The bugzilla entry says it is fixed in rawhide.

A DNS issue. Be sure you have set a proper hostname and that the
/etc/hosts file reflects that one. Too it is important that the
/etc/hosts file has the localhost line.

If you are unexperienced it might be best to check your configuration
using system-config-network.
