Description of problem:
If i configure up2date to use a proxy server, then i go to another place where
that proxy hostname is no longer valid, up2date does not run, it dies silently
without a warning or an error message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.configure up2date to use your proxy server
2.launch up2date from the RHN applet in the panel
3.it works fine
4.go to a different network where the hostname you configured for a proxy is not
5.launch up2date from the RHN applet in the panel
Actual Results: nothing happens. up2date dies silently, but the user does not
get any notification on that
Expected Results: up2date should prompt an error message saying "proxy not
available" or something like that
this bug is very bad for laptop users. when going to a different network,
up2date dies misteriously.
also, there are way too many places to configure a proxy server. all
applications, including the RHN applet and up2date should use the setting
configured in the Preferences / Network Proxy menu.
