I heard, that Alpine Linux is an OS with a very small footprint, so i downloaded the "virtual" image and

You can setup the system with the command: setup-alpineThis will guide you through a 11 step setup (read the manual). To get a installation with persistent homes, etc. you have to choose the "sys" mode.
And then after a reboot, i have a Linux VM with 170MB.
For my next steps (installing docker, cloning some nodes) this should be the right choice.
[Installing docker is quite easy: remove the # before "edge/community" in /etc/apk/repositories and the run "apk update" and "apk add docker".]
