3.0.STABLE2 is has broken authentication.
Please file a bug report with Fedora, asking for the Squid package to
get updated. They already have 3.0.STABLE6 integrated, but not pushed
down to Fedora 9...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Sure, no problem, I'm planning to update squid in F9 either way.
squid-3.0.STABLE6-1.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
squid-3.0.STABLE6-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update squid'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-4500
I can confirm that upgrading to 3.0.STABLE6-1.fc9 from the testing repository
fixes this problem for me.
Tom, in that case, please add karma to the update so we can push it.
Well if I knew how to do that then I'd be glad to... I can't see anything about
karma on the bug anywhere?
Tom, it's here: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-4500 add
a comment and check the "Works for me" option.
squid-3.0.STABLE6-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
