FC4 yum install gnome and xorg


hi,

I installed FC4 a few days ago and did so without any xserver to just run from the command line. However, i noticed that i would like to be able to boot x when i have to copy long error codes and so forth. Is there a way with yum i could install GNOME and the needed xserver (xorg i think) to install?

thanks

and yes i tried yum -y install xorg and yum -y install gnome

Run "man yum", there is a guide there somewhere that shows you how to install packages in certain grous. You could also do
Code:
yum list | grep -i gnome
A list of gnome related packages will be listed and you can then install them using yum. If xorg is not installed, this will also install xorg as a dependency.
