stup_guy23eHi All!
May I know... CentOS Server CD is text-based interface?
I choose Graphical User Interface during the installation
But after installation done, the system restart, the system is run in text mode
How to go in graphical mode?
helfreznot available on servercd
you will need to install a graphical environment, as the servercd does not come with one
Gomer221_lol, I was just battling the same issue myself today.
helfrezthe environment are available to install from the standard media 4cd set or DVD
centos is pretty good with picking defaults and using the dialog to configure stuff
you should be able to yum groupinstall the X environment and the desktop environment and get up and running
stup_guy23eSo I have to re-install using the 4cd in order to run graphical interface?
helfrezno see previous message
CCFreak2K<helfrez> you should be able to yum groupinstall the X environment and the desktop environment and get up and running
stup_guy23eerm... I'm now logged in to the CentOS
[root@localhost ~]#
what to type ?
helfrezif you are comfortable with X configuration (in the event defaults dont work) go with groupinstall...if you are not, then I would recommend a cd or dvd reinstall
stup_guy23eSorry, I don't know how to use linux in text base
helfrezthen you want to use the cds and do a upgrade or reinstall
stup_guy23ethe 4cds CentOS is suitable to use as a web server?
helfrezif something goes wrong and you arent confortable with command line, it will just leave a bad taste in your mouth
its the same packages, servercd is just a scaled down package set they put together for people that dont need guis
saves time and only 1cd to carry
stup_guy23eI see. Thanks a lot!
helfrezthe 4cdsset or dvd comes with your choice of graphical desktop at install time
np enjoy
CCFreak2KThe radeon Xorg driver should in theory work with any Radeon card, right?
stup_guy23eOur web server will run in Java environment, which packages should I install?
helfrezgenerally speaking yes
CCFreak2KI guess I'll have to spend more time dicking with xorg.conf.
helfrezati driver will sub in when radeon doesnt work
you can try that one instead
there are some cards that wont work with that older versions of radeon without a little luv
CCFreak2KIt's a fairly recent card. It's not listed in the radeon card listing in the xorg log (newest listed in log is R423, mine is R430).
helfrezstup_guy23e, depends on what your environment requires, you will want to check your documentation and get a good idea of the software requirements before diving in
stup_guy23e, it will save you alot of pain and suffering down the road to do some prep and research beforehand
