use zypper with proxychains get segmentation fault

Hi guys,

I am trying to use zypper through a local socks5 proxy. Since zypper does not come with any proxy support (best I know), I am using proxychains.

Tested my proxychains setup and it works well with telnet, but reports segmentation fault(error msg below) when used for zypper.

proxychains4 zypper ref
[proxychains] config file found: /etc/proxychains.conf
[proxychains] preloading /usr/lib64/
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I’m on tumbleweed, and have proxychains-ng 4.11-1.9.x86_64.

Any ideas what’s the problem? or any suggestions about using zypper with socks5, thanks.

I know this thread is over a year old, but were you able to get zypper to work with proxychains?
