use yum in simple user in specific path


Hi all

i hava a problem to solve:
at moment i hava an alternative db in rpm, in this way a simple user can install package without root privilege.
now, someone know if is possible do a similar thing with yum?
i want that a simple user can use yum and install package in a specific path similar at rpm --prefix

thanks for help
Michele

sudo is the best tool to use to allow root privilege to non-root users.

yum is just a front-end/layer over rpm, so it should work I guess.
Give it a try and let us know.
