I'm trying to install x-windows on a remote CentOS 5.3 box. Here's what I did so far:
$ yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment" $ echo PATH=$PATH:/etc/X11 $ xinit
I had no problem with the yum install. I set the path to '/etc/X11' because that's where I saw xinit. But when I called xinit, I got the following error:
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "X" in PATH Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/bin is in your path and that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server for your display. Possible server names include: Xorg X.Org displays xinit: Server error. Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console
So, I'm thinking X wasn't really installed. So then I check the '/usr/X11R6' directory and all I see is "mkfontdir" and "mkfontscale". Isn't "Xorg" supposed to be in there?
What have I done wrong?
