Corellium CTO Chris Wade said Linux is now “fully usable” on Mac mini computers with M1 chips. Earlier, he promised to port the operating system.
Linux is now completely usable on the Mac mini M1. Booting from USB a full Ubuntu desktop (rpi). Network works via a USB c dongle. Update includes support for USB, I2C, DART. We will push changes to our GitHub and a tutorial later today. Thanks to the @CorelliumHQ team ❤️🙏 pic.twitter.com/uBDbDmvJUG— Chris Wade (@cmwdotme) January 20, 2021
Linux can be used by booting from a USB stick, Wade said. In his experiment, he used the Ubuntu distribution. The developer promised to publish a ready-made solution in the company’s GitHub repository and prepare a guide on creating a bootable disk.
Corellium first announced its work on porting Linux to M1 Macs last week, January 16th.
At that time, the developers reported that everything is in early beta testing, and the solution is intended only for experienced users. Recall that Apple introduced a lineup of Mac computers with the M1 processor last year. It includes MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac mini.
