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.

Important Note

Be sure to either set the service partition to 'Disabled' in the BIOS if you are overwriting it with Debian, otherwise grub will not be able to access it to load the boot configuration or the kernel.

Configuration

Display

Works out of the box, with accelerated OpenGL. glxgears gets about 700 FPS.

Audio

Works out of the box.

Mouse

Trackpoint & trackpad work out of the box.

Power Management

Hibernate and suspend work out of the box.

WiFi

It uses an Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B. Unfortunately you need to install firmware-ipw2x00 from non-free.

Modem
