Description Enrico Scholz 2005-02-21 16:22:08 EST
Description of problem:

| # set
| http_proxy=http://www-cache:3128/
| no_proxy=ultra.csn.tu-chemnitz.de
| # strace rpm --import 0x53ACA43A
| ...
| connect(3, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(11371), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16) = 0
|                                               ~~~~~                      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When the $*_proxy variables are set, 'rpm' (like any other http aware
application) should honor it.

Yep, the proxy support in rpm ain't been looked at seriously
since 1999. There is much that needs doing to make rpm
more network useful.

Confirming this bug in FC4

Reassigning to owner after bugzilla made a mess, sorry about the noise...
Comment 5 Panu Matilainen 2007-09-12 07:29:37 EDT
rpm.org upstream uses a helper (curl or similar) to operate on url's, so
http_proxy etc get honored if the helper does.
