I have successfully made it work with many other distributions like: Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS,
Also works with FreeBSD and Windows for me. Never tried gentoo or slackware

It is very likely you will need to adapt the cloud-set-guest-password script to fit your OS.
You need to be aware where your dhcp client does save ip and gw information, then update the
script with the proper locations and proper passwd/mkpasswd commands.
All of the above differ from OS to OS and DHCP client to DHCP client.

Subject: cloud-set-guest-password w/ Slackware and Gentoo

It was recommended I also ask here on the mailing list for a possible answer to this question:

Has anyone had any luck getting the cloud-set-guest-password script working in Gentoo or Slackware?

I have been unsuccessful so far getting it to update the password when changed via the Hypervisor.
It still has the default password and doesn't seem to want to pull the new one.

I have tried default and boot run levels for the script, but no luck. I have only had one
erro so far that I was able to find:

Aug 21 21:54:22 localhost cloud: Failed to get password from any
server00009f400 (usable)

Aug 21 21:34:36 localhost cloud: Failed to get password from any server RAM map:

But that was yesterday on vm build and been unable to get it to error or produce a message
on reboots of failure or succession.
