Manually editing a existing apkovl
You might end up in a situation when you find it necessary to edit a apkovl (without having to boot a box using the apkovl itself).
Unpack the apkovl
Unpack the apkovl into a temp dir.
mkdir /tmp/testbox tar -xvzf testbox.apkovl.tar.gz -C /tmp/testbox/
Make your modifications
Now do your modifications in '/tmp/testbox/'
- Edit files/folders
- Add files/folders
- Remove files/folders
Pack the apkovl
When your modifications are done you should pack your apkovl
cd /tmp/testbox tar -czf /tmp/testbox.apkovl.tar.gz *
Replace the original apkovl
Now you have a new/modified apkovl.
Replace your original apkovl (on your media) with '/tmp/testbox.apkovl.tar.gz' and boot your Alpine.
