Hi All,

Short description of the problem:
- I would like to install the complete 'xfce' desktop on CentOS5.x

I've tried:
yum groupinstall xfce
yum groupinstall xfce4
yum groupinstall xfce*
yum groupinstall xfce4*
yum groupinstall xfce4.2
yum groupinstall xfce4.1
yum groupinstall xfce4.3
yum groupinstall xfce4.4
yum groupinstall xfce4.4.2
nothing worked

then I've started googling the net and .... ____finally____  I found
the magic combination. One very merciful soul posted the golden combination.

yum groupinstall "XFCE-4.4"

This did the trick.   God bless him/her and all his relatives. He/She
deserved it.

Is there a way to check which packages are available for the installation as
a 'group' using yum ?
