Description Chris Ricker 2001-09-08 09:50:59 EDT
When running rhn_register as a non-root user, it pops up a GTK(I think) X
applet asking for the root password.

Unfortunately, it does this regardless of the --nox command line option,
making it unusable for non-root users on low-bandwidth connections.
