I originally asked this question here but never got a response and since ask is merging into discussions figured it might be worth another try.
I’m working on a project using CoreOS but my main machine is the MacBook Pro with the M1 Max (it is a fantastic machine). I’m looking to develop mostly on the MacBook but still run the machine locally. Was hoping to use qemu but qemu-kvm is not available on MacOS.
While I could use VirtualBox or VMware, I’d prefer to stick with just qemu…
Are you wanting to develop on top of Fedora CoreOS or are you wanting to develop/hack Fedora CoreOS itself? If it’s the latter podman machine actually uses Fedora CoreOS under the hood so you could just use that workflow to get a running FCOS (easy peasy) and then use that started machine for your developing.
In lieu of the docs existing targeting the platform specifically (maybe open an issue against fedora-coreos-docs), WDYT about trying out podman machine? This sets up FCOS for you and you should then be able to just ssh into the machine.
@jasonmccallister does this still work for you? When I run podman machine init --ignition-path <file> followed by podman machine start I get an error: Error: dial unix /var/folders/tl/4hz9nhy17s9134l5l6syhq9n_ck3x6/T/podman/qmp_podman-machine-default.sock: connect: no such file or directory
