Subject: devuan-installer: beta 3 server iso does not load firmware-iwlwifi
Date: Sat, 16 May 2020 17:17:20 +0900 (JST)
Package: devuan-installer
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I installed Devuan by Beta 3 server iso image released on May 2020.
My laptop needs firmware-iwlwifi package to use its built-in wifi. says:
### Non-free firmware

All Devuan 3 Beowulf install media make non-free firmware packages
available at install time. These are only installed if your networking
hardware requires them in order to function. You can avoid the
automatic installation of non-free firmware by selecting the
"Expert install" option in the installation menu.

But firmware-iwlwifi package is not installed on my laptop
by beta3 server iso.
The wifi is unavailable at the installation, and I had to use Ethernet.

Best regards, Ryutaroh Matsumoto
