    Phoronix: Corellium Posts Very Early Linux Port To Apple M1 Macs

    Apple-focused security/virtualization startup Corellium has posted a very primitive build of Linux for Apple M1 Mac devices...

    Let's hope they post the source soon, else they're going to be GPL violators

      It's only GPL violation if they distribute it. You are free to mess around with GPL code on you own machines however you want.

        They've already distributed a "very early beta" build.

        Also distributing broadcom binary blobs, and possibly a custom busybox build

          i think competition between Corellium and AsahiLinux can be interesting and that the first team that gets merged upstream "wins".

          From my point of view it is interesting that Corellium has something working, but how AsahiLinux is approaching the project documenting every single step, making clear statements on how they'll RE, open to collaborate with whoever that wants to follow the strict but necessary rules and with the clear goal of being accepted upstream is very interesting.

            yeah, but any friction between the two will likely be Corellium's fault, the Asahi project has stated they're more than willing to accept contributors and help review any M1-related patches

              I am not fan of Apple , but the M1 seems interesting. Just maybe there is a faint chance that the M1 can kick off a RISC-V based CPU soon that will have a hybrid of energy efficient cores and high performance cores. Of course that will be interesting (and challenging) for the process scheduler as it can run processes that chew on large amounts of data on the efficient cores on perhaps a slower scheduling interval, or if you nice the process it perhaps makes sense to run it on energy efficient core(s) chugging along in the background.

              Not sure how the CFS on Linux handle hybrid configurations , but Intel is lagging behind these days which is good for making some healthy competition.

                The GPL doesn't say that both binary builds and source archive must be available at the same time. In fact a written offer to send the code via mail (with media and shipping cost to be paid by the user) is enough. There can't be a profit attached to ending over the code but it's still a hurdle one must take to get the code and it's all fine with the FSF.
