Ok, I was able to reporoduce the problem you're having. This is defintely a
Yumex bug and I'll try to patch it today. For now, you can workaround this
problem by specifying the protocol in your proxy setting:
Assuming that the proxy server address you entered was, make sure
that you specify the protocol by adding "http://" before it: You can change this in /etc/yumex.conf file.

Comment 3 Dawid Zamirski 2007-04-24 16:52:44 UTC
I have just committed the fix to SVN repo so it should be fixed in the next
release of yumex-1.2.x

Comment 4 Tim Lauridsen 2007-05-01 09:00:45 UTC
Thanks Dawid, for fixing the issue for yumex 1.2.x, can you added the changes to
yumex-1.9.x too

Comment 5 Tim Lauridsen 2007-05-01 09:04:34 UTC
*** Bug 237785 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 6 Dawid Zamirski 2007-05-01 13:47:48 UTC
Tim, this issue doesn't seem to apply to 1.9.X branch - at least I couldn't
reproduce because it doesn't crash no matter what the proxy addreess in
yumex.conf is.
