Prevent installers from running as root
Authored by: _merlin on Nov 25, '03 06:45:14PM

This is not a smart thing to do. There are applications that require root access to work. Things that install kernel extensions, installing keyboard layouts under 10.1, temporarily loading drivers, and a few other things. If you don't want to give a program root access, don't enter your password! Don't screw things up like this.
