Re: Probleme with the firmware-iwlwifi

I found another bug. If the installer ask to install firmware and you not 
insert the usb stick, but you press enter the massage comes agnain 
but it double the output wich firmware it need. Make the procudeur 10 
or 20 times an see the output message.

 Happy Hoildays
