Description of problem:

Pirut simply doesn't work behind a proxy

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run pirut
Actual results:
"Retrieving Software information window appears" but freezes untill I kill it.

Expected results:
I don't know : I never saw the next point :-)

Additional info:
Setting  the http_proxy variable makes yum work very well.
I also set gnome proxy preferences.

I think it's a proxy problem since strace gives me :
connect(.....sin addr=inet addr(""}} and direct connection are
indeed firewalled

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

Thank you very much : this is indeed now fixed.
But I have exactly the same problem with system-config-kickstart ?
Will it be also solved soon or should I open a bug ?
