IIRC X Windows wouldn't start, which I attributed to installing
sylpheed-claws.  Even after using Yum to remove X Windows, then
re-installing, X Windows failed to install via yum.  Presumably
Sylpheed-claws worked fine, but some weirdness with X Windows there.

Wheras, using the GUI, it went smoothly. ?
