and also post your main yum.conf file here.
<pre wrap="">OK ... I think that we have now confirmed that the default yum behavior
is not to enable the proxy information in it's config file until after
it has already obtained the mirror information.
This is a yum design issue and when it enables the proxy information.
We are going to look to see if it is possible to make the mirrorlist
selection happen through the proxy info provided by yum.conf ... in the
meantime, please leave the proxy information in your ENV ... or pass it
in when you issue the yum command.
Thanks for you feedback in helping to make CentOS better.
We have a new yum RPM that uses the proxy to select the mirrorlists if
one is defined in yum.conf or in a .repo file.
The new yum is available here for testing:
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/yum-2.4.2-2.centos4.noarch.rpm">http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/yum-2.4.2-2.centos4.noarch.rpm</a>
(yum is a noarch RPM and this version should work on all centos-4
This will be released after it is tested and we know it works, so please
reply to this posting if you have a proxy server and yum was not working
for you before.

The new version works ok for me with the proxy configuration in
