GUI start failed because of Proxy-Error

Postby michaelhecht » Tue Mar 16, 2010 18:25

Hello,

after loading the latest build (03-16-py2.5) I cannot start the GUI getting the following error:
Code: Select all
Warning: a problem occurred using server-side script on repository 'Default Orange Repository (www.ailab.si)': HTTP Error 407: Proxy Authentication Required.
All add-ons need to be downloaded for their metadata to be extracted!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "orngCanvas.pyw", line 7, in <module>

    loadRepositories()

    updateDefaultRepositories()

    drepo.refreshData(firstLoad=True)

    raise RepositoryException("Unable to load repository data: %s" % e)
orngAddOns.RepositoryException: Unable to load repository data: HTTP Error 407: Proxy Authentication Required


Since I'm behind a proxy I have now really a problem. What can I do?

I hope this will be fixed by tomorrow, but for now try setting the http_proxy enviroment variable with somethig like:
Code: Select all
set http_proxy=http://username:password@proxy.example.com:8080
on windows or

Code: Select all
export http_proxy="http://username:password@proxy.example.com:8080"
everywhere else
