This page is for those people trying to install and configure Debian on a Sony Vaio PCG-?GRZ610. My hope is that this page will become more useful as it evolves. Any contructive input will be greatly appreciated.
07/18/04 Intalled using the Debian Sarge net installer CD iso (1). I used one of the daily CD images (20040718 for i386) in order to take advantage of the latest changes. I'm now running a LILO dual boot system with 'Linux vaio 2.4.26-1-386 #2 Sat May 1 16:31:24 EST 2004 i686 GNU/Linux'. The new installer seems to have detected most of the hardware correctly. At the moment I highly recommend this approach.
Sound works, mousepad works.
Warning! Don't run dselect on the unstable feed unless you know what you are doing. I ran deselect pointing to the unstable feed in order to update the installation and for some reason LILO got corrupted.
