firstboot requires X, which we don't install on our servers. I am trying to match cli bootstrap functionality with Debian/Ubuntu.
It might have an RPM dependency on X, but it doesn't need an X server.
There's no reason why you shouldn't have a start-up script like firstboot that does what you want, it's not at all difficult to write such a script.
To follow up on this, using python snack in an init script instead of python curses works.
