Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 530460
Fedora 12 Beta cannot network install from WLAN
Last modified: 2009-10-26 15:27:35 EDT
During a network install (eg using the boot.iso image) of Fedora 12 Beta the system will ask for a network interface to be started - this is fine with a wired network, however the installer will offer "wlan0" if the computer has a wireless interface available.
Unfortunately choosing the wireless interface doesn't work - no SSID or encryption settings are asked for so not surprisingly DHCP fails.
This would obviously be a useful way of installing on a laptop.
