misspell wireless as wirless...

Additional info:
* package version(s): archboot through 201008 to 201010
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Another suggestion:
In some machine, there is no cursor (software cursor) after booting in archboot.
I think we can put a line to display cursor: (i got it when strace vim)

echo -e "\033[?25h\033[?0c"

/usr/share/archboot/base/etc/profile should be a good place.
This task depends upon

- wireless is now fixed in git, thanks for reporting this.
- about your cursor issue, we don't use this in any file in arch.
Could you point me to some documentation where you got this? Thanks.

Dear Tobias, sorry, After I got the answer, i forget to paste the attachment.

I have a Dell 11z, when i boot into ramdisk (archboot), i find there is no cursor.
But after i run vim or zhcon (, i got the cursor.

then I use strace to find what vim/zhcon print to console..

At the end of strace-vim, something very strange:
write(1, "\33[?25h\33[?0c", 11) = 11
write(1, "\33[48;1H\33[K\33[48;1H", 17) = 17

After some test, i got "\33[?25h\33]?0c"...

Here is the documentation from kernel:;a=blob;f=Documentation/VGA-softcursor.txt

But i dont know why i need to echo 25h....
from vga-softcursor.txt, we should only need "\33]?0c".

If you cannot reproduce it, then you can just ignore it.
On my fellow's computer, soft-cursor works well without any patch.

My Graphic Card: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller
my fellow's card: a nvidia card. and i forget the exact model.

and to tobias, i have some other code to detect the usage of kms module.

if grep -E 'i915|nouveau|radeon|uvesafb' /proc/modules >/dev/null; then
return 0
for fb in i915 nouveau radeon; do
for pci in $(/sbin/modinfo -F alias $fb | sed -e 's/\*/\.&/g'); do
if cat /sys/bus/pci/devices/*/modalias | grep -i $pci >/dev/null; then
msg ":: Switching to $fb kms mode..."
/sbin/modprobe $fb modeset=1
return 0
