Alpine ISO: Attempts to load boot media from last detected CD-ROM device?
I haven’t looked into this in depth, but attempting to load an Alpine 2.0.x ISO onto a KVM virtual machine with two CD-ROM devices (this could be a ‘bad’ KVM configuration), the ISO attempts to load the boot media from the second CD-ROM device, even though the ISO is loaded into the first CD-ROM device.
In order to get the Alpine ISO to boot properly, I have to enter the following at the ‘boot:’ prompt:
/boot/grsec initrd=/boot/grsec.gz alpine_dev=sr0:iso9660 modules=loop,cramfs,sd-mod,usb-storage,floppy,sr-mod quiet
From there, it boots up and I can proceed with installation.
