Not actually true.

If you are running the secondary copies of yum as a non-privileged user,
then this works - for some values of 'works' ;-)

What I have observed is that during updates to the repository data,
non-privileged searches fail, either because of inconsistent metadata or
with some ugly python backtraces indicating problems accessing the db.

Once the root-owned yum finishes modifying the cache files, searches
work for non-privileged users as expected.

I don't know if doing this is a good idea, or even expected behaviour -
ymmv :-)

Cheers,

Bryn.
