There's a lag time between these things. Problems don't get fixed
instantly (not a criticism) but others who want to install a given
system will decide very quickly not to bother if Google returns no
useful results when things don't work out of the box. Hence both are
appropriate - the answer is not always "file a bug" without mention.
