Re: [K12OSN] Frustration with RHEL6.1



You will need to instal again and select "customize now" on the screen where you selected desktop install.  Once done, you have a file in /root called anaconda.log which is a kickstart file for replicating that install.

OR... something is hoaed with yum in the repo files or network access to the repos.
