installing Gnome from a shell (Red Hat 9)


Hi,

I have installed a minimal Red Hat 9 system - without any GUI. How can I add X and Gnome so that I have the graphical user interface. I know that I can do "rpm -i", but I do not have any idea which packages I have to install in which order to get things going...

Any helping hand is highly welcome.

Many thanks,
Rainer

This may seem a little too obvious, but can you re-run setup and add X and Gnome? Not sure if you can just mount the first CD (I am assuming you installed from CD) and run setup again. If I remember correctly, RH has a very easy to use GUI for installation.
