You can now install and run a Linux distribution on Apple’s new M1 Macs


If you are a fan of the GNU / Linux system and want to install it on your latest Apple computer with the M1 processor, it is now possible thanks to the American company Corellium. These virtualization specialists have successfully carried out a port of the Ubuntu Linux distribution which is operational on a Mac mini M1, as the technical director indicated in a tweet:

The version is available on GitHub. Corellium women a manual and explains the difficulties to carry out this port, in particular because of a complex system of loading of the kernel of the system on the Mac M1. The Linux system boots from a USB flash drive, and a USB Type-C dongle is required for network functions. Also, rendering of the display is purely software because hardware acceleration is not active.

This is not the first time that a Linux port has been attempted. One developer even started a crowdfunding project to focus on it full time. So far, it has raised only 77% of expected funding.

Last year, the Corellium company won a lawsuit against Apple accusing it of intellectual property infringement. Let us hope that the publication of this Linux port does not again trigger Apple’s wrath.
