Yes, I know M2 is not fully supported yet. Feel free to tell me to go away and wait, I’m happy to do that.
That being said, I’m new to the platform, so wanted to use the Asahi installer to at least get myself situated quickly on my new Mac mini (
j473ap) so I can at least mess around with m1n1.
I noticed a few things:
The installer had a few issues that seemed to have been resolved just recently, namely support for 13.5 in
installer_data.json. Great, so I just enabled expert mode and installed the
UEFI environment only (m1n1 + U-Boot + ESP)option okay,
Indeed, the docs/wiki hardware support matrix says “HDMI Out” is “WIP (m1n1 ok)”, so I assume that m1n1 should be okay (though it says “Main display” is “WIP”, which is confusing, since the Mac Mini only has a HDMI-out port?)
I don’t get HDMI output after the installer runs and the system attempts to boot on the new volume. Okay, I guess that maybe the bundled version of m1n1 from the installer doesn’t contain the recent HDMI-out fixes, so I build m1n1 from source and stumble through the dance of installing the newly built m1n1 with
kmutil, reboot, but still nothing. (No dice with
If things are still WIP, that’s fine, but given the above, it suggests that I should be at least able to get to muck around with m1n1 or U-Boot or something here, right? Like I said, I’m new to the platform, so am I missing anything? Is there still more TBD to at least get HDMI-out?
