As the bug report explains, Calamares has no way to deal with installing third-party proprietary drivers. This is ultimately very urgent because those users with graphics chips and wireless cards that require proprietary/third-party drivers in order to function at all have useless installs until those driver issues are resolved. It's especially poignant for those that have no network because resolving the issue (with ubuntu-drivers) is impossible.
We're going to need:
- a new module
- a warning in the installer if no network is available
- a list of common drivers to seed to ensure most folks, even without internet, are taken care of
This should be built with extensibility in mind as the module could be used for other things, such as allow for custom install options.
