Alpine Linux and Qemu

QEMU is a very flexible open source machine emulator and virtualizer. QEMU is able to virtualize x86, PowerPC, and S390 guests.

Create the Virtual Machine

Create a disk image if you want to install Alpine.

The following command starts qemu with the alpine iso image as cdrom and boot device, the default network configuration, 256 MB memory, and the disk image that was created in the previous step.

After the installation qemu can be started from disk image (-boot c) without cdrom.

If your just want to give Alpine a try, qemu can be used without a disk image.
