Setting up proxy for YUM for Fedora 15, 14, 13, 12

If your current network is using proxy, than to enable yum through proxy, you must setup the yum.conf file. The proxy setting from the network proxy is not enough to use yum with proxy. This problem i had face since F12(my first fedora, haha).

  1. Open terminal
  2. Type su
  3. Enter your root password
  4. Type nautilus or sudo nautilus
  5. Open File System folder
  6. Open etc folder
  7. search for yum.conf
  8. open in text editor
  9. add you proxy url and port number (eg. http://myproxy:8080)
 there is another simple way that is type
sudo gedit '/etc/yum.conf'
and enter your proxy url.
