This is the same issue as bug#701622, I'm carrying forward the same decision to accept this issue as a NTH. rather than continuing to track the change in the previous bug.
Comment 10 Julian Sikorski 2011-05-10 09:41:51 EDT
Well, I am not familiar with release criteria, but not working network equals to unable to install the system (unless I go for the full DVD, of course). Wired network is also broken, described in the bug 703289.
Comment 11 Julian Sikorski 2011-05-10 09:43:35 EDT
Moreover, if I get this right, if this hits F15 final it is over - afaik isos are never updated after the release.
Comment 12 James Laska 2011-05-10 09:58:58 EDT
Wireless networking during installation is not a release criteria.  Either way, if a fix is available in time, it will be included in Fedora 15.

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2011-05-10 11:19:01 EDT
lorax-0.4.6-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.

A custom-built boot.iso is available for you to verify whether this issue is resolved.


Can you download and boot the boot-x86_64.iso (if needed, a 32bit image will be arriving shortly) image and provide test feedback?
Comment 15 Julian Sikorski 2011-05-10 12:34:56 EDT
This file seems corrupted:
sha256sum boot-x86_64.iso 
771821b036834950d39d1971604ccd9b495546d8ad9e1ad6f8f9c0649ab80bde  boot-x86_64.iso

Your sha256sum is correct, the sha'sums were out of date.  I've updated that file now.
Comment 17 Julian Sikorski 2011-05-10 14:31:16 EDT
It works using iso provided by jlaska transferred to a USB stick using livecd-iso-to-disk (plain dd does not result in a working bootable USB for some reason).
Comment 18 James Laska 2011-05-10 14:57:38 EDT
Moving to VERIFIED based on feedback in comment#17, thanks Julian and Martin!

Comment 21 Wolnei Junior 2011-06-10 23:40:16 EDT
Problems still persist, detection only works with installation of the package iwl6000g2b-firmware.noarch

But the connection speed of this driver, dont work with 802.11n speeds.
