VPS server with no web browser

Post by cowboyup910 » 2011/06/28 19:30:33

Hello,

so I ordered my VPS and it came preconfig with CentOS 5 + VNC.

I am able to connect to it via RealVNC on my Windows host. I get to my desktop but since it minimal no web browser.

Anyone have a command I can run to install Firefox. Or is there another method. I can download from within.


I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.

[i]yum -y install firefox[/i] from the command line as root or with sudo. It's 3.6.18, if you need something newer you'll need to check for another repo or just download from Mozilla.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

You should read about [url=http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=14408&forum=47]Installing Software[/url], [url=http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/SourceInstalls]Source Installs[/url], and [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories]Repositories[/url], and note the warnings and advice about installing and configuring the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities]yum priorities plugin[/url]. Non-core repos should have a higher numeric value, which is a lower priority. Lower is "better" as in golf scores.

For flash and other multimedia packages see the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS]TipsAndTricks/MultimediaOnCentOS[/url] Wiki article.
