Bootup then run initial setup

setup-alpine

Add either the v1.10 or the edge repo

echo "http://dl-3.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v1.10/packages/main" >> /etc/apk/repositories

OR

echo "http://dl-3.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/packages/main" >> /etc/apk/repositories

Run the setup-disk script so that we don't need CD anymore, then reboot when prompted

setup-disk

Install xorg, XFCE and basic desktop system. This might take a few minutes depending on your network speed. Note: at the end of the command, add a package for your video chipset. For example, if you have an Sis video chipset, add xf86-video-sis to the package list.

apk add xorg-server xf86-video-vesa xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse xf86-input-evdev slim xfce4 midori parole sudo

Run Xorg -configure
If mouse (or other device) not detected, check /var/log/dmesg, lspci or similar for proper device name to use, edit /root/xorg.conf.new as needed

Create a normal user account.

adduser ncopa

Optionally, give that user sudo permissions in /etc/sudoers.

Start slim and log in with your new user.

rc-service slim start

Once you have verified that it actually works you can make slim start up at boot:

rc-update add slim
