Re: [alpine-user] Alpine 3.9.1 setup fails

I managed to install by carrying out the following:

Configure networking with `setup-networking`

Configure DNS with `setup-dns`

Start network with `ifup eth0` (assuming your interface is eth0)

Configure repositories with `setup-apkrepos`

Check that works with `apk update` - it should tell you it has approx
9000 packages

Run `setup-alpine` and follow the prompts.   Much of what it will ask
will have been configured above.

After this, it should work.

Good luck!
