There is a 'liveinst' command that should be used to run the live installer.

Exactly, this is a duplicate. Steve, could you please help with the debugging in the bug 893218? It definitely doesn't happen every time, so steps to reproduce would be really appreciated.

seen with dd USB of Mate-live Cd :
 http://bitchx.ca/Image-FedoraMateCompiz.iso
:fails with this error if no network connection.
:Works fine if reboot with wired connection present.
:Liveinst (Install to Hard disk) Works in VirtualBox install as there is a wired connection
