Submission + - Installing Debian Wheezy (7.0) Linux on the Chromebook Pixel (

hawkeyeMI writes: "When Google launched the Chromebook Pixel, it was not long before people started trying to boot normal Linux distributions on it. With Linus Torvalds taking an interest, patches were quickly merged into the Linux git repository, and I continue building the latest version and collecting fixes from elsewhere. I've written up the steps required to get an almost-fully-functional pixel running Debian Wheezy. As of today, I've incorporated fixes that eliminate the audio popping and volume control problems. The only real remaining problem I have is that I can't yet control the keyboard backlight, although I've compiled and loaded a module that is supposed to control it. I'd love it if a Slashdotter more adept than me at kernel hacking could sort that one out."
