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.

Important Note

{i} This laptop comes with EFI Secure Boot enabled. It can easily be disabled in the BIOS (F1 at boot) by switching to the legacy BIOS mode. However, this will prevent Windows from booting, if you want to do a dual boot install. Windows and Debian both boot with secure boot disabled.

Configuration

Display

Works, no problem, but this laptop has an Optimus card.

Audio

Works, no problem.

Keyboard

Works, no problem.

Mouse

The Trackpad works, and supports multiple finger scrolling similar to the trackpad on Macbooks.

Power Management

Sleep on lid closed seems to work fine; haven't tested anything else yet.

WiFi

Works, requires non-free firmware (Atheros QCA6174)
