Linux now works (almost) completely on Macs with M1 SoC

At the beginning of this week, developer Corellium announced that a Linux port has been made available for Apple’s Macs with the M1 system-on-a-chip. It was still about beta software. Chris Wade, Corellium’s chief technology officer, has revealed that it is now fully functional on the new Macs.

The new version can be found at GitHub. Now the usb-c ports on the Mac devices should also work, just like i2c and dart. Booting is via USB, for network options you will have to use a USB-C dongle. The maker of hypervisors running on the arm instruction set explains in one in-depth blog post how the porting went and how users can install it. Currently there is no support for GPU acceleration yet.
