I just installed Centos from the single sever I386 cd. I am trying to set up a web server (apache),so I can start learning how to use it. 'My qu8estion is, and forgive me for sounding like a idiot, but how can I start the GUI from the command line?

Thx.

Hi,
I take it that a GUI is not actually installed so you will need to run something like "yum groupinstall kde" which will install KDE and its dependencies for the GUI. Once this has been installed if you reboot the system I believe it should load up into the KDE desktop. If not let me know and I will find the commands you need to use to make it load on boot.

try typing

kdm

at the command prompt.  it should give you the existing KDE desktop that is installed.  if not try "gdm" which is for gnome desktop. if neither works

then

yum groupinstall kde

OR

yum install kde
