Predict doesn't need to be run or installed as root for the program
to function. It can be installed anywhere.
The first time it runs it will go through the prompts, for the user
running the program and create a .predict directory under that users
home directory and then each time its run after that it will use the
files from that directory.
If the first time you run the program it was as root or with the sudo
command then the .predict directory will be created as owned by root
and normal users won't be able to update it, so predict will prompt
each time it is run..
