yum reinstall xorg-x11 not working
I am not able to see my GUI..so trying to reinstall xserver...
I am sure my yum is clearly working for other packages like gcc...
Can anyone please help me...
Any help will be appreciated
Thanks in advance...
can you run this
1)rpm -qa |grep xorg
2)cat /etc/inittab |grep id
and post the output
Actually the problem is I have not configured my local yum repositary properly ..
I mean grouplist, groupinstall etc are not working..but I am able to install packages like
yum install gcc...
How can i configure my yum so that grouplist and groupinstall will work...
do you mean you've created your own repo but your repo is not working?
btw i never use group install because if example i want to install
just one , eg yum install kdebase. its will auto install all the dependencies,
but if you want to use that way, i have tested on my system as following
follow text 100% from grouplist and dont forget to add ""
Using yum :
1) # yum search <name> .. ( or part of name ).
e.g. # yum search xorg-X11
... to find the correct package name ...
2) yum install xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-server-common
Thanks router, kundfl
My question is yum install gcc works why not yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
Yes , that's a problem : Fedora 9 isn't really supported
any more , updates stopped 3 months ago.
So instead of risking a total disaster with yum, if you
try to solve the issue, why not just install the tools,
you need ?
# yum install \
g++ glibc-headers libtool intltool make automake autoconf
i pretty sure this is not because fedora unsupported issue
because i use fedora 8 still can install, but can you not to use sudo
mean use root direct as root , see below
Install 33 Package(s)
Update 0 Package(s)
Remove 0 Package(s)
^CTotal download size: 63 M
Is this ok [y/N]: ^CExiting on user Command
but as suggested by knudfl, install what u need is the best
If you're maintaining your own yum repository and want the packages grouped, you have to configure 'comps.xml'. You can copy the one from the CD into your repo as a starting point and customize it as needed. Once it's in place, use this command to tell yum to update your repo with the group information (where YOURREPO is the path to your yum repo):
Thanks a lot...it helped...
Once again thanks to everyone.....
