Exclamation CentOS 7 + Cinnamon GUI installation


Hi,

I am a newbie in Linux and SSH in general (very, very newbie) but I can follow instructions

So... I have a fresh CentOS 7 minimal installed and I was trying to install Gnome or Cinnamon GUI but both failed and gave me some errors.

The latest update is for Cinnamon and I got the following:

Code:
[root@CentOS-73-64-minimal ~]# startx

Any soul that could help me out fixing this so I can get more into Linux?

Many thanks.

If you've done a minimal (CLI) install, then a lot of stuff needed for a GUI simply won't be there; hence complaints like "EGL_MESA_drm_image required".

Sorting this out is more than I'd care to do, and I'd start again with the Gnome installation disk. Gnome has a lot of things that CentOS uses, so you need to leave it installed, even if you want to use something else.

If you aren't keen on Gnome, enable the EPEL repository
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
and set priorities
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
Then you can install Cinnamon or Mate.
