Talk:Install Alpine on VMware Workstation

From Alpine Linux

Proposed changes:

  • 1.1 Clarification for this line -> the vm doesn't need a hard drive - Got me confused where to install the OS?

because in 3.2 there is mention of hd: 'change the boot order so that it boots from cd, then hd'

  • 1.3 To change this -> choose new floppy image -> to this: choose 'Create a blank floppy image' the way it's written on vmWorkstation..
  • 5.3 To expand setup-alpine by including the instructions from the topic Install to disk -> setup-alpine, except for the Reboot part.
  • Command grsec pax_nouderef returns 'command not found' (using alpine-3.3.1-x86_64.iso). Need additional instruction on how to install grsec.

Re: "3 press f2 on boot to enter the BIOS

   1 warning: this can be a real timing trick..."

Solution: Add bios.forceSetupOnce = "TRUE" to the VM's .vmx file.
