Re: How to: install Waldorf from the Debian netinstall

Wireless settings lost after install
Using the unofficial "firmware" iso, you can do the Debian netinstall via wireless with no problem, but I found that when logging in to the installed cli Debian system the wireless settings you put into the installer have been deleted from /etc/network/interfaces. (I think a cable connection is OK.)

Two options:
1)

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

and add the wireless network id and passphrase needed:

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
	wpa-ssid <network-id>
	wpa-psk  <passphrase>

2)
At end of netinstall, just before rebooting:

Alt+F2
Enter
cd /target/etc/network
cp interfaces interfaces-installer
Ctrl+D
Alt+F1

continue to reboot
login

cd /etc/network
sudo mv interfaces interfaces-orig
sudo mv interfaces-installer interfaces
sudo ifup wlan0

I'm not sure which one to recommend.
