Fuck this shit senpai!!!!
How the fuck you guys like doing this shit? I can't imagine the people that actually install Gentoo and other shit from the ground up.
AINT NO BODY GOT TIME FO DAT!!
add this to your /etc/apt/sources.listdeb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
then runsudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install iwlwifi
then just delete your debian partition and go back to windows, because you're clearly too stupid to use linux
Add this after main
I have no idea what wifi hardware is in the T400, but I know I had to download Centrino firmware from Intel for my T420. Toss that in /lib/firmware
I use ifuse to access my iPhone.
Debian is great. It's pretty solid, but their goal is to provide 100% open source software out of the gate. If you want to taint her with Steam, Skype, Netflix (needs Chrome), or proprietary firmware, you have to do it yourself.
i wonder why billions of devices around the globe run linux...?
Billions of servers, embedded devices, set top boxes, car computers, monitors, routers, switches, satellites, and god knows what else?
If you want to learn linux, learn to use it properly, as a server that can be stripped down to the kernel + a few services for maximum stability and simplicity.
Linux desktop is a joke and most likely always will be because autist maintainers' real goals are not a stable usable OS, but a checkmark on their resume or for ePeen.
You're gonna need to be a lot more specific with things in the future if you want useful help. If a device isn't working use lspci or lsusb to get a listing and paste the output for that particular piece of hardware into Google. dmesg can also be very useful for diagnosing problems. Your hand isn't going to be held for any distribution when the SHTF. You have to realize things work differently than Windows. Linus isn't going to get out of his basement, hop in his car, and drive over to some company to threaten their livelihood because they didn't do some or any legwork in making sure everything just werks. You're going to run into the hardware support issue with OSX as well for that matter.
Its a freetard distro.
Ubuntu has a wider acceptance for a lot of devices. BEcause is not autistic enough to not include nonfree software in their main repos (optional)
debian is best used on servers and well supported ancient-tier hardware
same here, debian is the most based distro
literally just install and enjoy, no bloatware shit like ubuntu and no broken shit like arch
literally everything you google about linux you can use because debian is the basis of almost every distro
no worries about companies like canonical randomly fucking it up at any given time
>There isnt a thing on it you couldnt do on windows a lot more comfortable and stable
You will have a hard time administrating unix/linux servers from within Windows. Sure it works, but its really experience shitty in general.
I can't imagine how Posix programming on Windows is supposed to be "much more comfortable" than on an actual Posix system. The same applies to web development and basically any other form of development that doesn't target Windows itself.
