Feeling some love for Alpine Linux

Posted at — Mar 7, 2016

I’m buried hip deep in OpenLDAP, Free Radius, and Yubikey; as I make my way I’m starting to appreciate Alpine Linux as a Docker scratch OS as absolutely nothing compared to mostly nothing. Meaning that while Alpine Linux is a basic Linux distro it’s default Docker container has no running services making it an ideal Docker guest OS. Now the trick is to manage the package manager.
