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.

Configuration

Install the packages: amd64-microcode linux-image-5.10.0-5-amd64 xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu nvme-cli

Video

If you are experiencing screen tearing or need more details see AtiHowTo

External monitors

Driving external monitors at full resolution and refresh rate can be tricky. See https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/en/Infos/Help-Support/Help-for-my-device/TUXEDO-Pulse-series/TUXEDO-Pulse-15/Stable-connection-of-4K-monitors-via-HDMI.tuxedo

To prevent screen tearing on an external monitor:

xrandr --output HDMI-A-0 --set TearFree on

Audio

Configured to use PipeWire as a substitute for PulseAudio/JACK/ALSA: the volume on the right channel on the headphones slowly fades in and out. Sometimes the sound is distorted.

Power Management

Suspend does not work reliably after installation.

Fan control is provided by the tuxedo-io tool that comes in https://github.com/tuxedocomputers/tuxedo-keyboard

NVMe drive

smartd generates misleading warnings e.g.: "Device: /dev/nvme0, number of Error Log entries increased from 30 to 32"

Use nvme instead:

sudo nvme error-log /dev/nvme0
