Installing a graphical desktop after not installing on init
 
I want to install the graphical desktop to Linux ES 4. I had to install without gnome or X for a custom install and now I want the graphical enviroment. IS there a SIMPLE way to add the graphical enviroment?

yeah just run system-config-packages and add on whatever you want.

Thanks for your quick responce. I get this when I try that.

[root@host ~]# system-config-packages
Unable to import gtk module. This may be due to running without
$DISPLAY set. Exception was:
could not open display
[root@host ~]#

system-config-packages works on top of X windows. If you have good internet connection you can try yum install gnome, or yum groupinstall gnome.
