10.5: Join 'wheel' group as possible fix for system issues
Authored by: Zeitkind on Apr 07, '08 05:18:44PM

Though I don't really get the hint or the reason to get memeber of the wheel group, most system files and dirs are 644, 744 or 700 or simular, so getting into wheel won't really change a lot regarding basic file-realted security. The "hint" is kinda strange and I don't think it will help a lot with problem, but has the power to create problems. If an installer really makes troubles and you know what you do, a sudo is the only way to go - if at all.
