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 owners 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.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.

Important Note

There is currently a bug that stops Wheezy installation while network hardware detection.1
Workaround (WLAN won't work during installation): In installation menu choose Advanced options -> Expert Install and then Execute a shell. Type nano /bin/check-missing-firmware to insert exit 0 directly after line #!/bin/sh. Safe file, exit the shell and proceed with installation.

Configuration

Since kernel update linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64 (3.2.12-1) due to a ACPI PCI Hotplug issue the kernel fails to boot.2
To get your kernel booting hit e in grub menu to edit your preferred entry and add the kernel boot parameter pci=noacpi to line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=. If this works add the kernel boot parameter to the same line in file /etc/default/grub and run update-grub (you'll need root privileges for both actions) to make the change permanent.

Graphics

Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0116] (rev 09)
Supported by module intel. Works out of the box.

Audio

Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller [8086:1c20] (rev 04)
Supported by module snd_hda_intel. Works out of the box.

Mouse

Power Management

LAN network card

Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
Supported by module r8169. Works out of the box. However, Debian Installer will ask you to install non-free firmware (rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw) which is part of firmware-realtek. You won't need it.

WiFi

Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1030 [8086:008b] (rev 34)
Supported by module iwlwifi. Requires non-free firmware (iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode, iwlwifi-6000g2b-5.ucode) which can be provided by installing the firmware-iwlwifi package.
