    yum groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" ...


    I have a new install of CentosOS and have successfully run the following command:

    yum groupinstall "X Window System" "KDE (K Desktop Environment)"

    What do I need to do next to get KDE to start up for the console?

    Will confirm that it is working. If it is great! Now check that /etc/inittab is set for runlevel 5 which is graphical boot. Otherwise you will need to login then manually start the X server.
