I'm revisiting this idea but can't find any guides to install alpinelinux onto my computer.

I've spent the day emptying a 1tb hard drive (as i bought the wrong sized one from amazon - no I got the inches right but didn't realise there was a slimtype and full type). I now have it in my old laptop and am copything a disk of alpine linux onto my pendrive in order to boot to it, anyone know how I can permenantly install it on that hard drive?

EDIT: I think I've found it but it has this warning (the drive is empty though):

I'm stuck with my install of alpine Linux. Anyone who suggested it or knows something about it please help. I'm getting an error like this https://github.com/gliderlabs/docker-alpine/issues/207.

My /etc/apk/repositories file has just https://nl.alpinelinux.org/alpine/ in it

You should try a friendly version of linux... I have used Fedora and Centos for the past years but as almost each linux user I started with Ubuntu. Ubuntu has a great community and great support to fix any issue you have is a great option to start, but if you want to manage your OS as the same way as you work with your servers, then fedora is the way, and that's because a big % of the servers runs with Centos... Centos and Fedora come from Red Hat, and that means they can be used as the same way with Command line.

I really hate Ubuntu. Debian is equally as bad.. My debian I installed a few years ago came with jdk1! I'm pretty sure it is a package older than me Grin.

Open source apps are great but they come with a lot of vulnerabilities and not updating something in 30 years or however long it was just sounds like they're asking for trouble and I need something secur and something lightweight. Arch has some good support too though.

Linux is like cryptos my friend, The code will work as the coder decide, so, the thing here is Who is behind the OS, if you want to invest in some tokens created with a smart contract then go for distros like Alpine, Puppy, or others... If you want coins with big features like BTC, ETH or Monero, then go for distros like Ubuntu, Fedora or Slack.

I would recommend you to give a try to fedora, it could be an empty and clean OS, or an OS who compete with Windows and MacOS.

Let me show you some screenshots about how had i configured my Fedora, for me, this is the best OS in 2019, i can do everything with it.

So, here is a great tutorial about the steps to follow after install fedora to configure your server (It's in Spanish but the commands works for any language):

And the SPIN i recommend is the MATE one because it use GNOME 2.*

That's because Debian is conservative OS which mean they prefer stability/security over newer feature/application version and they don't include propriety/non-free application/driver by default.

Popular Linux distro such as Ubuntu, Debian or Fedora shouldn't have as much as vulnerabilities as you think.

I would recommend you to give a try to fedora

I recommend the opposite:


Red Hat (who make Fedora and Centos) are abusing their position in the Linux world. They're recreating important parts of Linux (init, desktop, device interface etc) in a way that forces you to use all their stuff.

The sensible way is to make components that are small, and compatible with alternatives. Red Hat are doing the opposite, making huge system components that force everyone else to become compatible with them (and lots of Linux software and distros are going along with this).

This approach makes it much harder to change bad software for good software, because the bad software is such a fundamental part of Linux underlying everything else


Don't use Red Hat's stuff, or anything else that uses Red Hat's stuff, there are better designed alternatives with smaller, better code (and hence fewer bugs) that don't lock you into their way of doing things.
