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.

Important Note

To install Debian on this machine the kernel needs to be of the 2.6 series as the audio, video and built-in wireless NIC card won't function properly or at all. Debian "testing" aka "Lenny" must be installed for everything to function properly.

If you need wifi to work, you must have the uucode firmware file handy either during or after installation. If uucode file is iwlwifi-3945-2.ucode you must rename it to iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode in order for wifi hardware to work. Put iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode in /lib/firmware/.
