Alpine + Docker

Because the official guide at doesn’t work as expected, I try to summarize, what I had to do to make it work:

Installing the alpine linux straight forward as describes.

Afterwards, you have to perform the following steps:

  • In the file /etc/apk/repositories enable the “edge” and “v3.3” repositories (we need both!)
  • Update & upgrade alpine
apk update
apk upgrade
  • Because of the compatibility issue for the module-package linux-grsec (which installs 4.4.8), install the 4.1.20 (or the package, which is for the current system valid – check per uname -r  package instead
apk rm linux-grsec
apk add 'linux-grsec=4.1.20-rc0'
