Unable to install xorg-x11 via yum
 
Hi.

Using "Fedora Core release 6 (Zod)", I'm trying to install 'xorg-11' with YUM:
Code:

[]# yum install xorg-x11
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: xorg-x11
Nothing to do

However, I'm able to install it with another Fedora Core (release 2), so I guess that 'xorg-x11' does realyy exist.

This is my '/etc/yum.conf'
Code:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=0
plugins=1
metadata_expire=1800
timeout=7

                                                                                                                     
[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Base
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/$releasever/$basearch/os/
                                                                                                                     
[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Released Updates
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/$releasever/$basearch/

What am I doing wrong? Thank you very much

Hi guarriman

There isn't a package xorg-x11 in FC6 (can't remember if there was in FC2, I'll take your word for it :)). There are a number of packages which start with xorg-x11, like xorg-x11-server-Xorg, so you could either pick some of those and let yum resolve the dependencies (for an ultra-minimal system), or use the built-in group "X Window System":

Code:

$ yum groupinstall "X Window System"
This should install everything you need to use X (including all the fonts etc) just as if you had selected it during the initial installation.

You can search for the xorg packages by doing
Code:

$yum list | grep -i xorg
A list will be printed and you can then install the packages you need from the list.
