I mean running as uid=0.
You can login as root, su to root, use sudo.

no, google says that is just a bad cache. two different threads i
say to just remove the whole cache with 'rm -fr /var/cache/yum/base':
however, I might use "yum clean cache" first.
OK, no longer a problem with these issues. I had to run 'rm -fr /var/
cache/yum/base'. Many thanks. I am impressed that you could Google
this issue up as I often find it hard to actually sum up situations
that I end up in with a short, concise search phrase.
New problem after the 'yum update'. Now I have both a CD/DVD-ROM and
a CD-ROM icon on the desktop. The device I have came with my G5, so I
assume that it is some sort of SuperDrive. Here are the specs:
