Error starting the mattermost server on apple M1


I am encountering an error when trying to start the mattermost server on my apple m1 laptop and from the error content, I believe it is related to the chip architecture differences

I ran through the developer setup steps listed here Developer Setup and
I am stuck at step 8.

I was expecting to smoothly get the server started

This is the error I see:
Pulling mysql (mysql:5.6)…

5.6: Pulling from library/mysql

ERROR: no matching manifest for linux/arm64/v8 in the manifest list entries

make: *** [start-docker] Error 1

Hello! Unfortunately, Mattermost is not supported on the ARM(x) architecture, so you will be unable to use any official build or composition of the software as long as you are deploying it from an ARM arch. However, if you are really interested in deploying on ARM there are various unofficial builds that have been created by third parties that can be found on Github that are supposed to work for your architecture.
