[alpine-user] Alpine Linux in VMWARE

I am new to Alpine Linux but I have experience in other Linux (arch,
LFS, Ubuntu).
I successfully installed Alpine Linux in VMware. It boots okey but I
want vmwgfx framebuffer console.

So after boot I tried:
modprobe vmwgfx

And it end with error Could not insert 'vmwgfx': Invalid argument.

I am missing something trivial ? (hardened kernel?)

Thanks for any info.
