    I try to setup NoMachine in Alpine Linux. The closest distro is Gentoo Linux so followed the steps for Gentoo, but have some errors:

    1) installed all requirements (so does not use from busybox limited )

    • linuxutils:apk add wget attr coreutils grep util-linux pciutils usbutils binutils lsof less curl
    • xorg: apk add udev gtkglext pango atk cairo gdk-pixbuf mesa-gl libxcb libxrandr libxv libxxf86vm libxxf86misc libxmu
    • desktop: apk add lxdm openbox (must be defined DESKTOP_SESSION)
    • awk: apk add gawk
    • usb: modprobe vhci-hcd; apk add linux-headers linux-vanilla-dev build-base linux-virt-dev
    • pam: apk add linux-pam
    • gcc: apk add gcc gcc-objc gcc-gnat gcc-doc g++
    • automake: apk add make m4 automake autoconf bison flex flex-libs
    • crypo: openssl openssl graphviz-dev nettle-dev2) download and untar NoMachine
      tar -C /usr/ -xzf nomachine_6.4.6_1_i686.tar.gz

      3) try to run the installer and emulated the redhat 5/6 environment:

      /usr/NX/nxserver –install redhat

      but there’s no sucess ..

      Could someone tell me how to install and emulate all the steps manually? What files does NoMachine expect will be present?



    We test NoMachine with many flavours of Linux, there are hundreds out there, unfortunately we can’t test with all of them 🙂

    The main reason is that Alpine Linux is shipped with musl instead of glibc. We are trying to figure out if there are more problems with it and checking if it’s possible to run NoMachine on Alpine at this time

    Also we will need some additional information. Please collect /usr/NX/var/log/nxinstall.log and /usr/NX/var/log/nxupdate.log (if it exist) files, send those information to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com, please.
