i've been going through the wiki articles but so far this has been a
quite inconclusive thing.

I've prepared a VM and installed alpine-sdk, and also somehow set up
abuild, but I'm not even sure that was a step into the right

Ah, and just now I noticed the and stuff in aports.

I want to try to build packages for flashcache and openvswitch at some
point, right now I just want to install them "somehow" and test,
that's why I end up needing to compile some kernel modules.

Started a nice mass build of 1500 packages now and have no idea if
that will really help me in the end :)

Maybe this will just do it, but please take notice that one start-goal
documentation for this would not hurt.


the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
