yields errors and you are not able to enter any information about your proxy as
the GUI is never fully displayed and crashes out. Although it does create the
necessary config files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date-config

Actual Results:
Can't enter any configuration through the GUI

Expected Results:
Should be able to enter configuration through the GUI

Additional Information:

using 'up2date-config --nox' seems to work correctly.

Even after using the above command to set the proxy, running 'up2date-config'
still gives the same error messages.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-07-27 03:42:40 EDT
Ah! I'd forgot to set the "use proxy" flag. Once that's done you can use the gui
up2date-config once again...

This is bad for a new user on a new box though.
Comment 3 Forrest 2002-07-30 13:05:58 EDT
I noticed the same thing.  up2date should not try to connect to the internet
before you have a chance to enter a proxy.
Comment 4 Adrian Likins 2002-07-30 14:15:26 EDT
Hmm, indeed. 

Passable work around in cvs (catch the communications error). Probabaly
need to add a "refresh server list" button to refetch the list once
the proxy info is know. Not great ui, but alas... Bit of a catch-22
of course, need to setup up networking before I can ask a server
what other servers you might want to use for your networking.

I love http proxies ;->

first pass fix in cvs, should show up in 2.9.31
Comment 5 Jay Turner 2002-08-19 15:42:58 EDT
Fix confirmed with up2date-2.9.46-1.
