Bug#378959: debian-installer: needs option to bypass network config dialog
d-i assumes that the user always wants to bring up a network connection
during installation. sometimes this is not desirable; for example
when using the rescue mode or when doing a cd or dvd install.
so the problem is that the d-i network config dialog forces the user to
select at least one of the network adapters to continue (cancel just
brings up the same dialog). to bypass network config, i have to select
one of the network interfaces, then wait for it to not configure. then
i can opt to skip network config. i suggest that there be a button
that allows the user to skip the network config from the network
interface selection dialog.
i used the latest etch d-i installer available at
thank you for your consideration.
