Problem
The yum installer on Fedora 16 gives error messages when trying to install or update packages.

Solution
Open the File Manager and navigate to the following directory:

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/urlgrabber/

Edit the grabber.py file and change the following ssl option:

from
self.curl_obj.setopt(pycurl.SSL_VERIFYHOST, opts.ssl_verify_host)
to
self.curl_obj.setopt(pycurl.SSL_VERIFYHOST, 2)

Save and close the file and the yum installer will now work.
