What is the name of the RPM? Or how do I start X on the server? as it seems like no related packages were loaded at the time installation. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, as I am from a Windows environment and this is my 1st Linux installation. Thank you!
This was asked here before, and answered....a quick search brings up this thread:
On another note...if you're not paying for RHEL, or have a real NEED for a server-grade distro, you should consider loading something else. RHEL without support leaves you without updates/bugfixes/security patches/online repositories. In short, if you want to load any software that's not on the DVD, you have to compile the code from source, or install an RPM that *MAY* work from another source. Loading CentOS (essentially the free version of RHEL), gets you this, as does loading any other community-supported distro. If you are paying for RHEL, then the RHEL knowledgebase would have the answers for your installation, as would their phone support.
