Install Alpine on VirtualBox
How To Install Alpine on VirtualBox
VirtualBox is a Sun/Oracle virtualization product for x86 architecture. This document describes one way to install alpine to that platform.
Create the Virtual Machine
Start by creating new VM and setting it to run linux with 2.6 series kernel.
Set amount of memory. Since alpine runs in memory the recommended 256 MB might be too little for your needs.
Create a disk. I wanted to emulate a Compact Flash system, so the setting is 2GB. This could be much higher if you like.
