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.

{i} = Configuration Required; X-( = Only works with a non-free driver and or firmware

Important Note

{X} Work in progress. Currently the installer crashes :-\

I start the daily installer using the following commands in the vendor U-Boot:

setenv tftpserverip 192.168.77.175

setenv fdt_addr     0x2000000
setenv kernel_addr  0x3000000
setenv ramdisk_addr 0x8000000

dhcp $kernel_addr $tftpserverip:debianinst-arm64-20200914/linux
dhcp $fdt_addr $tftpserverip:oftree-helios64.dtb
dhcp $ramdisk_addr $tftpserverip:debianinst-arm64-20200914/initrd.gz
setenv bootargs console=ttyS2,1500000
booti $kernel_addr $ramdisk_addr:$filesize $fdt_addr

Graphics hardware uses USB-C which doesn't have a mainline kernel driver (yet).

The machine has two network ports, the 1 Gbit port works fine, for the 2.5 Gbit port there is some mainline Linux support missing (works only somewhat and spams the kernel log).
