Alpine Linux on CD

Because this doc will describe on how you get Alpine Linux to boot from CD, you should prepare by doing:

Preparing the media

Start by burning the ISO-image onto your empty CD using your ISO-image burning software.

Boot Alpine

Put your Alpine Linux CD in a computer that can boot from CD.

Note: You might need to change boot-order in your BIOS-settings in order to boot from CD.

When your computer has booted you will get prompted for a username.
On a clean Alpine Linux you just enter root and no password and you will get logged on to your Alpine linux.

Alpine Linux has some special applications that helps you to use it in the way you want.
Some of the first scripts you are suggested to use is:

  • setup-alpine (Configures all basic things on your Alpine Linux)
  • setup-acf (was named setup-webconf before Alpine 1.9 beta 4) (Configures ACF (webconfiguration) so you can manage your box through https)
Note: Just type any of the above commands on your console and hit Enter to execute the script.
