    Necessary Files for MINIMUM X-Windows -- Pl. Help


    Dear Linux Gurus,

    I am new to the following Problem.
    I have Console User Interface (CUI)...the traditional UNIX interface.

    I want to manually download rpm files to enable GUI i.e
    Linux Desktop (GUI).

    I dont even need KDE etc. Its enough if I have xterm to work.

    How to identify the files to enable the MINI-X Windows for my
    Linux.- the minimum most possible.

    Thank you for the anticipated help.
    shiva.

    Which distro?

    I don't know the answer, but if I had to guess I would install packages for:
    • xorg-x11
    • xorg-x11-server
    • xorg-x11-fonts
    • xorg-x11-libs


    You should get complaints about dependencies if this is wrong, that will hopefully lead you to the solution.
