  2. Proceed through the installer until the Software Selection step
  3. At the software selection step, click Add additional software repositories and provide the information listed. If more than one package repository is listed, you may also click Modify repository for an existing unselected entry. Enter the following information, then select OK
    • Repository type - HTTP/FTP
    • Repository URL -
      If the ftp is non-anonymous, add a URL like this:
    • Uncheck URL is a mirror list
    • If you have a proxy, configure a proxy as needed
  4. Select Customize now, then click next
  5. Check several packages or package groups provided by the additional repository on the screen

Expected Results

  1. The package metadata from additional repository is read correctly

  3. Anaconda completes and system reboots successfully
  4. The checked packages provided by additional repository are installed in the system
