Hello, I have done following steps: Press Ctrl+Alt+F2 By root login, I entered following command : yum groupinstall basic-desktop desktop-platform x11 fonts Then I reboot system; only blank screen appears ; not even cursor. Then I tried this : yum groupinstall -y ' X Windows System' yum groupinstall -y ' Desktop ' Then I open */etc/inittab* via text editor and change following line: id:3:initdefault: To: id:5:initdefault: Then give command to start the GUI: $ init 5 but screen stop responding after giving message " Starting jexec services ". After that I reboot system, Then I run. $ startx It has loaded some packages but failed to load and stop there. Then I tried this gnome-session, gnome-panel and gnome-applets. It has said everything is installed. After this, I tried this: yum -y groupinstall "X Window System" "Desktop" "Fonts" "General Purpose Desktop" upto 83 MB installation Then I reboot and entered startx it has given following error and stopped Loading extension GLX FATAL: Module fbcon not found.
