Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200854
Yum proxy documentation is not correct
Last modified: 2008-01-29 13:37:16 EST
Description of problem:
The following webpage
has 2 issues.
1. It says "Refer to the man page for yum.conf for information on HTTP
settings that may be modified for compatibility with nonstandard web proxy
servers". There are no such information on man yum.conf.
2. I don't know if this is issue with uym or the documentation, but with our
proxy I had to enter the proxy as
(notice the slash at the end). Without it yum didn't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora core 5
Always following the instructions on the above page
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup URL as described
2. Yum update fails
3. Add the / at the end. Yum update passes.
I believe this has been resolved in the Wiki.
