Not a good choice for non-experts. Is there a reason you can't use a
mainstream linux? If we know more about what you wish to accomplish we
might be able to provide useful advice.

You mentioned that you installed as "root". That is generally not a good
idea. A better
approach is to create the toplevel directory, e.g.. /usr/local/texlive, and
ownership to an ordinary user who will administer texlive.
It is quite possible that ash isn't totally compatible with the texlive
scripts. Can you install
dash or bash for testing?

The installer should use the appropriate path when running kpathsea
I also tried to install in my home folder and I got the same errors.

Show us "ls -l ./tex" and "ldd tex", assuming you have or can install
