Alpine Linux

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:02 UTC


Alpine Linux is a community developed operating system designed for x86 routers, firewalls, VPNs, VoIP boxes and servers. It was designed with security in mind; it has proactive security features like PaX and SSP that prevent security holes in the software to be exploited. The C library used is musl and the base tools are all in BusyBox. Those are normally found in embedded systems and are smaller than the tools found in GNU/Linux systems.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 62 (183), 6 months: 76 (162), 3 months: 79 (150), 4 weeks: 74 (140), 1 week: 69 (145)

Average visitor rating: 9.2/10 from 10 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Comes with almost everything you need. And it is:
- fast
- secure
- stable
- slim
- well-maintained
- good documented
- perfect for docker (host AND guest)

With a small bootstrapping script you will have an unattended installation method that fits your personal needs. See https://gist.github.com/thde/5312a42665c5c901aef4
