Pycrypto on Alpine

This is just a quick post for weary travelers out there trying to find answers. On Alpine Linux, Pycrypto may not compile correctly. This is because Alpine uses the musl C library as opposed to the C standard library. When trying to compile, you may end up with something like this: checking for gcc... gcc checking whether the C compiler works... no configure: error: in `/tmp/pycrypto-2.6.1': configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables See `config.




So, recently, I wanted to start dual-booting Windows and Linux. I mainly use Windows for playing vidya. All coding is remote through an SSH client. I wanted a better local testing solution than spinning up a VM in VirtualBox… But, everyone knows that trying to install Linux alongside Windows is a horrible idea. Most times, installing Linux after Windows will manage to clobber the Windows bootloader and give you many, many issues (source: experience).
