Description João Pinto 2017-02-18 08:59:47 UTC
I have installed with the "Minimal X Environment" option with the expectation to setup a different windows manager (cinammon) after installing the system. I only have Wifi connectivity, and the detection and system install from the Net worked fine with it.

After installing the system, I have attempted to configure the network from YaST, however I have found that wifi's core packages were missing: "iw", "wpa_supplicant". Using the Net install option, and with only wifi connectivity I was unable to setup the network. 

The wifi core packages should be installed when using the "Minimal X Environment" system.

Michal - does network proposal have such ability to mark required packages for working network?
Comment 2 Martin Vidner 2017-04-25 14:30:31 UTC
I'm not sure about the installation proposal, but the network code does declare the needed packages, including `iw` and `wpa_supplicant`:

This is really a patterns problem.
