- During installation, 'updated' shoud be translated to 'mis(es) jour'.

Howdy.
I have FC5 installed and behind a few proxy/firewalls. I have to use the ftp and http proxy env var.
My Yum works fine, but this morning I installed Yumex to take it for a spin and it is choking.

Screen shot one shows what it is doing.

Screen shot two is just a quick snip with yum showing yumex installed..

Do I need to adjust a config file for yumex as well.
Thanks!

You have to set the proxy server in the yumex preferences too, same format as the http_proxy=.
yumex is not run is a shell, so the http_proxy env. var is not set before yumex is running.

Thank you kindly. I missed that check box when I was looking for the whole proxy name and password fields..
I'm running now..
