Setting up the build environment in a chroot
You will need a few Gigabytes to have enough pace for kernel compiling and storing all the binary packages and iso image.
This page is divided into 2 main sections
Create a build environment
The Build Environment (called BE from now on) could be any of the following...
- Created on a existing 2.6 kernel
- A disk-based Alpine
Create BE on existing 2.6 kernel
Create BE on HD-based Alpine
Preparing KVM (temporary notes)
I chose to setup a HD-based Alpine in a virtual machine on my Ubuntu 8.10.
(Notes: This section about setting up KVM should probably be removed later on - it's mostly there to help me get started).
apt-get install kvm ###This installs KVM### kvm-img create alpine-kvm_hd.img 5G ###Create a KVM-disk### sudo kvm -cdrom alpine.iso -boot d alpine-kvm_hd.img
