I installed CentOS 6.3 Minimal on VMWare Player, and I realized how 'minimal' the setup is...

Don't have network connectivity. From what I searched on google, I need to edit the file


but since I don't have any editor installed (as far as I know), I don't know how to edit the file.

How do I edit the file????

It's virtually guaranteed that vi is installed, and maybe pico. Search Google for a vi tutorial.

  • sed is there, too. pico is not on any CentOS 6.3 that I can see. nano is on all but minimal. – Skaperen Nov 10 '12 at 16:55
