Package: debian-installer Severity: normal Dear Maintainer, This may be a bug in netcfg or debconf but because I encounter it during installation I will file it here. I have tried preseeding the name of my WiFi network (ESSID) by providing different combinations of values for netcfg/wireles_show_essids and netcfg/wireles_essid. | case no. | w_s_e | w_e | |----------+---------+---------| | 0 | -unset- | -unset- | | 1 | my_net | -unset- | | 2 | -unset- | my_net | | 3 | manual | my_net | 0. The default case. I am presented with a list and able to choose my_net on it. 1. I get the list of nets in the air with my_net highlighted. I still need to press [Enter] to continue (BUG). 2. Looks like 0. 3. Looks like 1, except the "Manual" option is highlighted on the list. (BUG) I expected that setting ESSID in preseed.cfg like d-i netcfg/wireless_essid string my_net would prevent presenting me a list of available networks and make the installer connect to the one I had set. If I were to guess what is wrong I'd say netcfg_wireless_show_essids() doesn't handle preseeding correctly like netcfg_get_interface() does. -- System Information: Debian Release: 8.5 APT prefers proposed-updates APT policy: (500, 'proposed-updates'), (500, 'stable') Architecture: i386 (i686) Kernel: Linux 3.16.0-4-586 Locale: LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=pl_PL.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8) Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/dash Init: systemd (via /run/systemd/system) -- Było mi bardzo miło. --- Rurku. --- ... >Łukasz< --- To dobrze, że mnie słuchasz.
