Description of Problem:
When http-access is available only through a proxy, firstboot hangs at the
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the freshly installed machine behind a firewall which drops away
HTTP-packages from "normal" hosts
2. try to register at RHN
proxy can be configured before rhn-register or at least a warning that it will
not work behind firewalls
I thought that up2date had a way of working from behind a proxy. I think that
up2date should handle this...not firstboot.
it should be prompting for proxy configuration
on first running of up2date.
I'll check and see why this might not be happening.
fixed in up2date-2.9.51
Happens again in phoebe...
Should be fixed in 3.1.6. No network query is done
until the dialog is up, and only at users demand.
So proxies can be configure first.
proxy config does indeed pop up first.
