(Note: not everything is working, but i can say im writing this now from debian on the T09)
Okay, so, i've had a t09 laying around, and this time i decided i would try out linux on the box and i must say not all components are working but it is working pretty awesome, even better than windows for me!
(Also a wired connection is required, since wifi isn't working)
so lets start! first of all we need rufus and the ubilinux iso developed by up board team.
so first launch up rufus and select the ISO, set the partition scheme to mbr partition scheme for uefi & Select ISO mode (DD mode wont work)
Now, when you've finished creating the USB installer, shut down the device, plug it in and start while pressing F7 or DEL, if boot manager appears select the USB, if BIOS appears just go to the end (or almost) of the tabs and select boot override for the usb.
When the USB device has loaded, just install as normally,when finished it will try to boot into the desktop for the first time, now it might hang, just disconnect mouse, keyboard & ethernet adapter and restart, when booted to the login screen you can connect the mouse, keyboard & ethernet again!
Now, if you've encountered one of the following problems, you'll have to add some boot parameters to the grub loader
- Random mouse freezes
- Audio stutter while video playback
- USB disconnects while video playback
You could easily solve them by following my steps! Okey so lets start! hit WIN + R or just launch a terminal and do the following:
^^ Will request the terminal to run as root, it will ask you for a password!
Okey, when you've succesfully requested root acces you want to open the following file with nano editor.
^^When opened the file search for "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="
and add the following parameter to it:
When done, the line should look like the following:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet intel_idle.max_cstate=1 usbcore.autosuspend=1 intel_pstate=disable"
Now to save the file hit CTRL + O press enter and exit the terminal.
Also i think there's a problem with chromium browser, not sure, but if you notice issues with HW acceleration in chrome then please uninstall it!
run terminal as root and run:
apt-get remove chromium
PS: i'll advise you to install firefox browser, working perfectly, youtube, sound (no stutter) flash games, unity games! can be easily installed from synaptic packetmanager!
