Description Need Real Name 2012-05-20 04:38:24 EDT
Installation of F16, F17beta, etc DVD randomly fails.
The problem is in repository.
anaconda tries to access repository at https://.... URL
The problem is than not all mirrors work at https://...

A workaround is to edit repository list 
and replace https:// by http:// 
then installation goes OK. 

Just make sure that all mirrors support https://
or, another option, replace https:// by http://

As it stays now - installation randomly fails 
depending on what repository mirror is used.

Logs attached, but they are irrelevant. 
As I stated before - if a mirror does not support 
https:// installation would fail
and not try a different mirror

So the mirror does support it, but occasionally has too many connections or some other reason for rejecting.  We can't do much about that.
