I wanted to add it as a bug in the bugtracker and found bug #414:


" Since Basic authentication needs a base64 string and this egg is
not in use in chicken-install, the user needs to configure the
proxy_auth environment variable with such encoded string.

As an example of usage, try

# proxy_auth=$(echo -n user:pass | base64) chicken-install egg"

Did you try this?

Kind regards,

movement go on, and the condition of rest will gradually arise.
