Description Marius Andreiana 2005-07-01 12:43:18 UTC
rpm --httpproxy $http_proxy --import
import read failed(-1).
rpmk: url.c:103: XurlFree: Assertion `u && u->magic == 0xd00b1ed0' failed.

Reproducibility: 100%

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2005-07-13 10:18:18 UTC
The option --httpproxy is almost certainly not what you want, what's implemented is
a TIS proxy from ~1998.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2006-08-05 11:32:31 UTC
Since the issue of rpm being network aware is controversial and unlikely to change even gradually
this decade, I suggest that you use alternative means of transport that handle modern proxies,
and then import as a secondary step.

DEFERRED until the rpm development/upgrade glaciers melt in the year 2020 ...
