Fortunately, could only get server via the eval program….btw, I strongly dislike rhel.

Via RedHat:

yum groupinstall "X Window System" Desktop
  • Edit /etc/inittab for runlevel 5 (change the 3 to a 5)
  • /etc/sysconfig/desktop needs to contain:
  • Install vmware-tools (can do this via cli), mainly ./vmware*.pl (read the INSTALL)
  • Enjoy?
