Description Mario 2003-10-16 15:34:53 EDT
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora Beta 3

How reproducible:

Always when you need to use a Proxy server.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set parameter http_proxy="server_name:port" and export the variable
    In my case  I don't need a username/passwd

2. Run up2date -u 

Actual results:

Fetching package list for channel: rawhide...
Fetching http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide//headers/header.info...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1183, in ?
    sys.exit(main() or 0)
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 761, in main
    fullUpdate, dryRun=options.dry_run))
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1046, in batchRun

  File "repoDirector.py", line 20, in listPackages

  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/repoBackends/yumRepo.py", line 223, in
    (envra, rpmPath) = string.split(line, '=')
ValueError: unpack list of wrong size

Expected results:

To update my system

Additional info:

This works  fine if I run up2date in a machine connected directly to internet
Comment 1 Mario 2003-10-16 15:53:49 EDT
Oops, I forgot to say that up2date fails when the machine is inside a network
and you use a proxy for up2date
Comment 2 Mario 2003-10-16 15:58:28 EDT
I also tried to define the proxy server in /etc/wgetrc to see if there was any
difference but nothing changed

Comment 3 Mario 2003-10-16 16:02:59 EDT
As additional information. This functionality worked fine in Beta 2
Comment 4 Mario 2003-10-20 10:21:13 EDT
I installed:


And I get: 

# up2date -u
Fetching package list for channel: rawhide...
Fetching http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide//headers/header.info...
There was some sort of I/O error: <urlopen error (110, 'Connection timed out')>
