RE: RHEL5 yum problem



Marshall

You can check to see if your proxy is set by looking at the file
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date on a RHEL5 system.

Be sure to set the enableProxy parameter as well as httpProxy.

Subject: RHEL5 yum problem

This is my first foray into RHEL5 and so far change is not so good.  I
was quite comfortable with up2date, but alas it is not part of 5.
Locate doesn't seem to work very well either, but that is another story.


I am having some problems getting yum to run at all and I am not quite
sure if it's yum or python, as I am familiar with neither one.  This is
compounded by the fact that I am behind a proxy and I am not completely
sure that I am getting through it with what ever yum is using to get
there.  Currently, when I run yum I get the following:

[root fsh1166db07x Server]# yum update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Setting up Update Process

As I said before, I am not familiar with either yum or python.  I have
read the faqs and docs and wiki at DUKE and been through RH KB and am no
further ahead.  I really don't want to open a ticket with RH until I
have to because that in itself is kinda painful.  If anyone can point me
in a proper direction I would appreciate.  Thanks.
