Re: man pages don't work

Man must uncompress and make a temporary copy to display. Right now I'm looking at man tar and did some displays for directories. Do yours match?

Re: assistance with installing and then starting xwindows.

If you do [code]yum grouplist[/code] you might see this.

X Window System

Do a group install on that and it will resolve dependencies for you. But, keep an aye out for other things you'll want too, maybe gnome or kde.

[code]yum --help;man yum[/code]

should be useful.

yumex throws a "Error in yum setup"

I'm not sure this is related, but from the original yum.repos.d/CentOSBas* file we see this. # If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the # remarked out baseurl= line instead. I see that you have both enabled and some messages about duplicates. Maybe that's a starting p...
