Bunsenlabs on my Dell Latitude E5470.

I had some issues getting Bunsenlabs working on my new Latitude E5470. They are fixed now, so I just share how I did it because this might be useful for someone else.

There were two things that did not work:

  • Wifi (Intel Corporation Wireless 8260)

  • Second screen (via VGA cable) didn't show anything (Intel Corporation Device 191b (rev 06))

I fixed those issues using the 4.3.0 kernel from the backports:

sudo su

echo http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get -t jessie-backports install linux-image-amd64-4.3.0
apt-get -t jessie-backports install firmware-iwlwifi
apt-get -t jessie-backports install xserver-xorg-video-intel

exit

Reboot and you're done. I'm not sure how secure this 4.3.0 kernel from backports is. If someone has a solution that is more secure, please let me know :-)

Using kernels from backports is alright and by principle not less secure than the mainline kernel (which by itself doesn't even have upstream support anymore, it's been split of by Debian). It just might be that new bugs/regressions might surface with new kernels, a problem which can be mitigated by continously upgrading the system.


The show must go on.

Re: Bunsenlabs on my Dell Latitude E5470.

It may be better to install the kernel metapackage instead:

apt-get -t jessie-backports linux-image-amd64

https://packages.debian.org/jessie-back … mage-amd64

This will always pull in the newest kernel available from jessie-backports so you should get security fixes.

Thank you very much, and just in case it may be useful for others in the future, it worked perfectly well on my new Dell Latitude 5570.

Best...
