Linux is now fully usable on Mac computers

Ubuntu – the popular Linux distribution – can now be run across machines Mac The new with the M1 chip from a company Apple, thanks to Corellium, the security company that offers a default version of iOS for security testing.

And Corellium issued Educational program For those interested Experience this pilot project In order to run the modified version of Ubuntu via the normal UI with USB support.

The Corellium Team explained in detail How did they manage Ubuntu, and while a number of M1 components are shared with Apple’s portable chipset, the non-standard chips made it difficult to create Linux drivers to properly run Ubuntu.

Apple did not design Macs with the M1 chip to support Dual Boot or Boot Camp mode.

He ruled out (Craig Federighi) Craig Federighi, senior vice president of software engineering at Apple, official support for operating alternative operating systems locally, such as: Windows or Linux.

Virtualization appears to be Apple’s preferred method, but that hasn’t stopped people from trying their own.

And theget up (Hector Martin) Hector Martin, a developer who regularly runs Linux across a variety of devices, has brought Linux to Macs with the M1 chip.

It seems that developers are attracted to the performance advantages offered by Apple’s M1 chip, and the ability to run Linux via ARM based silent machine.

And he said (Linus TorvaldsLinus Torvalds, Linux designer last November: I’ve been waiting for an ARM-based laptop that can run Linux for a long time, and it’s going to be the new MacBook Air. Almost perfect, except for the OS.

And theDescribe (Chris Wade), Chief Technology Officer at Corellium, the new method provided by the company as being completely usable via the Mac Mini with the M1 chip.

Added: Works by booting Ubuntu desktop full version from USB, You need a USB-C dongle to make the networks work, and the process as a whole requires some familiarity with Linux and the custom kernel.

Corellium has some experience working with Apple’s operating system protections, providing security researchers with a virtual iPhone to help troubleshoot vulnerabilities.

This angered Apple to the point that it filed a lawsuit against Corellium, but it lost an early challenge against Corellium late last year, after it filed in August 2019 the case on copyright grounds.

Apple later alleged violations of the DMCA in January 2020, and a judge dismissed copyright infringement claims in December.

The verdict has been postponed on separate DMCA allegations.
