The way we build the ISO and the way ubiquity works what is installed in the ISO ends up installed. I have wondered if there is any way to do stuff like this without having to run some uninstall script on the first boot of the installed system.
given there are quite a few issues with broadcom wifi card - is there value in shipping the new distro (for post installation inclusion) with firmware-b43-installer (not sure if this requires an active network connection to run though so may be non starter anyhow?) and & linux-firmware too - to aid "offline" broadcom wifi setup, or is this simply muddying the distro maintainability waters unnecessarily without much gain (addressing edge cases)?
At one time Bodhi had this, back in the BL1.x days. There is a repo of a sort on the ISO, in a folder called dists. One could in fact install the broadcom driver from that repo, but there are some technical problems with making the ISO that are unsolved at the moment. So it would be a little bit of work to do so with the current ISO or the BL5.x ISOs. I currently have 6 outstanding issues that in a ideal world I would like to solve, that being one of them. But I also have to balance that with time constants. I was aware of the issue when I released BL 5.1 and was aware of the issue with Jeffs prior releases. But I did not investigate it with Jeffs releases and with the release of 5.1 I found myself spend too much time unfruitly trying to solve it, so I released it anyway with the issue still present. So i can make no promises the issue will be resolved on the actual release of 6.0.
This is a learn as you experience for me and contrary to public opinion I don't know everything lol
