DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.

CPU Frequency Scaling




Sleep / Suspend



{OK} (requires post jessie Xorg and Kernel!)

- OpenGL


- Resize-and-Rotate(randr)


Switch to External Screen



- Built-in (Clickpad)

{i} (jumps wildly from time to time, middle mouse button requires config)



Keyboard's Hotkeys

{i} (might depend on your desktop environment, keycodes are reported correctly)

Legend :
{OK} = OK ; {X} Unsupported(No Driver) ; /!\ = Error (Couldn't get it working); [?] Unknown, Not Test ; [-] Not-applicable
{i} = Configuration Required; X-( = Only works with a non-free driver and or firmware

Important Note

Before you can start the installation you've to disable secure boot in the UEFI(BIOS replacement thingy). To be allowed to disable secure boot you're to configure a supervisor password.



13.3" FHD display (none glare) powered by Intel Haswell ULT, should be Intel HD 4400. HDMI (fullsize) is available as a connector for an external display. The Xorg packages released with jessie worked but the Clickpad was still unsupported. Post jessie packages from unstable work fine. Backlight adjustment does not work out of the box, the keycodes are correctly supported but you've to create a helper script to echo the change values into /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0/card0-eDP-1/intel_backlight/brightness.
