Re: Starting gnome after text-based install

Found the problem...

I have just dropped Centos 5 on a laptop with only 256M memory. Problem was 24M is shared with the video card so the installer insisted on text, not graphical install.

I DID install gnome and specified it as my interface. But when I do an init 5, I come up in X not Gnome.

What do I have to change to fix this aberrant behaviour?
There is a missing piece (one of many!) in the text install.

Even if you select Gnome as your workstation WIndows environment, not all of Gnome gets in. You still have to do:

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

Then edit inittab.
