Translation(s): none

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

{X} There are warnings out there about 'bricking' the computer if the BIOS is not updated before running linux. I'm not sure exactly what 'bricking' means in this context, but I started with a BIOS update.

{X} I tried to set this up with Mint's LMDE installer (lmde-3-201808-cinnamon-64bit.iso). It may not be exactly the same as results using Debian installer, but hopefully is helpful info anyway. By all means replace this with pure Debian info as it comes available.

{X} Mint's usual Ubuntu based edition does detect the WiFi and ethernet. After installing LMDE, I was able to boot from the Mint Ubuntu install media (I used linuxmint-19.1-cinnamon-64bit.iso), set up a chroot environment for the debian install, fix /etc/resolv.conf, and then use the working network environment from this boot media to update/install the Debian system via apt. This is a lot easier than trying to update using apt-offline.

{X} Disable display sleep while running from the install media if there's any chance that the system might sit long enough for the screen to go to sleep. Otherwise the display will not wake up again.

Configuration

Display

The display works while it's on, but if for any reason it turns off, then it stays black thereafter, requiring a reboot to fix it.

Audio

Seems OK, but I haven't tested this much.

Mouse

Trackpad and pointer work fine.

Power Management

  • (not covered yet)

Hibernate works. Suspend doesn't work, but I suspect this is not more than the Display sleep bug (see display).

WiFi

Not working

Modem

  • (not covered yet)
