[SOLVED] 6.2 minimal installation

Postby nobody » 2012/04/13 04:14:21

Hi,

I've just installed CentOS 6.2 and I selected minimal installation. The installation was fine, but since the minimal selection does not include network installation, I have to install network package manually from the CD, without network, I cannot use yum to install X windows and desktop. What are packages from DVD and how can I install network from DVD in command line to install X windows and graphic desktop?

Thank you.

You can use yum.

Code: Select all
yum --disablerepo=* repolist all
less /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo
yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=c6-media grouplist -v
yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=c6-media list

Thanks for the commands, which minimal network packages (for ethernet connection) and xorg packages should I install for? There are so mange packages, I guess I don't have to install all of them. Also, the "yum install xorg" did not work, the error was no such packages, I guess I have to insall each individual package from the DVD.

Re: 6.2 minimal installation

initscripts can configure the network. NetworkManager is not necessary. system-config-network-tui might help.

How about:
yum groupinfo -v x11
yum groupinstall x11
(With c6-media, naturally.)

[SOLVED] 6.2 minimal installation

Postby pschaff » 2012/04/13 17:40:05

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

No argument with the advice you have been given, but if you really want a GUI environment it would probably be easier to just chalk the minimal install up to a learning experience and re-install a Desktop system, and pick other desired groups/packages while you are at it.

Even experienced users may have difficulties bootstraping up from a minimal install to a usable GUI system with networking.
