Maybe you and I have a different concept of 'Servers'. But I tend to
install @core only and then remove items whenever I can for a server.
If it is a bad day I'll install X b/c something requires it but for
servers I try to avoid anything beside the barest minimal I can have.
Maybe you have a different concept of security, but I don't want any
user on the server installing software, no matter what.
right - which is why I wouldn't install PK on a server.
yum doesn't allow users to install pkgs, only root.
