yum needs trailing slash on proxy port number
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:57 EST
Description of problem:
To get yum to use a proxy you must add a trailing slash to the port
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set proxy=http://some.proxy:3128 in yum.conf
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error nonnumeric port: '3128?'>
it should work
to fix it add :3128/
It looks like there's a non-printable character that snuck in there. Can you
attach your entire yum.conf in its non-working state?

I used od -c on the file and \n is the only thing to follow :3128
0000260 m : 3 1 2 8 \n
I had the same issue, but I think the "non numeric port" might be a red herring.
For me if I use the documented:
Then it breaks...
However if I use:
Then it works!
Give that a try.
Ok, I see the problem ... fixed.
