Summary0000058: support for wireless netword interfaces
DescriptionThere should be support for the most popular wireless network interfaces on the CD, as without these it can be hard for a user to download and install support for the same interfaces, if that interface is the only network interface.
Additional InformationMy suggestion is to, at least, include ndiswrapper. Perhaps even include some firmware packages, such as the intel 2100 and 2200.
Also include software for WPA encrypted networks. WPA_supplicant works (I use it), perhaps look into NetworkManager.

I would recommend to include the kernel sources in a release so users can bring driver sources to the install.

I concur with this (in fact, BOTH ideas). Since I have a laptop that I'd like to use Gobo with, and it supports an Orinoco card, I too must recompile the kernel. But to do that, I need to get the kernel sources, and, right now, that requires a network or a USB interface. Pretty inconvenient. :)

Somewhat OT, but as the question was asked: the kernel sources will be included in the Live-CD. It was just missed out on 013.

This request seems to be rather popular, on IRC every now and then people ask for that. :)

Moved to 015 development to open up for discussion about what firmware to include on CD.
