*Yakkety i386 beta 1*

A new mini.iso file was uploaded after we tested it yesterday. I think 
it contains the current debian installer.

$ ls -l mini.iso
-rw-rw-r-- 1 nio nio 50331648 aug 25 20:35 mini.iso
$ md5sum mini.iso
9a82696d120d55ac15ccbdc32545c240  mini.iso

I created a mini.iso system from it, and it works for me, for example 
thernet works out of the box. I installed lubuntu-desktop, and rebooted.

Lubuntu created this way works like when installed via the Lubuntu 
Alternate iso file. In nm-applet the options about wired network is 
greyed out, but the wired network works, and it is possible to connect 
via wifi.


I tested again to install Lubuntu from the Lubuntu desktop beta1 iso 
file, manual selection of partitions 'Something else'. The installation 
was successful. In nm-applet the options about wired network are 
available (not greyed out).

I updated & dist-upgraded this installed system and rebooted. The 
network (wired and wireless) works, and in nm-applet the options about 
wired network are still available (not greyed out).


So there is a difference between the behaviour of the installed system 
between Lubuntu installed via the debian installer (alternate and mini) 
and via ubiquity (desktop).

Best regards
