When/where the regulatory domain is intended to be setup ?
No, there is no such place yet.
If I set up it manually with "iw reg set" this setting is lost after a reboot. So it seems that a startup script needs to set the regulatory domain after every reboot, if you want full WLAN function after a reboot. Why is the regulatory.bin file installed in /usr/lib and iw in/usr/sbin, whereas the other parts of the framework are living in / ? If you want to mount /usr over a WLAN connection, this will restrict you to use channels 1-11 for that WLAN .
One other question: Are these packages installed by default if needed?
No, not yet. I've packaged them for factory only one or two weeks ago.
I run zypper dup last week and those packages were not installed at all, it seems there are some missing dependencies...
I wouldn't say missing dependencies. CRDA + wireless-regdb are needed by the kernel but I don't think we want the kernel to depend on a user space program. Furthermore the wireless satck will still be functional without CRDA. Maybe all three packages should be installed as part of the base system?
