Hi all :)
Few days ago i post a bug about my problem ([Bug 183685] ), but im not 
sure it is really a bug :-/

When i try to run both graphical update software (=application/add 
remove software & software updater) , it returns an error message : 
/unable to retrieve software information/

If i run the both softs from a shell, i get something else : 
/Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: development
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: development/

But if i use yum, it works.
NEVERTHELESS, i must precise that i have to use a proxy. Configuring the proxy _directly_ in yum.conf, doesn't work at all. I have to edit my .bashrc and add those two lines :
export http_proxy/

Would it be a way to add proxy information to the both graphical tools, or is there any other way to update my fc5 using graphical mode ?

thx !
