-Gentoo Bootstrap
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-setup_build_gentoo.sh
-
-Sets up common needs for 32 and 64 bootstrap scripts and will print out the 
-commands to execute them:
-
-can pass 4 options, in order:
-region
-security group
-key pair
-private key of key pair
-
-if you do not set these:
-region defaults to "us-east-1"
-security group defaults to "gentoo-bootstrap" and it will be created if needed
-key pair defaults to "gentoo-bootstrap_$region" e.g. gentoo-bootstrap_us-east-1
-key file defaults to "gentoo-bootstrap_$region.pem"
-The key pair will be created if needed.
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-build_gentoo_64.sh
-
-Builds 64 bit Gentoo image. Will use a c1.medium for bootstrap instance.
-Will use a t1.micro as test instance.
-Because sudo will be called, this script cannot be run in the backgroud.
-Recommend running screen before running.
-
-Takes 4 options:
-region 
-security group
-key pair
-keyfile
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-build_gentoo_32.sh
-
-Builds 32 bit Gentoo image. Will use a c1.medium for bootstrap instance.
-Will use a t1.micro as test instance.
-Because sudo will be called, this script cannot be run in the backgroud.
-Recommend running screen before running.
-
-Takes 4 options:
-region 
-security group
-key pair
-keyfile
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-x86_64/remote_gentoo.sh & i386/remote_gentoo.sh
-
-The script to be copied to and executed on bootstrap instance.
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-x86_64/.config & i386/.config
-
-The .config file for building the kernel.
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-================================================================================
-Updates
-================================================================================
-
-Gentoo updates should normally be done manually in case an incorrectly done
-upgrade may render the system unusable. The purpose of these scripts is to do
-the same update across regions quickly.
-
-The plan is to manually do the update in one region and record the actions
-in ${architecture}/update_gentoo.sh. Once done these scripts can be used to
-replay it in the other regions.
-
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-
-update_gentoo_64.sh
-
-Updates the latest 64-bit Dowd and Associates Gentoo Linux AMI. Will use a
-c1.medium instance for upgrade and t1.micro as a test instance.
-Because sudo will be called, this script cannot be run in the background.
-Recommend running screen before running.
-
-Takes 4 options:
-region 
-security group
-key pair
-keyfile
