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

Configuration

Grub.cfg

According to this site, “these kernel parameters offer some speed optimizations and longer battery life. It is recommended to enable them”. Add the following kernel parameters to GRUB2 by editing the file /etc/default/grub on the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line.

add_efi_memmap i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 pcie_aspm=force drm.vblankoffdelay=1 i915.semaphores=1 

Display

The laptop uses an Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4000 that works with i915 driver. It has two outputs: one VGA (that works fine with the supplied adaptor) and one micro HDMI. I could only get it to work with the Asus micro HDMI to HDMI cable (tested it with another cable and it didn't work).

Audio

The Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller works with the kernel driver snd_hda_intel. The codec in use is the Realtek ALC269VB. The internal mic works out of the box, as well as the speakers. The laptop also has a combo jack (headphones output + mic input). To make it work, type the following code in a terminal window and hit 'Enter':

echo options snd-hda-intel model=laptop-dmic | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Then restart ALSA:

sudo alsa force-reload

I still need to test sound through the HDMI cable.
