Zypp backend can't work well with libproxy.


Sorry, I don't understand what you just said.

- libzypp does work as root (actually only as root unless you use the ReadOnlyHack)
- If by ZYpp backend you mean the PackageKit zypp backend, AFAIK it also runs at root
- The only thing you have to take care is that if you are using SUSE's libproxy, libzypp will use the sysconfig value when running as root. If you have your custom backends for libproxy then it will work as the backends says. Unless packagekit has its own proxy settings or something we are missing in the picture.
