Re: [opensuse-factory] Running YaST-Control-Center without root

I made a patch for YaST CC which enables it to run without root
permissions, and starts separate modules as root instead (when it
needs them with root permissions) [1], however I'm not sure how
you might feel about this.

It requires more password entering if opened without root, which
might prove to be annoying.

From my point of view, it fixes quite a few bugs, with theming of
this module, as this is the module with the biggest set of icons.
It also would work just fine with Wayland (although it could still
have issues with starting modules in Wayland session, considering
it doesn't set an env variable for XWayland). It also allows
modules that don't require root to be started without permissions,
which is convenient for at least two modules (and would be even
more convinient if Polkit started being used in YaST ;) ).

- From my point of view as user/admin, I would not use it this way, I
don't like having to enter the password that often. I use GTK, and
typically I start GUI yast from a terminal where I did "su -" for
whatever tasks I many need.
