Description Pete Travis 2013-06-22 23:05:37 UTC
Using yum behind a proxy requires special configuration, and the guide does not document this relatively common support question. I think some instructions should be added for this, either as a term in the yum [main] section or an independent section.

This should be included in the DNF section now, but most things use the system proxy config or $http_proxy and $https_proxy env vars so it may not be as necessary as it was back in Fedora 2x days...still, adding proxy=http://proxy:8080 to your dnf.conf file is still a possible solution
