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

Set the administrator password in the BIOS to make Secure Boot configuration become available. Disable Secure Boot.

Configuration

Power Management

Hibernation untested. Suspend works from GNOME menu, sudo pm-suspend, and lid-close. A of kernel 3.16, upon resume, USB HID devices seem to be placed in a low-power mode: keyboard backlight turns off until a key is pressed, mouse takes a few seconds to "wake up" before it responds. This can be worked around by unplugging and reconnecting these devices after resume.

WiFi

Wifi works after adding non-free repos and running sudo aptitude install firmware-iwlwifi.

Fingerprint Reader

Note: fingerprints are not keys, neither are they secret; you leave them everywhere you touch. Any fingerprint reader is a very weak (but convenient) form of security, so think carefully about the security/convenience trade-offs before using it.

The fingerprint reader is made by Validity Sensors, Inc. and attached to the USB bus internally. It is currently unsupported by libfprint. Payden Sutherland made significant progress on a libfprint 138a:0050 driver but sadly has passed away before completing and merging his changes upstream.
