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

Used MrChromeBox to setup BIOS with RW_LEGACY mode. First attempt almost bricked it, all I could do was run the ChromeOS recovery. The recovery zipballs is available under "delbin".

$ wget https://dl.google.com/dl/edgedl/chromeos/recovery/chromeos_14816.131.0_volteer_recovery_stable-channel_mp-v8.bin.zip
$ sha256sum chromeos_14816.131.0_volteer_recovery_stable-channel_mp-v8.bin.zip 
2d3e6fa47a7cdd0268effc2c16650f403c77cb5927208c1e88d877c31b771ee4  chromeos_14816.131.0_volteer_recovery_stable-channel_mp-v8.bin.zip
$ unzip -p chromeos_14816.131.0_volteer_recovery_stable-channel_mp-v8.bin.zip \
  | sudo dd of=/dev/DEVICE_NAME_OF_USB bs=4M conv=fsync status=progress

Although, "delbin-xhvi" is not listed on the recovery site, it seems to be a "volteer" device like the "delbin".

Configuration

Display

Audio

Audio did not work on bullseye, there was only ever "Dummy Output". The speakers work on bookworm after doing:

I have not yet gotten sound out of the headphone jack, and GNOME does not seem to detect the plug events.

Trackpad

The trackpad did not work with the graphical install, but worked fine once booted into the Debian install.

Power Management

WiFi
