Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

Installing the Graphical Window System (X.org-X11) and the Default Desktop Environment on CentOS 6

But- that didn't happen

so into the DvD drive went a Puppy4 cd & thus create four new partitions & erase the FreeDos

followed by Mint10 onto sda1 & /home onto sda6
with sda4 in reserve, for future use.

works well ...

It was developed and tested on an ubuntu 8.04 system following a pilot Slackware installation in a VirtualBox virtual machine but nothing in the procedure is specific to that environment.

A file system is populated with the files a) required for GRUB...

Install AntiX 8.2 Final on External Flash Drive on Asus EEE 900

Posted 07-31-2009 at 01:29 PM by rokytnji

I made up a how to install tutorial with screenshots on my Google Blog site. Anybody interested in doing what I did can view it at Yet Another Technology Site.

I am just a Knuckle Dragging Tattoed Harley Riding Biker that just happens to prefer using Linux instead of Windows.

So take that into account when reading the article.
