Asahi Linux is a build of Arch Linux for Apple Silicon devices. The goal of the project is to reverse-engineer that hardware and work towards upstreaming support for it in all of the various open source projects in the Linux community.
macOS >= 12.3
53 GB of free space
There is no offline installation media yet. Asahi Linux must be installed using an online connection to download the latest in-development packages.
The installation will configure a dual-boot. Since Ashai Linux is not stable yet and macOS provides updated firmware files, macOS is left installed.
Three options are provided for the installation:
Ashai Linux with the KDE Plasma desktop environment
Ashai Linux without the KDE Plasma desktop environment (terminal only)
UEFI environment for testing other Linux operating systems
Start the installer:
$ curl https://alx.sh | sh
