Hi again,

Bug #1616400: Running Lubuntu's Yakkety alternate i386 beta1 installer 


Please mark 'affects me too' if it does. I think we need that kind of 
confirmation. Otherwise there will be no debugging.

I arrive at a red screen with the text: "No network interfaces were 
found ..."

This is in a Toshiba laptop, that I have used for testing since 2013, 
and it works with the corresponding current Lubuntu desktop iso files. I 
expect the wired ethernet to work with the alternate iso file like it 
worked, when I tested with Yakkety alternate i386 alpha 2.

It works to continue the installation without network. The installed 
system boots, but the installed system fails to connect to the internet. 
I have not tried to fix it, just noticed that ethernet does not work 
'out of the box' as it should in the installed system.

Best regards
