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.

Configuration

This computer can be purchased in one of the following video adapter :

Display

Xorg

The graphic adapter is an "Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)"
(device_identifier/PCI 8086:2592)

Xwindow was properly configured automatically (using Driver "i810").

OpenGL

Hardware accelerated OpenGL works out of the box.

Switching to External Screen

Use a RandR tool, like gnome's scren resolution or xrandr.

Audio / Intel hda 82801G

Device is a "Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller"

(device_identifier/PCI 8086:24c5)

Which uses "Intel HDA driver" module : snd_intel8x0

it was configured properly out of the box.

Keyboard

The Thinkpad hotkeys aren't all handled the same way : Some are captured as ACPI, some aren't.
