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.

{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

The X server won't work with the kernel in Jessie, so you can either install Jessie and upgrade the kernel before setting up X, or use the Stretch install image instead: https://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/

Configuration

Display

X won't work with the standard kernel in Jessie, see the note above.

Audio

/!\ ALSA "Auto-Mute" feature (turn off speakers automatically when headphones are plugged-in) is not working!

/!\ The microphone is not detected

{OK} Audio playback from speakers or headphones works OK. Audio quality from speakers is suprisingly good :)

Mouse

The Elan touchpad works OK.

Power Management

Suspend to RAM: OK

Suspend to disk (hibernation): not tested.

WiFi

Works OK.

If the debian-installer complains about "missing firmware", you can continue the installation using the ethernet card, or install the missing non-free firmware, following the instructions at http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/firmware/

After installation, you might want to install the firmware-realtek package, which contains the missing firmware (IIRC the WiFi card works even without the non-free firmware, maybe with sub-optimal performance?).

Hot keys

/!\ Fn+F1...Fn+F12 hot keys don't work
