    Linux Installation

    I installed Redhat 9.0 on one of my test server with minimal components selected (No GUI, XServer etc). Now I want to install XServer & Gnom but unable to find any easy way to do this.

    rpm -i G* ends with lot of dependency requirements.

    My Question is, Can we install packages in the manner that all dependant packages are installed too? I don't want to install sub packages first and then go with parent package. This is quite hectic task.

    To be frank, components like Xserver and Gnome should be installed on installation of OS. Else you either need to have alot of time and patience, or you simply reinstall.

    Yes, I know but I am keeping reinstall as the last option. If you remember during setup it gives a checkbox to check the dependant packages by it self and install them automatically. Can we specify such parameter later with rpm command. You can say inverse to --nodeps option.
