Installation

There are official instructions on how to install Debian on http://wiki.debian.org/DebianOnFreeRunner, and the announcement.

Previous, partly now outdated information on how to install Debian manually has been moved to Manual Debian.

Suspend

To make suspend available you have to install apmd:

apt-get install apmd

After that you can suspend your phone with:

apm -s

and make it wake up again with pressing the power button.

Wuth 06:28, 17 August 2008 (UTC): I found that apmd was already installed by using the official debian installation procedure, but that the kernel didn't support apm. I haven't yet resolved this issue.

Time

The default time zone is UTC. Reconfigure it by running

# dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Set the clock manual using, e.g.

# date -s 00:33

That's probably not sufficient to keep the clock accurate. It might be worth configuring some form of NTP.

Time

The default time zone is UTC. Reconfigure it by running

# dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Set the clock manual using, e.g.

# date -s 00:33

That's probably not sufficient to keep the clock accurate. It might be worth configuring some form of NTP.
