D'oh! That seems to lead to something. A Fedora-specific tool could
really know about "rawhide" and tell about --nogpgcheck being needed.

Brand-new ticket, yes, that seems to be the issue.
One can never be sure due to mirror servers that may or may not
carry the stuff that's needed.

 -> English
     (because the translation could be out-of-date, it doesn't mention
	  fedup at all, and the links to koji aren't fast either when showing
	  the list of images to download - a slow koji query!)

      (it mentions --nogpg and an --instrepo somewhere in the details,
	   it could be even easier!)


    -> LiveCD Builds (rawhide)
