I fixed that by copying /boot/efi/`EFI/debian/grubx64.efi` to `EFI/boot/bootx64.efi`
I found two ways to fix that :

- using the bless command from OS X (available from a recovery disk terminal). Mount your EFI partition as /Volumes.efi and issue te following commands as root: `bless --folder /Volumes/efi/EFI/debian --file /Volumes/efi/EFI/Debian/grubx64.efi --label Debian --setBoot` and `bless --mount /Volumes/efi/EFI/debian --file /Volumes/efi/EFI/Debian/grubx64.efi --label Debian --setBoot`

- copying /boot/efi/`EFI/debian/grubx64.efi` to `EFI/boot/bootx64.efi` (this doesn't require OS X but won't survive a grub reinstall)

Translation(s): none

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

Install of Debian Jessie from 20140116 nightly installer went fine, but after the install it will refuse to boot.

I found two ways to fix that :

- using the bless command from OS X (available from a recovery disk terminal). Mount your EFI partition as /Volumes.efi and issue te following commands as root: bless --folder /Volumes/efi/EFI/debian --file /Volumes/efi/EFI/Debian/grubx64.efi --label Debian --setBoot and bless --mount /Volumes/efi/EFI/debian --file /Volumes/efi/EFI/Debian/grubx64.efi --label Debian --setBoot

- copying /boot/efi/EFI/debian/grubx64.efi to EFI/boot/bootx64.efi (this doesn't require OS X but won't survive a grub reinstall)

Configuration

Tested system runs jessie/testing and uses systemd as init.

Display

Works as expected with i915.

Adjusting screen and keyboard backlight brightness works fine under X11.

I didn't try to attach an external screen.

Audio

Works fine out of the box. Adjusting volume with the keyboard works, as well as multimedia keys.

Mouse

Touchpad works out of the box.

Better support can be achieved with the xserver-xorg-input-mtrack driver.

Power Management

Suspend to RAM

Suspend to RAM works out of the box, at least with systemd.

Suspend to disk

Hibernation and resume works with systemd when booting off the hard drive or USB with the b43 module unloaded.

Dropping the following script in /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ achieve that:

if [ "$2" = "hibernate" ] ; then
    if [ "$1" = "pre" ] ; then
        logger -t "hibernate-fixup" "Unloading module b43"
        modprobe -r b43
    elif [ "$1" = "post" ] ; then
        logger -t "hibernate-fixup" "Reloading module b43"
        modprobe b43
    fi
fi

The touchpad is unresponsive after wakeup, but this can be fixed by unloading and reloading the bcm5972 module.

Dropping the following script in /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ achieve that:

if [ "$2" = "hibernate" ] ; then
    if [ "$1" = "pre" ] ; then
        logger -t "hibernate-fixup" "Unloading module bcm5974"
        modprobe -r bcm5974
   elif [ "$1" = "post" ] ; then
        logger -t "hibernate-fixup" "Reloading module bcm5974"
        modprobe bcm5974
   fi
fi

Booting off an SD card seems to break resume from hibernation. This might be related to the following kernel message:

Bluetooth

Bluetooth adapter is recognized but I didn't test it.

WiFi

BCM4331 wireless card requires a firmware installed by the firmware-b43-installer package.
