Cannot install any alpine version to efi only boot device without network connection
Boot Alpine-extended-3.7.0 from USB
Select all default options
Select no remote mirror (only /media/sda/apks)
install to local drive ‘sys’
error unsatisfiable constraints:
required by: world(grub-efi)
Similar messages with alpine-standard. And of course the website states that the standard version needs a network connection. But could this be reconsidered? It seems strange that Alpine, one of the worlds smallest distros requires a network connection to install.
Any workaround? I tried to copy the apk to the usb key but this did’t work. I don’t have a network interface on this device, so is alpine not installable here?
