I want to do GUI based installation but xclock command is not found. I have checked, I don't have xclock at all by finding it.

 # xclock
-bash: xclock: command not found

If I search x11 I found following:

# find / -name X11

I don't think Xorg X11 is installed, because I can't see bin path of X11 in my PATH variable.

So the challenge is to install this package on my box. It does not have internet so I can not run yum command.

X11 Forwarding is also yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.

Anyone can tell me the RPM URL to download and install?

And suggestion what's the way out.

I am using following distribution.

Output of /proc/version file:

Oracle Linux Server release 6.4
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.4 (Santiago)

Oracle Linux derives from RHEL/CentOS so I would expect the application to be available in a similarly named package. Searching on a CentOS 6.x system I have here turns up the following package:

$ repoquery -q -f */xclock

You can peak inside packages using repoquery if you know the name like so:

$ repoquery -q -l xorg-x11-apps.x86_64 | grep xclock

To install:

$ yum install xorg-x11-apps.x86_64

I'm able to resolve this issue after installing the library xorg-x11-apps.

Run the command as root user:

yum install xorg-x11-apps
