Description of problem:
After upgrading from seawolf to roswell, I attempted to use up2date to
upgrade through the beta rhn server. I used up2date-config to enable proxy
settings, and entered the ip address and port of the proxy server, I then
verified that the proxy settings were in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date and ran
up2date, it hangs attempting to download package list, and running strace
on the process shows it is attempting to connect to port 80 on
beta.rhns.redhat.com, rather than to port 3128 on the proxy server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade to roswell
2.Configure up2date to use a proxy
Grab the latest up2date packages (as well as python-xmlrpc if you don't have it)
and install those and see what happens.
These are the versions I have installed now:
I haven't been able to find anything newer than these, if there are newer
versions, please let me know where to find them...
Oops . . . meant to include a link to the latest stuff. Head to
This bug appears to be fixed prior to release, I cannot reproduce it in Enigma,
so go ahead and close it...
