Feature #309112, revision 1
Title: YaST Software Management: Ask for root password only when applying
changes

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Atri Bhattacharya (badshah400)

Description:
At present the module yast sw_single can be accessed from the desktop menus
(KDE, GNOME, XFCE, etc.) by a single click. When one starts up the software
manager, however, it immediately requests for root password. One may launch the
module for othe purposes like looking at the contents of an installed rpm,
looking at subscribed repositories, etc. which should not require root
privilege.

The request is to ask for root password only when one applies selected changes
to repositories or packages, instead of doing it when the software manager is
launched.
