Re: [yast-devel] leap installer cannot find server from which HTTP installation was initiated
Felix Miata composed on 2015-10-06 19:51 (UTC-0400):

I spent half an hour configuring partitioning and custom package selection
and tabooing after a perfectly normal HTTP startup from Grub with source
http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/leap/42.1-Current/repo/oss/
on
kernel cmdline. Then when clicking to proceed after finishing selection,
"Cannot access installation media". Retries for 20+ minutes are changing
nothing, while this PC has no problem accessing the very same URL. This can't
be right. Can the installer be kicked somehow to reprobe DNS or something to
make it access what clearly *is* accessible, or does Yesterday's upload to
the mirrors have a broken installer WRT network installation?

So it's not an inaccessible server. It's looking for
branding-openSUSE-42.1-4.1.noarch.rpm when what the mirror has is 42.1-4.2.
Can this be worked around without restarting and losing the time already
invested? I yes, how?
