How to use Alpine Linux commit hooks
- Create directory
- Put your executable files in there
- First argument passed to your script is the stage (
#!/bin/sh if ! mount | grep -q '/boot/efi'; then mount /boot/efi fi if [[ "$1" == "post-commit" ]]; then cp /boot/initramfs-lts /boot/efi/alpine/initramfs-lts cp /boot/vmlinuz-lts /boot/efi/alpine/vmlinuz-lts fi
I use Gummiboot as my bootloader,
which can boot Linux kernel images directly from the EFI partition.
Alpine packages don’t care about EFI though, they just put the stuff in
(I mean, the official wiki just says “manually copy them to
/boot/efi/”, which works but I tend to forget about it)
I didn’t want to mount EFI as
/boot, so I decided that creating a commit hook would be
the easiest way of hotfixing that issue (not ideal, as it runs with every apk commit,
but feasible for my use).
