It is expected that Linux 5.13 will initially support Apple's Silicon M1 processor, but the full support work may take several years to complete. Although Linux can already run on Apple's Silicon M1, it needs a series of patches to achieve this. Now Linux 5.13 is expected to get initial support in its kernel.
According to Phoronix, developer Hector Martin has initially implemented M1 support, and is expected to incorporate these improvements into a part of kernel 5.13. Now the work is relatively smooth, and it is expected to form a stable version around June 2021. Martin had previously launched a pateon crowdfunding campaign to support his development of the project.
The crowdfunding address is as follows:
Previously, corellium ran a Linux version on M1, as shown in the figure below. However, its developers said that Apple's new non-standard method made it difficult to adapt.
