Hi all,
can you change the installer steps and check for wifi at first and thenformat the disks?
I inserted the usb stick and started the installation only to see thatno wifi was discovered. Sadly the disks now are formatted and I have toreinstall my old OS.

LGTM! Please add “Fixes http://bugs.gnu.org/35901.” in the log.
Should we also move “Network selection” above “Hostname”?
Thanks,Ludo’.

I think the argument should perhaps be ‘input-visibility-checkbox?’,otherwise I find it a bit unclear (both before and after the patchactually.)
Other than that LGTM, thank you!

Oh, bugger. This message got lost in my messy box (it floated back to the top when I closed the bug). Sorry about that.

Perhaps! I'll fire up the installer again and see if anything new seems odd/out of place after these few months.
Kind regards,
