rvp you have a working wireless in NetBSD, right? Does sysinst detect and configure it?
Yes, I do have a working wireless. It works as good as on Linux and, as on Linux I just use wpa_supplicant, no bullshit network managers.
No, sysinst detects the interface but, it won't run automatic configuration. What I usually do is to install with a internet cable connected and automatic configure the wired connection during install.
After that, I fetch all the wireless config files from my git repository using
ftp, shutdown, unplug the internet cable and power on. Et voilá, wireless is up 🙂
You can do this during install, though. Exit the installer and drop to a shell, configure the wireless interface and when you're done return to the installer. Then you can let dhcp run it's auto configuration.
But, you will have to remember all the details, what files you need to edit and use plain
vi to do this. I just think it's easier to do it like I do 😉
