How Do I Install a GUI with CentOS 6?

If CentOS has already been installed without a graphical interface, you can install this with the following commands:

yum -y groupinstall "Desktop""Desktop Platform""X Window System""Fonts"


If you would like this to be the default runlevel, you can edit /etc/inittab and set the default level to 5 instead of 3:

vi /etc/inittab



Save changes and reboot machine
