No, it is not. But you need the package "python-curl" for smart to
support proxies. Verify that you have this installed. It's not in the
10.1 installation repository, 10.2 will have it. For 10.1, you can find
unofficial packages here:

You can reach YaST and smart repos via FTP as well. Just look at the
mirror lists in the wiki, there are many FTP mirrors
available and you can also try just replacing http:// with ftp:// for
your favourite mirror.
