    Note: Presently (i19) the collector requires that you INSTALL as root, but you can RUN the collector as a non-root/admin user.  Collectors running as non-root, will not automatically be started when the systems boots/reboots.

    It is possible to install and run as non-root/admin, by using the generic tarball download (I've done it), but we don't have a knowledge base article written on it yet.

    I would love to run a collector on my RedHat OpenShift instance but don't have root access.  The fact that root access is required to just start one up is unfortunate and not very well called out in the wizard.   I followed the wizard directions carefully and didn't discover this until getting install failure message.  Looking forward to a simplified version of collector for PaaS who just have access to our app directory and want to sumologic our application logs.
