I wanted to try if I can easily create a disk image to run in an
OpenStack cloud. That differs a bit from EC2 cloud, but there is a sort
of compatible metadata server ( that can be used as

So I tried the result from live-image. 

So /etc/rc.d/ec2_init should be able to work with OpenStack (although
putting the ssh key in root's authorized_keys may be a bit useless since
it seems that ssh root logins are not allowed). But the detection in
/etc/rc.conf.d/ec2_init would need to be adjusted (OpenStack is not ec2
but does have the metadata service).

Another thing I noticed is that /etc/rc.d/resize_disklabel looks at the
wrong MBR partition to check for NetBSD: it looks at partition 1 but
should look at partition 0. At least on this image (from
live-image). Maybe it is also used on other types of live images?
It can't be about skipping the EFI partition because those occur on GPT
disks only.
