Description of problem:

problem with http proxy in pup and pirut - works fine with yum and yumex

tried export http_proxy http://<server>:<port>
tried adding to /etc/yum.conf as directed in 


using proxy=http://<server>:<port>

and even tried setting the system->preferences-network proxy 

nothing helps pup/pirut

How reproducible:

  always fails - acts like there is no network connection.

Can you install http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/yum-2.6.0-2.noarch.rpm and see
if it helps?

Comment 2 das_deniz 2006-04-12 20:25:12 UTC
not a fix, sorry jeremy. 

i did a fresh fc5 install (lost the old machine)
export http_proxy=
yum -y update
rpm -Uvh yum-2.6.0-2.noarch.rpm
and tried pup - same trouble.

so then i added proxy= to the /etc/yum.conf file
tried again... no go
rebooted tried again... still timing out with
"Unable to retrieve software information"

Comment 3 das_deniz 2006-04-13 13:39:57 UTC
oops. i should add that it *absolutely* fixes *yum* for using /etc/yum.conf
proxy= __alone__ (w/o the ENV http_proxy=)

so this *is* a fix for yum proxy handling - 
but fails to resolve the problem for pirut.

Aha, I see what's going on.  Marking a dupe of the main bug I'm going to use for
tracking this so that I don't have to juggle a few of these

Moving component to pirut. Sorry for the spam.
