I have been following tutorial:
in order to try and get gvim working with SSH forwarding.
When I run 'gvim', I get:
E233: cannot open display
According to the above tutorial, I need to run 'xhost +', but to my disappointment, 'xhost' command does not exist.
So I search for 'xhost rpm package' and come to this link:
After I download and try to install the package, I get dependencies errors:
[03:10:04][root@host:/home]# rpm -ivh xorg-x11-server-utils-7.1-5.el5_6.1.i386.rpm

I normally use Ubuntu and find that dependencies are taken care of themselves mostly, is there a way to perhaps update my repositories or something to include 'newer' packages like 'xhost'? (so that dependencies can take care of themselves)?
