Hi,

I installed RHEL6 into a Virtual Machine on Vmware workstation 9. For some reason it's not booting into GUI mode. I did select Virtual Host, X windows and General Purpose Desktop to be installed!. I've attached a screenshot can you please help me?

Did you try logging on and then startx? Linux server installs usually don't have a GUI as default.

Thanks I tried that and it worked but I only got a very basic desktop! I can't see any kind of Virtual Machine Manager console!

How much resources are you making available to the VM? You could run it in text mode, ssh into the VM and redirect the graphical interfaces xterm etc.

Which desktop are you looking for? You have gnome.

What is your goal with this virtual RHEL6 btw? Your initial question is answered, for experimenting with Linux in a virtual environment, you can get prebuilt VM's or install CentOS for example.
