That is not host : port format either. You cannot enter a proxy-autoconfigure file here. Enter either

httpProxy=128.240.229.7:8080

or

httpProxy=128.240.229.65:8080

if you really need that proxy.

Thanks again for your help Misc.

How do I change the httpProxy? Is that in the network setting on the programs menu?

I have now gone into 'preferences' then 'networking settings' and changed the proxy to manual and 128.240.229.7:8080 and the problem remains the same.

I am having the same problem.
I updated the ssl like it said on the website, and if I try to again it says that it is already installed.
SO, why do I always get the "Problem Registering User" error?
When I click on the Register RHN to begin with, I get a blank screen (where some type of license agreement should be), then I say.. use existing account.. put in my user name and pass (from registering REDHAT 9 Prof on the website) then click finish.. but then the error.
Any Ideas why?
I have contacted red hat, but no answers yet.

I am able to register 2 computers with RedHat 9 Prof, but I have none registered as of yet.

Any help is appreciated.

D.

The error description is rather vague.

A common mistake is that you don't have any free entitlements left in your account at RHN. Only one demo entitlement is free per person. Log in at https://rhn.redhat.com and free up an entitlement, that means disable or delete the profile of previously registered machines.

I do not have any computers registered yet (already checked to make sure) and since I have purchased the Prof Ed. of RH9, I am entitled to 2 computers.
Since I dont have any registered yet, I am still able to register 2.
(One for work... which I am trying now.. then the other for home.. once I get the one at work going).

I have contacted redhat and all they have said is do
" up2date --register " which I have already tried with the same result.

Any other Ideas?

Ok, this is exactly what happens.
I click on the RHN icon or type the " up2date --register "
It brings up the box.. but under the Step1: Review the Red Hat Privacy Statement, there is nothing. Just a blank box.
So I click forward....and go to Step2: Login
I click use existing Account, put in my username and password.
(even if I do create an account and put in the info, same problem)
Click Forward to Step3: System Profile--Hardware
Click Forward, it reads the installed packages etc...
Click Forward, now I am at the Send Profile Info to RHN.
Click Forward and I get the " Problem Registering Username " Error Message.
I click the "OK", , try Forward again, but keep getting the same " Prob Reg. Username " error
That is all, no script or anything.
I am updated to the latest SSL that they have posted, I verified that they are updated (by trying to update again, then told already installed)....

And that is it.

Hopefully this helps you
Thanks in advance.

D.

The missing detail here is, what does the "Error Message" say exactly? There can be several reasons for that error. RHN provides the details and displays them. If it didn't, you didn't receive the error message text from RHN either.

It sounds as if you experience communication errors and don't receive any data from RHN. Maybe something is blocking traffic to your host?

The "Problem Registering Username" is the error message.
That is all it says.
So... I decided to reinstall Linux (since it was originally installed yesterday)....... followed the instructions on the RedHat site (again) and this time it works.
Now.. I am having trouble installing the NVidia Drivers since it says it cannot find the kernel, and cant recompile a new one....
So.. Thanks for the help... now I have to find out how to fix the driver issue.

My RH9 install does what i primarily wanted it to do (samba server), but i've gotten it all sorts of ****ed up on everything else.

Anybody clue me on what happened here?

Ok.. another up2date problem (I Think).
up2date working (downloads, installs etc..) but when I choose to update the kernel from 2.4.20-8smp to 2.4.20-20.9smp it says that it is installed, but there is no mention of it at boot (only 2.4.20-8 and 2.4.20-8smp are mentioned).
I looked in the boot directory and there are .img files of the 20-8 but none for the 20-20.9.
And when I look at the grub file, it has no listing for the 20-20.9, so I was going to update it manually.... but since there is no 20-20.9 image..... how do I configure it??

Sorry if this is the wrong area.. just that the up2date updated the kernel fine in my other system.. but not for this one so I figure it is an up2date prob.
