Description evan.langlois 2000-07-11 16:10:06 UTC
I have the proxy servers set for both http and ftp, and I get absolutely no
error messages when using gnorpm from the menu, however, when I use it from
the command line, I at least get some messages, however, it doesn't ask me
for the root password which is an odd inconsistency that isn't exactly a
bug, but should probably be changed - gnorpm itself should query for the
root password and not use a wrapper script, which would also allow users to
install an rpm by right clicking it from gmc - instead of logging out and
logging back in as root, launching gnorpm manually, or opening a terminal
window.  Wish I could turn on more debug than this, but the docs aren't the
greatest :
