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

If you are planning on using an Ultradock with external monitors, make sure you upgrade the dock firmware in Windows before installing Debian, otherwise, you may run into frozen display problems.

Also before installing Debian, I disabled these two things in the BIOS:

Configuration

Display

Audio

Mouse

Power Management

WiFi

Wireless did not work out-of-the box, but required installation of the non-free Debian package firmware-iwlwifi.
