Linux Booting In CLI Mode


Yesterday I Installed Linux 6.1 On My System. When I Boot My System It Boots Up In CLI Mode. Have I Done Wrong By Selecting Basic Server Instead Of Desktop During Installation?

Yes, you should've selected desktop along with the default option, but you should be able to add desktop as long as you have an internet connection.
What disrobution are you using?
If debian:
Quote:
apt-get install <whatever desktop>
rpm & slack ditros will have a different command.

Hi,

given that you state "Linux 6.1" I'm guessing you are using some sort of RHEL derivative. If this is true you can use yum to setup your machine with gui desktop. Try running the following as root.
Code:
yum groupinstall basic-desktop desktop-platform general-desktop graphical-admin-tools x11
HTH,

Evo2.

If you don't have the network up yet: backup /etc/yum.repos.d then
Code:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
sudo rm /etc/yum.repos.d/*
sudo cat > local.repo
[local]
name=Local CD Repo
baseurl=file:///mnt/cdrom <or according path so "yum install ..." will use the CD\DVD>
when doing that I always miss "apt-cdrom add"

Actually, RHEL based distros usually include a repo file like 'CentOS-Media.repo' which is the Install Media repo.
Absolutely no need to blow away current files. In fact no need to do that at all; you can just create one in an editor if necessary.
