That may be the relevant variable in my case as well; I'll watch more
carefully.  I did get a >5.5 OS install to work, and I may have selected
only the "server" group instead of that and the "server gui" group.

I'm mostly happy using text configs, except I keep running into cases
where the manuals or helpful people on the net assume I'm using the GUI,
so I've gotten in the habit of installing it when I get a choice.
