Alpine Raspberry PI

This is a system install of Alpine linux for Raspberry Pi 2B, 3B, 3B+ and 4 image ready to burn to an SD card via balenaEtcher (there's no need to gunzip image).

If you prefer the command line, you can use dd and gzip:

gzip -dc /path/to/your/image.gz | sudo dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdX

The image automatically setup and configures:

  • root user [pwd: raspberry]
  • pi user [pwd: raspberry]
  • ethernet
  • wifi (edit wpa_supplicant.conf in the boot partition, on first boot it will be copied)
  • bluetooth
  • avahi
  • swap
  • openssh server
  • root partition auto-expand on first boot
  • docker
  • portainer

Why this project?

I wanted a board where all the software on it is containerized and easy to restore.

Also, with Portainer, I can keep the entire system under control with a web GUI.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
