Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201795
Documentation of yum should not unnecessarily use root privileges
Last modified: 2008-01-16 11:07:53 EST
Description of problem:
In chapter 5 of "Managing Software with yum", for searching several times root
privileges are used. This is unnecessary and should be avoided, I think.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
For example: su -c 'yum list tsclient'
yum list tsclient
umm. Why did I get added to this bug?
Not sure how you were added. I added myself... Removing you.

suggested fixes make sense, represent 'best practices', thanks for the suggestion
The older "Docs" file has been superseded by the Wiki Draft version. I have
verified that the Wiki version does contain best practices for using yum.
