Do you have a proxy set?
Comment 3 Benny Amorsen 2004-10-25 15:08:28 EDT
No proxy.
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2004-10-26 01:00:09 EDT
That's very odd. The traceback implies one.

Comment 5 Benny Amorsen 2004-10-26 13:31:25 EDT
Sorry for giving you wrong information. Obviously my memory must be
going. I was a bit preoccupied with trying to find a way to get things
working on a system affected by
http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3352 at the time.

Unfortunately the only .bash_history I have from the event shows the
things I did on console 2, and there's nothing about proxy or yum
there, so the yum stuff was done on console 1.

Anyway, the proxy in use would be set by: export
http_proxy= I am not sure whether it was actually set
like that at the time. Feel free to close the bug if this report is
just too vague.

Closing this as worksforme, refile if you can recreate it.
