This is a virtual machine, rng-tools-5-4.fc22.x86_64 is installed ... I did just try to create a gpg key and it seemed to have entropy issues... I did however run the command
$ rngd -W 4096
$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
to fill the entropy up again (previously reporting around 3081), now it is at 4094. gpg works now with no issues, redid the install but still failed at the same step.

Hi all,
I'm a fairly advanced user, however, having issues with setting up
freeIPA.  I've started with Fedora 22 server (both with minimal install
and basic install), modified the hosts and hostname file respectively to
xx.xx.xx.xx ipa
and began the install options selected were:
Directory Manager Password:     set
IPA admin password:             set

But I always get this error:
CA did not start in 300.0s

I've modified the
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipaplatform/redhat/  to
increase the timeout value, but no luck.

Is this a VM? Do you have a driver for random number generator added to it? 
like virtio-rng for libvirtd/kvm.
It might well be that the VM struggles to get enough entropy to generate
