I have inherited a vm with 6.1 oracle linux server install on it. I don't have a linux background, so mostly I have been googling answers. The first hurdle was to get network working. Next I was going to try and get the desktop gui working. I found instructions here.
yum groupinstall "X Window System" Desktop "General Purpose Desktop" \ "Graphical Administration Tools" "Legacy X Window System compatibility" \ system-config-lvm
However I am getting a known error, but haven't been able to get past it.
I found directions on a foreign site, but still having issues.
