YUM: Set No Proxy Only for Specific (Local) Site

June 28th, 2009

Fedora 11 is released, and it’s time for me to re install and re enrich my notebook with packages which enabling me to play and use proprietary software/content. However, I experience problems when I need to add or remove programs through YUM. I figured out that the problem because of wrong proxy management. So, I will share how I’ve get through this problems. Here we go: 1. Open /etc/yum.conf. As usual, set the proxy that you will use to surf outside the local area network. Just like this one: proxy=http://152.118.24.10:8080 2. Open the repository document that use your local area network For example, my university already mirror Fedora 11 Repository, so I can use the local connection in high speed connection. I set the /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo to http://kambing.ui.ac.id/fedora. Finally, at the end of each repository declaration, add “proxy=none” This is the sample of my /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo name=Fedora $releasever – $basearch failovermethod=priority

baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/$releasever/Everything/$basearch/os/

baseurl=http://kambing.ui.ac.id/fedora/releases/11/Everything/i386/os/

mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch

enabled=1 metadata_expire=7d gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

proxy=none

And now you can surf the packages from inside or outside you local area network.
