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.

Important Note

Configuration

Display

Audio

Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller worked out of the box

Mouse

Out of the box, the touchpad did not work. To get it work, I had to add a kernel configuration option :

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet i8042.notimeout"

See bug 740649.

The touchpad is recognized as a psmouse :

$ xinput 
⎡ Virtual core pointer                          id=2    [master pointer  (3)]

Power Management

Fot the power management to work correctly, you will need to use systemd instead of sysvinit.

sudo aptitude install systemd-sysv

WiFi

Install the firmware-iwlwifi firmware package from non-free.
