Xorg-server Processes Exist


Is there a Linux BASH command to see if any version of Xorg-server is installed on a RHEL5 or RHEL6 server? I have rpm -q xorg-x11-server-common. I only receive something that states it's not installed or is installed. What I would like to see, is that if a version is installed, the command used will provide version results.

I don't know what process (ps) to look for on a server that does have the files installed because I've never seen it.

Thanks for your help.

$ X -version

$ which X

Although I doubt a server would have X installed. Or still installed once moved to production. Depends on the server though.

Either command should work - the first will tell you "command not found" if it isn't installed. The second will tell you "no X in..."


But there is no difference between a server and a desktop - only what software is installed. Server editions usually have a different default set though.
