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

Works out of the box. Screen rotation works fine with xrandr, and the xsetwacom tool can be used to rotate the stylus.

Audio

Works out of the box.

Mouse and Tablet

Works out of the box.

Power Management

Works out of the box using pm-utils.

CPU Temperature

Put coretemp in /etc/modules for CPU temperature monitoring. After this, you can view CPU temperature in gkrellm (requires package gkrellm), or by typing sensors (requires package lm-sensors).

WiFi

Open source, in kernel driver (requires firmware)

Do aptitude install b43-fwcutter. It will install the required firmware, automatically and get wireless running.

{X} This has extremely poor performance (2009-12-27, 2.6.31-1-amd64)! My wireless speeds often drop to 1MB/s even when I'm sitting right next to the wireless hot spot.
{OK} Monitor/master mode are supported.

Closed source drivers from Broadcom

aptitude install module-assistant
m-a a-i broadcom_sta

You also need to stop ssb and b43 from loading. You can (as root, from shell)

modprobe -rv b43 ssb
modprobe -iv wl

before you use this. Alternately, you can blacklist these modules automatically. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, and add the lines

blacklist input-polldev
blacklist rfkill-input
blacklist b43
blacklist ssb

at the end. Then regenerate your initrd (as root, from shell)

depmod -a
update-initramfs -u -k all

{OK} This gives good performance in managed mode (i.e. when connecting to hot-spots).
{X} Monitor / AP mode don't work.

Windows drivers

aptitude install module-assistant
m-a a-i ndiswrapper

Then get the driver from the HP website, and

aptitude install cabextract
cabextract sp39912.exe
ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf

[?] Untested. I had this working well in Gentoo (32bit), with good performance. I haven't tested it on my Debian box.
{X} Monitor / AP mode don't work.

Modem

Untested.

Fixing the DSDT

There are two warnings generated when I recompiled the DSDT of this machine. The system worked fine (on a 2.6.31 based kernel) without overriding the DSDT (however on older kernels, it was critical to fix your DSDT).

If you want to override your DSDT, see Overriding your DSDT on the Debian Wiki for instructions, and use this patch to fix your stock DSDT.
