This wifi issue is interesting, because according to , it should work
out of the box on Fedora. Nevertheless, I think we should really try to
get it working...

I tried to find some information concerning the wifi chip they're using
on their website, but the PDF files I came across weren't really
helpful: "10/100 MB Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b/g (WiFi)" doesn't tell me a
lot. If anybody knows what chip they're using exactly or even can tell
me the driver it requires, please let me know.

Ok! So this is still occuring; I don't know, what might be causing this,
but Marco stated that he noticed this in jhbuild, too.
