has anyone had success running Alpine Linux on the Raspberry Pi 4? I have copied the contents of the Alpine release for rpi 64bit from here to an SD Card formatted with FAT32, but I only get to the coloured square.
I tried copying the firmware files and the linux kernel from the raspbian distribution, but still haven't had gotten past the coloured square screen.
I have seen references saying that the Armhf release of Alpine is recommended, perhaps that would work. http://markbucciarelli.com/posts/2019-05-05_install-alpine-on-raspberry-pi-using-macos.html
Edit: When I run
lscpu on raspbian it looks like a 32 bit build of linux, so I'll have to try the 32 version of Alpine.
