Centos 7 Xfce ISO

Post by jsalpha2 » 2016/07/19 12:27:05

Is there an easy way to install CentOS 7 with Xfce4? Are there any plans to have an downloadable ISO for CentOS 7 with Xfce4?
Saw an article recently promoting CentOS 7 with Xfce4 as the desktop and would like to give it a try again. Last time I tried was right after CentOS 7 came out, and I could never get things to work. Thanks

CentOS does not ship xfce at all but it is in EPEL for CentOS 7. Once you've isntalled you will need to yum --enablerepo=extras install epel-release and then you can yum list xfce\* to see the packages available.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!
