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.

Models covered
HP Pavilion DV6 6023TX

options :
- Video card Integrated Intel Sandybridge and AMD/ATI Radeon HD6700M
- Screen size 15.6" wide
- Wireless card Intel Centrino Wireless-N
- Ethernet card r8169 Gigabit Ethernet
- 4 GB of memory, 640GB harddisk with DVD read/writer
- Fingerprint reader
- HP Truevision webcam
- Accelerometer

Overall Status

Installs with no major problems but requires some manual work to get some features working the best.

Important Note

{X} There is currently bug http://bugs.debian.org/630345 for the Xorg Radeon server. The standard server will crash if you enable it.

Configuration

Display / Integrated Intel

The Integrated non-3D Intel video card works with no xorg.conf or any configuration at all. It is a rather simple video card but works fine for 2D work.

Display / Discrete ATI

The ATI/AMD Radeon HD6700M requires the non-free drivers direct from AMD to work. The current Debian fglrx-driver packages (also non-free) are version 11.4 and you will need at a minimum version 11.5 to work. Compiling on a Debian stock kernel also requires the BLK patch for the driver to compile.

xorg.conf file is very simple, with just the following for the ATI card:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card1"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Audio

Integrated Intel PCH chipset - no issues and worked first time.

Mouse

Syntaptics touchpad worked with no configuration or issues.

Power Management

WiFi

Requires the non-free firmware. Chip is a standard iwlagn device with PCI ID 8086:0084
