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.

Configuration

Display

The display adapter is

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobilitiy Radeon HD 3400 Series

Surprisingly (or not ?), the radeonhd driver gave me a grey jittery screen. But it works with the ati driver. I can get KWin's compositing features through XRender, but no ?OpenGl with this driver.

Audio

The sound adapter is

01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV620 Audio device [Radeon HD 34xx Series]

It works out of the box with the snd-hda-intel kernel module.

Mouse (Touch Pad)

Works out of the box.

Power Management

Hibernation and suspend works out of the box.

WiFi

The Wifi adapter is

0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 USB Controller (rev 01)

This device is not yet suppported by the b43 module, I could get it working by using ndiswrapper with the bcmwl5.inf file provided in this archive (see the ndiswrapper wiki).

There is official driver avaible at broadcom official page. You can also install it using module-assistant. Module name is wl.

Just follow these steps:

aptitude install broadcom-sta-source
m-a a-i broadcom-sta-source

Modem
