Forgot to install GUI
I forgot to install the Graphical user interface with my fedora core 6 install. How can I install this afterwarts ????

If it's a new install, I'd simply reinstall it instead of starting to fiddle with missing packages...

Yes yes, but I already did the whole settings part ;)

the hard road...
Re-install would be way easier, but if you want difficult road:

Those links should contain everything you need for a Gnome X-system I beileve, assuming you have all the necessary dev tools installed (gcc. python, java, mono, and perl), and if not you will need everything in these folders here:

We did it fairly easy on our Centos,


yum groupisntall gnome


yum install gnome system-config-network system-config-services
Startup GNOME:


startx &
you have to put in your startup script if you want the visual to start automatically or just start it from the command line (much more because you can turn on or off the visual when you want)
