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 owner 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.

Models covered
Asus X54C 4GB RAM 320GB HD Intel Core i3

Overall Status

Please note: LAN network card not detected unless wheezy beta4 net installer CD was used. All subsequent tests were done using wheezy.

Important Note

{X} LAN network only detected with wheezy beta4 net installer CD, i.e. not standard stable

Configuration

Display

VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller

Kernel module i915

Audio

Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller

Note that I uninstall OSS, PulseAudio etc., and only use ALSA.

Kernel module snd_hda_intel

Mouse

Trackpad functions as expected, including 2-finger scrolling

Power Management

Suspend and hibernate function correctly

WiFi

Works using wicd, wpa_supplicant and atl1c kernel module. Only (very minor) quirk is that the WiFi LED doesn't light.
