Hi,

I'm an Alpine Linux beginner. Using it for our Dockerized CI processes.

I need to use md5 but apk add md5 fails.

Is there an alternative package that I can use on Alpine?

Thank you.

md5sum is working on my system (I used the 'Standard' .iso to install Alpine: alpine-standard-3.6.2-x86_64.iso) and didn't go out of my way to install an md5sum utility. At any rate, looking through the internet, it looks like coreutils may be the package providing that utility. I hope that helps...

Ah, my bad. I thought the utility is called md5.

md5sum works out of the box.
