Hi all,
I use a Suse7.1 distribution. 
I need to use rpm to install kedevelop application.

I can not install the packages with rpm application, if the session is not root.

Does it normal ?

I would like to avoid to install packages in root mode.

Do anybody know if it is possible to run rpm in non root mode ?

When I try to install packages with rpm either in xterm session  either with kpackages application, the answer is the same, : '... must be super user to run rpm... 

I appreciate any help.
