Hm, without nfs I'm unable to build edge-packages because I'm using nfs
to store the built results. :-/ In my case it's nfs client.

You know my answer... ;-)

Tried this on an "Acer Aspire One" but unfortunately with no success.
Here are the details:

- Boot up the box with RC2 (mini- and full-version tested)
- setup-alpine
- Choose "sys" as installation method
- Choose "sda" as media
- Answered all question regarding existing partitions with "y"
- Reboot the machine after finished installation

Now I got the following output on boot:

WARNING: No configuration file found
boot: _

With the blinking cursor at the end and nothing is going on. After
booting the install disk again and mounted sda1 > /mnt/sda1 and sda3 >
/mnt/sda3, there seems to be something missing on sda1 because there are
only the files "ldlinux.c32" and "ldlinux.sys" and the folder "lost+found".

Kind regards,
