Description ekkolord 2015-08-25 04:37:23 UTC
Description of problem:
The proxy option in dnf.conf doesn't support socks5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-1.1.0-2.fc22.noarch

How reproducible:
Add a socks5 proxy in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf then run dnf update

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf
2. Add proxy=socks5://127.0.0.1:44
3. dnf update

Actual results:
Config error: Error parsing "proxy = u'socks5://127.0.0.1:44'": URL must be http, ftp or https not "socks5"

Expected results:
dnf use my socks5 proxy to do update

Additional info:
I know this method will work:
http_proxy=socks5://127.0.0.1:44 dnf update

I am sure dnf is using my socks5 proxy
So dnf actually support socks5 proxy, but dnf.conf doesn't support it

But this is a strange workaround
yum in CentOS 7.1.1503 support socks5 proxy in yum.conf
if dnf is meant to be better than yum, this should be fixed
