Important Note

Debian jessie (or newer) is needed. It is recommended to use unofficial non-free images including firmware.

Netbook tested on Debian buster.

WiFi

If you used unofficial non-free images including firmware, the WiFi should work.

If not, download the package firmware-misc-nonfree in another machine and install it via dpkg, as this is the only means of networking of this laptop. The WiFi card is a Ralink RT3090 but Debian uses RT2860 driver.

You need to address this before installing any packages, such as those mentioned in the sections below.

Display

Brightness need to set on keyboard hotkey. Setting brightness on settings will not work.

Audio

Audio will work on device, you not need to modify sound drivers.

Mouse

The touchpad should work after install. But, touchpad is not working on DebianInstaller. However, you can connect USB mouse or install with keyboard.

Optimizations

It is recommended to install packages such as tlp and thermald, to help saving battery power.

You can compress the RAM to help save a little using zram-config (not avaliable in Debian, but the Ubuntu package works). Download zram-config_0.5_all.deb from Ubuntu and install it via sudo dpkg -i zram-config_0.5_all.deb.

Hibernation

Hibernation will not supported. If you attempt to hibernate, computer will hibernate but if you power on the machine, computer says Resuming from hibernation but computer reboots and says /dev/sdX: recovering journal and boots up normally.
