Description of problem:
up2date tries to do a DNS lookup of ftp.redhat.com by quering the internal DNS
instead of using the http proxy. And since the internal DNS knows very little
of ftp.redhat.com, up2date spews out a traceback ending with
urllib2.URLError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution')>
and then just hangs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make up2date use a HTTP proxy
3.watch it query the internal DBS
It doesnt use the proxy at all. I can resolve ftp.redhat.com ok but when i
attach to the process its trying to go direct.
This is related to bug 102272 , which is the problem you would still have if
A workaound that has been pointed out by several persons on the
fedora-test-list, is to (as root) run
env http_proxy=http://my_proxy.my_domain:my_proxyport /usr/sbin/up2date
Beat me if I'm wrong, but this _is_ a dupe of 102272 (same bug, only
part of the symptom).
