Initially (about a year and half ago) i did have the problem of zypper not
updating behind the proxy. THen I searched the web and it told that adding
"ZYPP_ARIA2C=0" will solve the issue. I did that. I was atleast able to
download the updates and install them.
there were too many errors and subsequent retries to download the updates
(especially there is severe problem to refresh the repositories).
If the repositories do refresh (afer lots of pain) then individual updates
present a challenge...too many checksum errors and repeated retries to get even
few MBs of updates to install.
I have 10 systems. 7 run with RHEL and 3 with open SuSE. (I love OpenSuSE by
All of them are in EXACTLY same network environment (behind proxy).
I have ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFICULTY in updating the RHELs (using yum -y update). I
download tons of updates and install them.
However I its a pain to update the OpenSuSE (ver 11.3 that I have on these
machines). The problem is more severe after 11.xx versions of OpenSuSE.
There is a big problem in entire download and install program behind a factory
firewall. Somebody in Novell has to do a extensive testing on this front. (It
was one of the reasons we abandoned SLES 11 for our production servers).
Its far too long that "ZYPP_ARIA2C=0" has not been automatically set if the
proxy is also set.
I have OpenSuSE11.3 at home, its more easy to update on this machine (its not
behind the firewall). However occasionally i do get check sum errors (they go
away on retries). But in Office (behind firewall) the problem is severe.
The problem is more acute in OpenSuSE 11.3 (it almost nearly impossible to
update behind firewall).
Kindly pay a major attention to this area...its long overdue.
