I use Alpine Linux for my Docker builds. I couldn’t use the precompiled tar.gz provided as I suppose it was built against glibc.
Not a big problem, I can report that I have successfully build L against musl, which the libc of Alpine and other embedded distros.
It is fairly straightforward. Note that
libxft2-dev is only
libxft-dev in the Alpine repo (
So to install the dependencies, I ran:
# apk add git gcc make bison flex libxft-dev
Please note though that I have not been able to test an app with GUI as I don’t use it.
