How to install Debian Wheezy on the Acer C7 Chromebook?
 
How can I install Debian Wheezy on the Acer C7 Chromebook?
All the instuctions I find on the internet seem to be for Ubuntu on the C7 or for installing Debian on the ARM Chromebooks.

I would much prefer Debian on my C7.
Regards,
Paul Harper

It's an Intel x86 CPU, so I would try following the instructions for
Ubuntu until you can put an image on the SSD, and then put in a Debian
image instead.

The Acer C7 is one of the models with a hard drive rather than an
SSD.

I did find this set of instructions but it is for Squeeze and for
the Samsung Series 5.

Mr Brock Tice has an excellent page on how to install Wheezy on the
Chromebook Pixel here:




http://blog.brocktice.com/2013/03/09/running-debian-wheezy-7-0-on-the-chromebook-pixel/



But it appears the hardware is too different.





There is a reference to the Acer C7 in the Linux Kernel 3.9 which
leads me to believe it should be possible to install.

I am amazed that nobody seems to have installed Wheezy on the Acer
C7 seeing how cheap it is. Or more likely they have it is not
documented.



It would be good to get the method documented on

http://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Acer



The Acer C7 is a nice affordable laptop once it has Linux on it.



For the moment I am running Ubuntu 12.04.

If you send me one I'll work on it and document it.

Otherwise -- why don't you experiment and try it yourself?
debootstrap is well documented.
