Alpine Linux Install

Post by danijeljw »

Hi There,

Does anyone know how to install this on a fresh installation of Alpine Linux?

I am trying to compile it, and keep installing the required dependencies, but now I'm stuck on this part:

Code: Select all

hecking for LIBNTFS_3G... no
configure: error: Cannot find libntfs-3g version 2011-4-12 or
                 later!  Without libntfs-3g, wimlib cannot include support for
                 capturing or applying a WIM image directly from/to an unmounted
                 NTFS volume while preserving NTFS-specific data such as
                 security descriptors and named data streams.  Either install
                 libntfs-3g, or configure --without-ntfs-3g to disable this
                 feature.
I have installed ntfs-3g and ntfs-3g-lib on Alpine Linux, but I can't get past this part. Anyone have an install script to install this application on Linux, or know of a repo I can add to install it?

Try installing the ntfs-3g-dev package.

Now I forgot all the steps I took to get to that part! :(

I'm trying to setup an Alpine wimlibx image to use.

If I work it out - I'll post a solution here.
