Alpine in WSL

Configure Alpine in WSL (assumes WSL has been configured/setup)

Create WSL Image

Import Alpine into WSL (make sure the directory structure exists)

wsl --import AlpineX.YY C:\Path\To\Directory\For\Alpine\WSL .\alpine.version.tar.gz

Test getting into it

wsl -d AlpineX.YY

Configure the Image

May want to make sure any Terminals call as a user, but make sure to adduser that user first

wsl -d AlpineX.YY --user myuser

May want to install alpine-conf to run things like timezone setup (e.g. setup-timezone)


Mounts like C:\ are in /mnt/c but also \\wsl$ can access WSL from the Windows host
