Yum problem in FC4

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Hi,
I am having a bit of problem with making yum work.
I am behind a proxy server which requires authentication. After reading some posts and man yum.conf, my yum.cnf looks like
(Note: password has been changed)
yum.conf
[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=0
# The proxy server - proxy server:port number
proxy=http://vsnlproxy.iitk.ac.in:3128/
# The account details for yum connections
proxy_username=spsingh
proxy_password=my_passwd

and
/etc/wgetrc
# You can set the default proxies for Wget to use for http and ftp.
# They will override the value in the environment.
http_proxy = http://vsnlproxy.iitk.ac.in:3128
#ftp_proxy = "http://vsnlproxy.iitk.ac.in:3128"
proxy-user=spsingh
proxy-passwd=my_passwd

# If you do not want to use proxy at all, set this to off.
use_proxy = on

now yum update gives
[[email protected] sumeet]# yum update

but wget http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.extras/repodata/repomd.xml gives

[[email protected] sumeet]# wget http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.extras/repodata/repomd.xml

11:27:19 (10.87 MB/s) - `repomd.xml.1' saved [1,140/1,140]

Now I tried to set http_proxy externally by doing
export http_proxy="http://spsingh:[email protected]:3128/"
but yum update does not change.
So, i mada a change in both yum.conf and wgetrc and removed the part described above
and wget gives the same  error 407

[[email protected] sumeet]# wget http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.extras/repodata/repomd.xml
--11:31:10--  http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.extras/repodata/repomd.xml

Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 407 Proxy Authentication Required
11:31:10 ERROR 407: Proxy Authentication Required.

whereas yum update remains unchanged.

Please help. I have been on this since last few days, I believe proxy handling by yum is pretty bad!!

Thanks
Sumeet
