     oem-config-firstboot - run oem-config on first boot after shipping to end


     oem-config-firstboot [--debug]


     oem-config-firstboot performs some minor set-up before calling
     oem-config(8) (possibly via oem-config-dm(8)) to ask configuration
     questions of the end user.  It will call oem-config(8) up to five times
     until it succeeds (exiting zero).  If it succeeds, it will clean up the
     temporary OEM configuration user created during initial installation, and
     arrange for oem-config-firstboot not to be run again.  If it fails every
     time, it will drop to a shell to help the end user fix things up.

     oem-config-firstboot is suitable for calling from an init script, and is
     not intended to be run directly by users.

     The following options are available:

     -d, --debug
           Run in debugging mode, sending verbose information to
           /var/log/oem-config.log that may be useful to developers.  Note
           that passwords will be logged in debugging mode!

           In debugging mode, oem-config-firstboot will only try to run
           oem-config(8) once, and will not provide a panic shell on failure.
