That one was https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1192702 , it
was rapidly reported in about five different ways and was fixed
Today's - 2015-02-18 - F22 nightlies seem not to have any anaconda
showstoppers, so for now probably using one of them is the best way to
install F22. As today was 'nominated' as a release validation event
you can find a handy download table here:
(the table's generated from fedfind data, you can find the same links
with 'fedfind images --release 22 --compose 20150218').
You can use the boot.iso , but note that using that will by default
use the repos from the development/22 tree, so whether it works for a
given package set on a given day will depend on whether there are any
dependency issues in those packages on that day - on the one hand if
there are dep issues in the repo on one day they might be fixed the
next day, on the other hand just because it works today doesn't mean
it'll work tomorrow...
If you want a reliable result, use a live nightly, because those have
their packages baked in, they don't use the remote repos. So, give the
Workstation nightly a shot. According to
#Default_boot_and_install , it works.
In general, you can always visit the
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Results:Current_Installation_Test redirect to find out the status of the last compose that was 'nominated' for
validation testing, and (as of a week ago or so) a table of download
links for it. We're working on some stuff that should let us know the
status of each nightly Rawhide and Branched compose (not just composes
'nominated' for testing), but it's not quite ready for primetime yet.
We also got most Rawhide nightly live images for 02-18 (no boot.iso's
due to some yum/dnf issues), though after Branch point, Rawhide images
don't get regular testing (yet). But if you want to try going straight
to Rawhide, here's some links:
that's the output of 'fedfind images --compose 20150218' (it assumes
Rawhide if you don't specify).
