comment Non-Root Package Managers
I don't really see how this is a convincing argument. Just because a package doesn't work since it's not invoked as root doesn't mean that the idea is not feasible. It's expected that PolicyKit wouldn't work for this type of situation. There are plenty of other packages that can be installed without root privileges. I am aware of software package managers (Python's is EasyInstall), but those aren't globally applicable as yum or apt-get are. Does anyone know the name of the program that Maciej is referring to?
