Description Konstantin Ryabitsev 2005-05-19 18:24:05 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing over wireless that has no WEP, leaving the field blank will
produce a rather ugly error message: "failed to set wep key: Invalid argument"
that stays on the screen. The install proceeds just fine, but it might be
disorienting for a noveau user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's been around for a while. Present in current devel (as of May 19)

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put in the ESSID
2. Leave WEP key blank (no encryption on the network)
3. Watch an error message appear and remain for a while
