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.

Configuration

The trackpad did not work in the Debian Graphical Installer, I installed by plugging in an external mouse. After Debian/buster was installed, the trackpad worked well without any additional configuration.

WiFi

Requires non-free iwlwifi firmwares to work.
