XForwarding with a minimal CentOS-RHEL install

Posted on: 04/11/2013

I always start with a minimal install when provisioning new systems which are usually deployed through Spacewalk but there are some instances where I have no deployment server, so after a DVD install I have a broken XForwarding which is quite easy to fix.

yum install xorg-x11-xauth xorg-x11-fonts*

It’s quite handy when scripted within a kickstart file, which is why I don’t always remember it 🙂 so documenting it on the blog keeps it accessible. You don’t need to plug in all the fonts but if you work with legacy applications or Oracle, you’ll want to have them on the system.

If you’ve played a lot with putty and need a remote session management tool, have a look at PAC Manager @ techmint.com
