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

I installed the debian 6.0 squeeze, net install, booted from USB used ethernet. Worked first time around.

Display

Xorg worked out of the box.

Audio

Couldn't get ALSA working, I installed oss4 and the sound worked normally.

Having problem with audio jack, music comes out of both headphones and speakers.

Mouse

Touchpad isn't being detected as a touchpad, it is being seen as a normal mouse therefore two touch scrolling doesn't work.

Power Management

Some of the special function keys don't work, for example dimming the screen doesn't work. Volume control hot keys work, backlight hot key work.

WiFi

Works out of the box
