I have a problem; my Fedora 8 machine is able to reach the Internet through Firefox, and also through apps like the package manager. We have a proxy server here...I have set up proxy settings in Firefox prefs and also in the System>Preferences>Internet and Network area.
However, whenever my terminal needs to download a package or touch a repo for something, the terminal cannot get out. I have tried 'export http_proxy="http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80"; (also https_proxy and ftp_proxy) in the .bashrc, does anyone have any other idea why my terminal is blocked?
I'll be on and actively checking this thread...been trying to solve this for quite some time.
