it does not exist
- On first boot, run as a script the metadata passed as a start parameter to the instance
