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

Configuration

Display

Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27ae] (rev 03)

3d - tested with 'stellarium' - seems to work out of the box. xrandr - seems to work out of the box too (lxde video resolution resize works)

Audio

Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller [8086:27d8] (rev 02)

Configured automatically, just worked. Speaker sound not brilliant, but usable. Headphone sound is fine, but initially plugging in headphones did not mute the speaker.

Some fine tuning to the volume may be required, too loud by default.

Mouse

The touchpad is supported, very responsive. The righthand side allows vertical scrolling. This can get annoying at times.

Hotkeys

These don't work out of the box.

Power Management

Fn+<ESC> works - you may need hotkey-setup installed.

WiFi

02:00.0 0200: 168c:001c (rev 01)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

The device is recognized by the 2.6.26-2 kernel (driver ath5k-pci). I can set SSID and WEP key, but can't get it to associate with anything.
