Error in the proxy configuration section of "Managing Software with Yum" document
Last modified: 2008-01-23 08:00:06 EST
Description of problem: In the latest version of "Managing Software With Yum"
(1.31), in Section 11.1, Example 4, there is an error in the format of the
In the document it is shown as: proxy=http://mycache.mydomain.com:3128
It should be: proxy=http://mycache.mydomain.com:3128/
ie, it should have a trailing '/'.
The proxy setting will not work is this slash is omitted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.31
Current yum-3.2.7-1.fc8 works without the trailing slash.
Please retry with the latest version.
Tony, are you still seeing the problem with the proxy= variable?
Eric, I accept that the problem has been fixed in later versions of yum, but if
you're using an earlier version then the problem persists.
For this reason, I think the documentation should either include the ending '/'
or a comment be added.
Tony, what version is this still a problem with?
The one that's with RHEL4.
(In reply to comment #6)
> The one that's with RHEL4.
So this isn't a problem in FC6, F7, or F8?
A note has been added to the existing documentation that this may be a problem.
Will confirm with yum developers.
