[GRASS-dev] Docker image based on Alpine Linux with GRASS GIS 7.7.git and wxGUI

No Idea if it helps: for our national e-infrastructure I had to customize a docker file based on Ubuntu. There, I initially also struggled with the GUI (import error for wx), but after adding the packages here:
https://github.com/ninsbl/doctest/blob/master/novnc/Dockerfile#L156 (until line 162)
It worked with GRASS 7.9 and Python3 in a Docker container.

The Dockerfile contains lots of packages, so I cannot guarantee that other packages I had installed earlier are not required in addition...

I guess it is only visible to me.
I have downloaded it - you can get it now from here:

> This says /src/grass_build/dist.x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/. I assume it is from "make" but the GRASS GIS there is running from /usr/local/grass77, so I assume there is also the "make install" step?

Exactly. Apparently there is a condition somewhere in the wxGUI Makefiles?
