Comment: Fedora has always required the root password (Score 3, Informative) 496

To my knowledge (I've been using Fedora since its inception), Fedora has always required root credentials, or the user be in the sudoers list to install software packages. Only in Fedora 12 was that not the default behavior, and there was a BIG uproar over that change (see the VERY lengthy discussion on this issue on the RedHat Bugzilla report -, which has since change the default behavior BACK to requiring root credentials to install software.

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
