When running the 3.9 netboot installer, you might face this problem mostly z/VM hypervisor (common among architectures without a RTC clock like armhf, aarch64, s390x) :
Which NTP client to run? ('busybox', 'openntpd', 'chrony' or 'none') [chrony] busybox \* service ntpd added to runlevel default \* Starting busybox ntpd ... [ ok ] ssl_client: mirrors.alpinelinux.org: ocsp verify failed: ocsp response not current wget: error getting response: Connection reset by peer r) Add random from the above list f) Detect and add fastest mirror from above list e) Edit /etc/apk/repositories with text editor Enter mirror number (1-0) or URL to add (or r/f/e/done) [f]:
This is because the clocksource on s390x was not yet detected. There is a pull request to make this work (would be available on 3.9.1 release):
In the mean time, to overcome this problem, you need to update the system time, either manullay using
date command or using NTP then start the installer as bellow:
# setup-interfaces # setup-dns # service networking start # ntpd -qn -p pool.ntp.org # setup-alpine
