I have been testing openSUSE on a work computer. We use bluecoat for a proxy. I can configure the proxy and open a web browser, and that works. Or I can set the web browser to auto-detect the proxy, and that works as well. However, I can’t use YaST to install software. If I put the proxy information in YaST, it prompts for user/password, which I provide, but I can’t get it to work. I am using the same user/password for the proxy in the web browser, and on another box at the same time.
I’ve got YaST configured to use the same proxy information for all protocals, yet isn’t the package manager just using http for http repositories?
I’ve tried this, and it’s still not working for me. I’ve even tried setting the proxy to “no” in the file and going out directly after opening up ports, and openSuSE 10.3 still insists on trying to use the proxy and nagging me that I need authentication. I have the number “1” in my password, but that shouldn’t be an issue
Do you have to do anything after you edit the proxy file? I tried SuSEconfig, rcnetwork restart, etc. nothing seems to help.
I ended up rebooting the PC and things started working with the new settings, but I still couldn’t get an nvidia driver to intall without a slew of dependency problems, so I’m going to move this to 10.2 for now. My ultimate goal is to put 11 on it, but it’s taking awhile to download. I’m not the most patient person in the world
