Persistence

Wouldn't it be more reasonable to partition the SD-Card accordingly? That way, you could have FS > 2GB, too. --Kurushiyama (talk) 10:53, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

I have read that using a journalling fs is not a good idea for SD cards as it shortens their life by multiplying the read/writes. Wouldn't ext2 thus be a better fs for persistent overlays? -- Nevarmaor (talk) 21:56, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Installing Alpine- Linux on raspberry pi zero w (udhcpc fail problem)

The existing tutorial for raspberry pi is followed except on the reboot, the udhcpc attempts to connect and fails. I managed to fix this problem by editing the /etc/network/interfaces file and add the line:

iface wlan0 inet dhcp

  pre-up wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf #<--This is the line added to pre-start the wpa_supplicant daemon and log on correctly. 

I learned this with the help of the tutorial by Jack Wallen: How to Configure Wireless... on linux.com website
