Description Nigel Dallard 2000-10-13 16:03:49 UTC
I've just downloaded and installed gnorpm-0.95.1-3.i386.rpm on to a RedHat
7.0 system. This machine is sitting behind a firewall, so I went to
Operations, Preferences to tell Gnome-RPM about said firewall, but it
insists on trying to download some rdf file from www.redhat.com  before
giving me any option to configure a firewall, so it just sits there until I
kill it.

This was supposed to have been fixed in this release (bugzilla #9254).

Gnorpm works behind firewalls if they correctly reject the connection, if the
connection is simply blocked then it will wait until it times out. Thats rather
a long timeout.

I'll take a look at the preferences issues before gnorpm 1.0 but they are
horribly hard to fix.

Gnorpm has been deprecated for the next version of RedHat. It will be replaced
with a package called redhat-config-packages.

Comment 7 Mark Warren 2003-05-25 05:16:59 UTC
Another way I found to workaround this problem is to add these lines to the
[rpmfind] section of the file $HOME/.gnome/gnorpm :


Comment 8 Mark Warren 2003-05-25 05:45:39 UTC
Upon further testing, the enableProxy=1 line isn't necessary.  I just used vi to
manually add the line.
