http://forums.fedoraforum.org – In a previous post I described that with the latest version of yumex, you can no longer run the program as a mere sudo user - you have to know the root password now (see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=233869). This makes it complicated for admins who want to grant their users certain rights without giving away the root PW. Here's a simple solution how you can enable yumex for trusted users: Sytem - Administration - Users and Groups: add the trusted user to the "wheel" group add the following line to /etc/security/console.apps/yumex-yum-backend: UGROUPS=wheel Now your user can start yumex using his/her PW for authentication. :D (HowTos)
