Proxy + Yum


Hi guys!

I need to run yum using a proxy, read the manual and searched the internet. and got this instruction.

"If you would like to use a proxy with yum you can simply set a
shell environment variable of http_proxy. Set it to the url for
your proxy. Ex: http://your_proxyort/"

the problem is, where should i put the proxy setting or how do a set a shell environment variable?

Any help will be appreciated..THANK YOU!

You have to set it before you export it...

From yum' man page:

Proxy configuration
If you would like to use a proxy with yum you can simply set a
shell environment variable of http_proxy. Set it to the url for
your proxy. Ex: "http://your_proxyort/"

easy, you want to make it permanent for one user or for all users?

for all? Add your set and export to /etc/profile

for a user only?

same thing to ~/.bash_profile

don't reinstall, just boot in rescue mode, using the cd, or boot from the floppy you've created at install. You did that right?

Then you edit your grub.conf, reboot.
