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

Install at least kernel 3.8.3 (at the moment (April 2013) in experimental). With wheezy kernel, laptop hang. Before that that kernel no card reader is correctly managed.

Installation was fine with wheezy RC1. I have now Sid.

Configuration

Display

No xorg.conf modification (1366x768 resolution)

Audio

Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 (works out of the box)

Mouse

?TouchPad works

Power Management

I didn't use it. With a normal use, laptop will go low in battery in two hours.

WiFi

Works out of the box

FingerPrint

I didn't configure/use it
