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.

Important Note

The RC1 installer with non-free firmware provides the non-free iwlwifi driver for the intel wireless card.

The installer hangs when requesting IPv6 address from DHCP server. See Bug #768188 for work around.

Configuration

After reading the Multi HDD/SSD article, I partitioned the 1TB HDD / 16GB SSD as follows:

Power Management

Suspend to ram works out of the box. Have not tried hibernate

WiFi

Wifi worked out of the box with non-free firmware netinstall debian image

Keyboard

The backslash-pipe key was mapped to greater-than/less-than keys. To fix this, edit /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes/evdev and change <BKSL>=51 to <BKSL>=94

Graphics

The free nouveau works out of the box. To use the NVIDIA ?GeForce GPU, install the proprietary Nvidia driver and bumblebee. Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf and do not run nvidia-xconfig
