problem using apt-get
 
hi,
i use redhat 9. i recently installed apt-get. but was not able to install any of the softwares using it. so i edited the apt.conf file and made changes in the following function in the file.
i changed the "Proxy "http://proxy.somewhere.com:3128/"; and from then it is not even connecting. so pls help.

Acquire {
Retries "0";
HTTP {
Proxy "http://proxy.somewhere.com:3128/";
};
};

thanx in advance.
tuxtamer.

You did try "apt-get update" first before you did an "apt-get install rpmpackage" right?
