I have a system with Fedora 36 server installed, and wanted to get a desktop environment going. It seemed straight forward enough, but so far I’ve not had much luck getting the package to install.
I tried a repo install, “sudo dnf install '@'kde-desktop-environment” (and "dnf group install “KDE Plasma Workspaces”)
It progresses as expected, but then stalls on openh264

I tried direct wget of the .rpm file, but that times out

I also tried installing gstreamer, but the same stall happens (operation too slow).
dnf install gstreamer1-plugin-openh264 mozilla-openh264
Any pointers on where the issue is, and how I can potentially get around it?
