View Full Version : pirut and pup

28th April 2006, 09:29 AM
i am in an institute with proxy firewall.... i realise, pirut and pup fail and exit without any instructions if connection to internet fails. i tried giving proxy using http_proxy and ftp_proxy through command line being root user, and the problem persists.. can somebody help me with this. can i somehow configure the pirut and pup to my local proxy settings??
what r the other options? i have installed yum. but can i remove softwares using this? my system has become considerably slow with FC 5. firefox, kopete take a lot of time to show up.

thanks in advance,

Yes you certainly can and should remove, install and update software with Yum. Just type 'man yum' for all the options that you have, but basically to remove a package you'd type: 'yum remove packagename' and it will resolve dependencies.
