[SOLVED] such devices work?

hello guys, I need your help ... how can I tell if all the devices of the laptop work? mine is a 250 hp g5 i7 .... for example I noticed that the WIiFi card does not work ..... there is a way to understand what are the recognized devices and which are not?

There is a guide for this on the Debian wiki:

https://wiki.debian.org/HowToIdentifyADevice/PCI

So you need to look at the output of:

lspci -nn

and take the two numbers inside the square brackets, for example:

03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection [8086:4227] (rev 02)

In this case, the identifying numbers are [8086:4227]

Simply enter these numbers (and the square brackets) along with the word "debian" into the search bar at https://www.startpage.com/

For my example, the first link in the list is https://wiki.debian.org/iwlegacy, which provides the correct instructions for that card smile

You can also use https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Main_Page

As HoaS suggested, the way to go is to enumerate all buses (PCI, PCIe, ISA, USB, i2s, whatever), look at each device found, research what it does, then find out if a driver's been loaded for it and whether the driver actually works, and if not, load the driver manually (autoload sometimes doesn't catch all needed modules!). Also check the syslog and kernel ringbuffer (/var/log/syslog, dmesg) for messages about found but initialized or failed devices.

An example for a device that is usually detected and available but not in use by default on mondern laptop computers because the driver is not being loaded by default is the trusted platform module (TPM), see e.g. here for some info on it.

To sum up: You need to take a long and hard look at what you got, and there is no very simple way to do it.

This seems to be the solution. You need another kernel.

But wait for HoaS! He has a better overview.  big_smile

Re: [SOLVED] such devices work?

OK, it looks like you have a post-Broadwell Intel chipset which will need this guide to work best:

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=1185

And the other key point is that the wireless (and bluetooth) card will not work with the backported kernel unless the backported firmware is also installed afterwards:

sudo apt install --target jessie-backports firmware-iwlwifi

Ooops, sorry!  ops

Try:

sudo apt install firmware-iwlwifi/jessie-backports

Or:

sudo apt-get install --target-release=jessie-backports firmware-iwlwifi

You can use:

lspci -k

This will list all of the "kernel drivers in use" wink

As long as a driver is listed for the device then it should work, provided that any necessary firmware is installed.

You can use this to check your wireless card, it should return a list of access points:

sudo ip link set wlan0 up && sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | grep SSID

No, it should be fine for normal upgrades.

If you decide to change the sources from jessie to stretch and `dist-upgrade` to the next stable release then you should read the notes carefully beforehand:
