Unsatisfiable constraints when installing packages on docker alpine

I’m build a docker image based on ruby:2.3-alpine. I need to install couple of packages for my rails application to run normally. Unfortunately the following packages does not exists on alpine repositories.

What’s the way to install them?

    $ apk add iceweasel

    Packages to install:

    • libav-tools
    • xfonts-base

    • iceweasel

    As of June, 2016 “firefox-esr” replaces Iceweasel.

    Here’s how to install it in an Alpine Docker container, and to run it to verify it’s installed correctly:

    FROM ruby:2.3-alpine
    RUN apk add --no-cache firefox-esr
    RUN firefox --version

    You’ll probably also need a virtual display (framebuffer) like xvfb. See this for more info => https://github.com/rickypc/docker-python-firefox-xvfb/blob/master/Dockerfile

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
