Updated Debian filesystem

➡ Now uses shadow and md5 passwords
➡ Removed unncessary packages from the default install
➡ Will generate ssh keys on initial boot
➡ Reduced minimum size from 100M to 80M
➡ General cleanups

    Debian is generating ssh keys on every boot, not just on initial. (Oopsie.) {grin}

    Would also strongly suggest version numbers on distribution images so we know exactly what we’ve got and what’s been added since we last ran the distro wizard.

    Ahh crud.

    [code]rm -f /etc/rcS.d/S59sshkeysfirstboot[/code]

    Will get rid of that condition.

    I’ll spin through the rest of the hosts and update the default images to fix this.

    Thanks.

    Ok — SSH keys on reboot is fixed on all the host’s default debian image…

    Any thoughts on including a small linode distribution version file with each distro?

    Yes, I think it’s an excellent idea!
