    if your machine has gnome installed, you can use eog, but even if it isn't installed you can install eog, but it might have a lot of deps

    There are a couple image viewers that will run in the framebuffer, so no desktop required.

    I use fbi. Not sure if Scientific Linux has it available as a package or not.

    The ImageMagick package seems to be installed on my SL5 installation. It includes the commandline tool 'display' to display image files of many formats. ImageMagick includes a suite of tools for image manipulation and viewing, all accessible from the commandline. There are also bindings to the tools for many scripting languages such as Perl, enabling you to create image manipulation applications that leverage the power of ImageMagick tools.
