    I installed RHEL 6.0 (from a DVD distribution disc) on my laptop.
    Somehow during the installation, I was not prompted any choice for
    what packages to install - normally installation will give selections
    for different packages set. I tried on this laptop twice and I got
    same result - it only installed the very minimum packages and it is
    running text mode. I checked, there is no any X or gnome related rpm installed.

    So I am considering to manually install the gnome-required rpms. But
    here I get two questions:

    1) what is the most top-level rpm name for gnome GUI to run? is it gnome-desktop*.rpm ?

    2) I tried to use rpm -ivh --aid gnome-desktop*.rpm
    it still cannot installed the dependent rpms.
    question: do we have a decent way to let rpm install all the
    required rpms?

    Thanks.

    I would suggest you

    1. go to redhats website and reisgter a FREE 30 day trail of RHEL
    2. use the account to ebaled 'rhen_register' on the machine you want to download rpms yum packages ti
    3. 'yum update' to get all the latest versions or rpms already installed
    4. 'yum groupinstall "X Window System" Desktop' to isntall gnome desktop
    5. think about having a support account with redhat if this is a production service

    Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda4: Command-line `mount "/mnt/a3ffffea-7960-414c-b3be-2c747b60bb67"' exited with non-zero exit status 12: NTFS signature is missing.
    Failed to mount '/dev/sda4': Invalid argument
    The device '/dev/sda4' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
    Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a
    partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around
