After the system is installed, I still could not use the dongle. After connecting my android phone and usb tethering, I could install usb-modeswitch and use internet.

For Stretch, the plan is that we're only going to have a CD1 for Xfce
- a desktop installation that will fit on a single CD. If you want
Gnome, you'll need more packages, whether that's from a bigger medium
(DVD) or from the network.
