I installed Alpine Linux on Intel Compute Stick with 32 Bit Atom Processor.
After installation I followed the procedure laid out here for connecting to internet via wlan0 port: Connecting to a wireless access point.
However during boot it hangs up with this last message:
"successfully initialized wpa_supplicant"
It hangs for a long long time and a manual intervention with Ctrl+C is required to move past this step.
One solution is to start internet after booting completes so that it does not hijack the booting process - However non availability of internet during boot causes Chronyd NTP client to fail as it needs access to internet.
