FS#679 - live mode not detecting mouse ow wifi adaptor

Mouse and wifi (Intel® Dual-Band Wireless-AC 8265?) not being detected (in live move) on Dell Latitude 7480 i7
a usb mouse plugged into the laptop is a work around.

The startup menus (keyboard settings etc) are not usable with just the keyboard, you need a mouse at this stage to start the distro

Reason for closing:  Fixed

Unfortunately these drivers cannot be updated before the release of 3.0, they will be after, in the next beta's

Are these drivers within a newer kernel or a separate package .. I have got a number of users to try on their newer laptops (dell) and they have the same issue. I would rather not wait to after release .. could be while :) whats involved it adding the mouse and wifi support? ?


I tried but unfortunately there's dependencies on new kernels that makes it impossible to be used in the actual versions, sadly
