starting GUI on RH6
 
i've installed RH6 on a Dell laptop -- i can login and get a cmd line prompt -- how do i start the GUI -- i've tried 'startx' -- it returns Command Not Found... thx very much!

hope you have installed everything needed to run GUI, then in command prompt give "init 5" without "" and see what happens.

thx, output from < init 5 > --

> Applying Intel CPU microcode update: Calling the system activity data collector (sdac):
> Starting system logger:
> Starting irqbalance: [ OK ]
> Starting kdump: [ FAILED ]
> Retrigger failed udev events [ OK }
