Install LXD on Alpine Linux

In this tutorial, we’ll install LXD, configure our system to run LXC containers and initialize LXD on Alpine Linux. It should work on all platforms where LXD/LXC is supported (x86_64, ARM64, and more). Alpine Linux is “an independent, non-commercial, general purpose Linux distribution designed for power users who appreciate security, simplicity and resource efficiency”. It’s incredibly lightweight and can be really useful for containers and virtual machines, as both a host and as a guest.

Use Alpine Linux as a Hypervisor (with KVM, QEMU and libvirt) on AMD64 and ARM64

This tutorial will show you how to install a virtualization stack consisting of KVM, QEMU and libvirt on Alpine Linux, with support for both AMD64 and ARM64 based computers. Alpine Linux is “an independent, non-commercial, general purpose Linux distribution designed for power users who appreciate security, simplicity and resource efficiency”. It’s incredibly lightweight and is useful for both containers and virtual machines, as both host and as guest.
