Are you looking for Linux Distribution for Apple Silicon? Meet: Asahi Linux

Asahi Linux is a project and community with the goal of porting Linux to Apple Silicon Macs, starting with the 2020 M1 Mac Mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro. Apple silicon is a series of system on a chip (SoC) and system in a package (SiP) processors designed by Apple Inc., mainly using the ARM architecture.

Asahi Linux goal is not just to make Linux run on these machines but to polish it to the point where it can be used as a daily OS. Doing this requires a tremendous amount of work, as Apple Silicon is an entirely undocumented platform. In particular, we will be reverse engineering the Apple GPU architecture and developing an open-source driver for it.

Asahi Linux is developed by a thriving community of free and open source software developers.

Asahi means “rising sun” in Japanese, and it is also the name of an apple cultivar. 旭りんご (asahi ringo) is what we know as the McIntosh Apple, the apple variety that gave the Mac its name.

Asahi Linux is an overall project to develop support for these Macs. We will eventually release a remix of Arch Linux ARM, packaged for installation by end-users, as a distribution of the same name. The majority of the work resides in hardware support, drivers, and tools, and it will be upstreamed to the relevant projects. The distribution will be a convenient package for easy installation by end-users and give them access to bleeding-edge versions of the software we develop.

You can find their Github repository here:

Is Asahi Linux Legal?

As long as no code is taken from macOS to build the Linux support, the result is completely legal to distribute and for end-users to use, as it would not be a derivative work of macOS

Setup Debian 11 Official Repository In sources.list (/etc/apt/sources.list)

When you install Debian 11 using a DVD, the OS installer sets the DVD as the source for getting packages for your system if you didn't choose to scan for network mirrors. Due to this reason, the system would ask you to insert a DVD if the disc is not present in the DVD drive when you try to install any software.  Also, the packages on DVD may not be the latest release.  So, we need to get the packages from the Internet. Media change: please insert the disc labeled 'Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04' in the drive '/media/cdrom/' and press [Enter] The /etc/apt/sources.list file with DVD as a source would look something like below. # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 11.0.0 _Bullseye_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20210814-10:04]/ bullseye contrib main deb bullseye-security
