I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 image as my base box for vagrant. Unfortunately this base box contains cloud-init which causes many problems during starting-up the machine: https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant/issues/3860
I'm not using my machine in the cloud so I don't really need this. I though typing:
sudo apt-get remove cloud-init
will solve my problems but the machine still spend about 3 minutes on startup trying to configure something I don't need.
I can see there a a number of cloud-init related files in
/etc/init (for example
cloud-config.conf etc). I could delete them but I'm not sure if this is safe.
I've also installed
rcconf to check all starup scripts but I can't find anything related to cloud-init there. Any ideas?
