http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello, I am using a using the internet through a goverment proxy. I am trying to update using "yum". This does not seem to work. I do not have yumex installed, and since I can't use yum, I can't install yumex. Is there a way to get yum (and Klamav) through an automaticly updating proxy configuration url? I am using fedora 16. My version of yum is yum-3.4.3-7.fc16.noarch. This url, directly below, from 2010 states that yum is not able to do this. Is this still true? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...th-yum-922372/ I have tried various protocals from the following urls. (HowTos)
