Created attachment 767993 [details]

The anaconda kickstart scripts in v19 NO longer function. Using the latest netinst.iso on a cd, that media checks ok, it stops with a GUI message "Error setting up software source". It should find the "Closest mirror", but, never does find any. Entering various VALID ftp/http urls does not help. My ks.cfg is attached. This ks.cfg has worked perfectly hundreds of times using v18 in the last 6 months.

I have tried the installation repeatedly today, 2013 July 2, and always get the same failure message.

My boot prompt command is

     linux ks=hd:sda2:/fedora/ks.cfg

that resides in an ext4 partition and has always been reliable.
