Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 197023
yum manpage claim to support URLs with -c does not seem to be valid
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:54:26 EST
Description of problem:
'man yum' says among other things:
-c [config file]
Specifies the config file location - can take http, ftp urls and
local file paths.
This indeed _was_ the case with yum in FC3 and FC4; at least for http.
Today I had an opportunity to look at that in a situation when I controlled
both communication ends and yum refused to recognize anything but
local files. With every URL in a form http://.... or ftp://....
it was always "No such file or directory" even if they were there.
