    • Ravi Saive says:

      @Boomanikandan,
      During installation, have you selected GNOME Desktop? if yes you can switch to GUI mode by running following command at boot time..don’t forget to reboot the machine after running below command.

      # ln -sf /lib/systemd/system/runlevel5.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target
      

      After reboot, if system doesn’t boot into GUI mode, then follow guide at:

    Hi Ravi,
    I appreciate your efforts.
    I have installed the first dvd only. I am facing problem in installing tata photon max. Is installation of iso-dvd-2 necessary for running internet connectivity, necessary.

    Pl help.

    Ranvir

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Dear Ranvir,

      The first DVD is enough for installing all needed packages, the second DVD is optional, but regards to internet connectivity, you need to install some drivers related to your data card provider.

    Hi Ravi,
    Thank you for your quick response. How do I access the web using Centos 6.4. I set it up as a basic server with minimal installation. Everything is in command prompt and I dont have a deskktop like I would with Windows..

    I have been asked to access the web interface? How do I do that?

    Kind Regards

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Bro, I am confuse with your question, are you mean to access Desktop? or a Web Server? If it’s desktop, just install KDE or GNOME desktop environment. Just run the following command on the terminal to install Desktop.

      # yum groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"
