At this time, this script has only found success with the aarch64 variant of Alpine Linux. armhf failed entirely and armv7 has not been tested. Your mileage may vary. Please do not use this in production.
Simple script for installing Alpine in sys mode on a Raspberry Pi
This README file will be updated with a better explanation once the script reaches a working state.
Using Rufus, wipe the card and create an empty FAT32 partition. This script only
accounts for the FAT partition starting at sector 2048 so you must use Rufus
for the time being to accurately format the card. Alternatively, you can use
fdisk and manually create a FAT32 LBA partition starting at 2048 and format it
Download the RPi archive of Alpine. Make sure you grab the version that is correct for your board's architecture. Extract the archive directly to the SD card--no need to use Etcher! Refer to Alpine's Wiki for more information.
Online instructions will come soon.
For an offline installation, use the following guide:
install.shto the root of the SD card, where the Alpine archive was extracted.
/media/mmcblk0p1/install.sh. The Raspberry Pi will reboot.
/media/mmcblk0p1/install.shagain. The script will begin installation of the system and will reboot once finished. You can safely ignore the warning about syslinux missing.
At this stage, Alpine is installed in a persistent state. You may have to run
setup-interfaces to get networking up. If you plan on using the Wi-Fi module
on compatible boards, you will need to add wpa_supplicant to the boot process:
# rc-update add wpa_supplicant boot
