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

Along with linux-ec2 and ec2build, this package allows building a basic Archlinux EC2 instance.
