    Hi @Mustafa3,

     

    to run as root you should also use the 'sudo' command before the yum as in ' sudo yum blah blah blah........'

    you will then be prompted for your root password. On entering it successfully the following commands will be executed. 

     

    This is is a safety feature meant to thwart hackers or your visiting cousin changing system files for mischief.
