EC2 Cloudinit and Redhat

Base Redhat AMIs do not come with aws-cfn-bootstrap installed. To use cfn-init in various cloudformation scripts, a new base image is needed with these tools installed. Here is how i did so:

1$ easy_install requests
2$ easy_install python-daemon
3
4$ wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/cloudformation-examples/aws-cfn-bootstrap-latest.tar.gz
5$ tar -xvzf aws-cfn-bootstrap-latest.tar.gz
6$ cd aws-cfn-bootstrap*
7$ python setup.py build
8$ python setup.py install
