Sure. I didn't want to be too confusing to Mr "n.v.t n.v.t." and as
(s)he didn't mention (s)he had to enter a proxy user information I
guessed that none was needed.
For proxies which require authentication, the correct syntax is:
Again, don't forget the trailing slash. This is a known bug in
base-config in sarge/testing : apt-setup fails if no trailing slash is
mentioned. Moreover, if you had to specify a proxy in FIRST stage
(because you use a businesscard installer image), the proxy
information *without* trailing slash will have worked there...will be
re-used in 2nd stage....and will fail here.
A fix has been attempted in base-config for that but is only present
in the unstable version of it.
Joey, any chance to bring this fix into sarge's base-config?
