Description Bastien Nocera 2006-10-24 15:20:57 UTC
system-config-kickstart doesn't need root to work properly, as yum can use a
user-wide package cache instead.

Patch from Panu Matilainen <Panu.Matilainen@nokia.com>, adapted from yum-utils.

Built system-config-kickstart-2.6.15-1.el5 into the RHEL5 tree.  This should get
moved over post-beta 2.  If you need this in the beta 2 tree, we'll have to make
sure the appropriate flags are set on this bug.
