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} IRQ9 is disabled by the kernel on most boots, causing some ACPI functions to not work. It seems like this could be due to a bug in Lenovo's firmware. This may cause issues in booting or other stability issues, but my system is still generally useable. I think this is the cause of the laptop hotkeys not working. As of writing this, there's not any workaround. See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207749 for more information.

{i} I installed this using the unofficial non-free live cd image created by the Debian CD team. Wi-fi worked during the installer. The official images could lack some firmware needed for wi-fi etc.

Configuration

Display

Audio

Mouse

Due to firmware issues, the touchpad may not be detected by default. This can be resolved by adding 'pci=nocrs' to the boot parameters in /etc/default/grub:

# ...

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
# Add 'pci=nocrs' to fix touchpad
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet pci=nocrs"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

# ...

Then run update-grub as root.
