(!) Discussion

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 owner 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.

Models covered
Sony Vaio VPC EB1J1E
Other Sony Vaio E series (which may be quite similar)

This model options :
- Intel Video card (HDMI and VGA output)
- Screen size 15.5" wide
- Wireless card Atheros AR9285
- 320GB hard-disk, 4GB RAM
- Card Reader (SD and memory stick)

Important Note

The Marvell 88E8059 PCI-E gigabit Ethernet controller is supported by the ?sky2 driver in Debian 2.6.32 kernel images (571526).

{X} Sound not working by default (driver snd-hda-intel up and working, but no sound at all). Some progress with latest git, model=generic and kernel 2.6.33, see https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=4934

{X} Blank screen when using intel driver with 2.6.32, use xorg vesa driver with it. Fixed in 2.6.33 with latest intel driver, backlight setting too.
