hey, i installed my core 2 server a while back without any of the graphical bits a bobs and have it as a command line only - but now i want to use some of the graphical things in it now that the hardware has a bit more juice in it. but i dont really fancy rebuilding the whole of fedora.

at the moment i have run a "yum install gnome*" and it is downloading a load of packages and has resolved the dependices.

but after that i dont really know what else to do to get it working.

anyone else with some ideas?

Ieuuk, are they on the original FC2 CD's? Have you tried 'system settings -add/remove applications'?

its a command line - it doesnt have the graphical desktop to go to add/remove applications to add the graphical desktop - sorry, i didnt really explain it that well

Okay, but that was just some more server stuff. Let me get all the standard packages for Gnome and make sure you've got them all in place.
