This was already a problem on 12.1 installation (but not on <=11.4!)
I do the net install.
I give in the network coordinates including the proxy when in starts.
When it starts yast2 i have to go to alt-cntrl-F2 to edit the proxy into /etc/sysconfig/proxy
When the installation is ready and it starts the Autoconfiguration al have to edit again in alt-ctrl-F" the /etc/sysconfig/proxy to activate the proxy. Additionally i have to edit /etc/resolv.conf to make the nameserver known again.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install with the netinstall behind a proxy
Thanks for the keyboard shortcuts, I didn't manage to find them myself!
I can confirm that the net installer forgets the proxy settings before it starts installing packages.
I use a proxy at home to cache packages, but I notice that the installer fails to download packages from my proxy. I know I provided the correct settings, because the initial 6 downloads totalling about 85Mb _are_ fetched through the proxy. (It also works correctly for the yast translations RPM which is downloaded after telling YaST I want en_UK, and the 'cracklib-dict-full.rpm' which yast uses to test the password).
openSUSE 12.2 is out of maintenance, so I'm moving this to Tumbleweed. I don't know if it's still reproducible there, though - setting needinfo on the assignee. Michal could you please update the bug?
