Google Linux kernel developers compile ARM64 Linux kernel with macOS.

Nick Desaulniers is a Linux kernel developer at Google, best known for compiling the Linux kernel with LLVM/Clang .

Recently he started experimenting with compiling the Linux kernel on the macOS platform.

 

According to his recent email , Nick Desaulniers has successfully compiled the ARM64 Linux kernel on his Apple M2 MacBook Air (running macOS 12.5.1 “Monterey”).

According to reports, Nick Desaulniers used his own build of LLVM/Clang and obtained some dependencies through Homebrew.

Based on these conditions, he was able to compile the Linux kernel under macOS – of course this does not mean that the Linux kernel can be used on macOS.

But for if you just want to develop and build/smoke test on Apple M1/M2 – this Linux support is enough.

 

Nick Desaulniers has released a patch in development that includes the necessary changes to perform a successful build.

The patch still needs to be cleaned up and cut before it may be submitted upstream in the future.
