To turn Alpine into postmarketOS:

  • Install Alpine Linux
  • Add this key to /etc/apk/keys
  • Add this mirror to the top of /etc/apk/repositories:
http://postmarketos.brixit.nl
  • Install the packages for the device and UI you want to have, for example:
apk add -u postmarketos-base device-nokia-rx51 postmarketos-ui-hildon

(Use device-qemu-amd64 for a x86_64 installation, but this will also install a kernel -- maybe it makes sense to introduce a new "docker device" without any kernel, you could experiment with that if you want.)
