Description Hugo Cisneiros 2006-01-24 10:18:10 EST
Description of problem:

- When separating local and external repositories, the manpage says that you
should put an 'proxy' option with the value '_none_' to *not* use a proxy for a
specific repository (or skip global configuration proxy option). But even
specifying the option, yum tries to use the proxy (with environment variables
http_proxy and ftp_proxy configured). This way one cannot separate specific
local repositories (intranet) and external repositories (external throught a proxy).

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

- yum-2.4.1-1.fc4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure yum to use a proxy to get files.
2. Set an 'proxy=none' (or _none_? see manpage) in a repo file (.repo)
3. Try to 'yum update' and see if it's coming throught proxy or not (strace is
your friend too)
Actual results:

yum gets the files of that specific repo throught proxy. If the proxy is
unavailable for a local repo, it fails to downloads the files.

Expected results:

yum ignores the proxy and tries to get the files directly.

I found another entry in Bugzilla with this problem:

But in this case, it is specific to the 'none' proxy option. Don't know it's a
duplicate entry. I think it is some kind of duplicate, but with more information
to add about the problem. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'll try to Mark as
duplicate ;) Sorry.
