Loki Setup : Only Super user can execute setup ?

I am using Loki Setup. I think Only a super user can install the packages.

I dont know why this has been done like this.

Going through the code. i found that it is checking if user has write permissions
into /usr/local/bin which is the default binary_path.

it places the symbolic links there.

Since, only root has access to that directory. Hence Loki Setup allows only root
to install any files.

Can i change this binary path to my local HOME Directory ?.

Why INstallation directory and Binary Path (SymLinks directory) cant be the same.

Loki does not allow it to be the same.

Please clarify on this.

I want to know can i modify this binary path or remove the binary_path (symlinks_path) itself from the source.

i want to know if there are any side effects to this ?

dude read README.xml !!!!!!!!!!

by default the installer won't create symlinks and also you can chose another bin path
