As I said "seems" to be invalid, my point was more that if you are saying that the command is not good because: "a regular user can't copy and paste the above code and execute it unless they become root" Then it "seems" an invalid point as you also have to be root to run the rpm install. On the other hand, if I have read this wrong and what you are saying is the he needs to advise one to "become root" before running, then look above that command on the wiki page because he *does* state that point. Again, "seems" invalid as a regular user must also become root to install the rpm. If I have mis-read this then I am sorry but from what I am reading these are the possible points I take from the statement. I do not mean to offend, I just still do not see the validity in that point.
