root permissions for check-update?


Under yum-3.2.27-2.fc12, I find

  yum check-update

correctly reports available updates when run as a non-root user. However, with yum-3.2.28-5.fc14 on another machine, the above command returns no packages when run as a non-root user and returns 0, i.e. no packages available. It produces the expected result only when run as root. Should check-update be run as root now?

(If check-update should be run as root, perhaps it should say so to non-root users and return 1? For non-root users, it currently looks like there are never any updates available! That had me confused for a while...)

Alternatively, have I done something stupid to make this happen...?
