If you are running programs that have a lot of libraries (OpenOffice spring to mind) under Gnome, then you will get a performance benefit from prelinking (not installed by default on ClearOS)...

Just install prelink (yum install prelink) then perform the initial prelink (prelink -avmR). The rpm installs a cron job ( /etc/cron.daily/prelink ) that will keep everything nicely updated.

As I understand from your append you have installed Gnome and have that running OK. Congratulations...

Additionally, you now want to update to a later version of gtk. That being true, you should start your own new thread (Press the greenish colour "New Thread" button near the bottom of the web-page) and give it a subject appropriate to your gtk upgrade problems. Upgrading gtk is completely Off Topic here as this thread is all about installing Gnome.

Sorry - I cannot understand what you are trying to do...

If you want remote terminal (no GUI) access to your ClearOS server from a Windows machine use putty and ssh protocol or WinSCP.

If you want remote GUI access displaying a Gnome desktop then run something like vnc-server on your ClearOS machine and configure it to use Gnome as the Window Manager. read... wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server for some help. There are both Windows and Linux vnc clients available to access a vnc-server.

Simon,

I suspect that those RPMs were not installed for some reason. You can query for their presence on your system with the following 2 commands, one at a time:

Code:


rpm -q rpmfusion-free-release
rpm -q rpmfusion-nonfree-release



Based on your question, I'd guess that they are not present on your system.

Re:Running Gnome on a ClearOS system 3 Years, 5 Months ago  
All,

With the latest glibc updates it appears that the Gnome desktop has a nasty habit of not showing the icons in the taskbar. This is a known issue with the CentOS 5.6 distro (google it).

I've found that editing my original repo file to include packages from CentOS 5.6 I386 will provide the needed glibc stuff to fix the icon missing issue, and it also gets you the latest firefox and thunderbird (if you use them).

Here's the contents of the new repo file:

Code:


# CentOS-Base.repo
#
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client.  You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.

This file can be found on my website: here

The file should be placed in:

Code:


/etc/yum.repos.d/



On the target system.

Note, you probably won't want to download all of the available updates from this repo.

Here's the list of packages I downloaded that fixed the missing icons problem:

Code:


May  5 13:08:11 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: glibc.i686 2.5-58.el5_6.3
May  5 13:08:13 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: nss.i386 3.12.8-4.el5_6
May  5 13:08:33 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: xulrunner.i386 1.9.2.17-3.el5
May  5 13:08:33 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: giflib.i386 4.1.3-7.3.3.el5
May  5 13:08:34 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: giflib-utils.i386 4.1.3-7.3.3.el5
May  5 13:08:37 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: nss-tools.i386 3.12.8-4.el5_6
May  5 13:08:41 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: kudzu.i386 1.2.57.1.26-1.el5.centos.1
May  5 13:08:42 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: paps.i386 0.6.6-20.el5
May  5 13:08:43 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: sed.i386 4.1.5-8.el5
May  5 13:08:44 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: jwhois.i386 3.2.3-12.el5
May  5 13:08:47 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: nscd.i386 2.5-58.el5_6.3
May  5 13:08:49 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: xorg-x11-font-utils.i386 1:7.1-3
May  5 13:08:56 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: glibc-headers.i386 2.5-58.el5_6.3
May  5 13:09:01 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: glibc-devel.i386 2.5-58.el5_6.3
May  5 13:09:32 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: thunderbird.i386 2.0.0.24-17.el5.centos
May  5 13:09:54 picoitx yum(yumex): Updated: firefox.i386 3.6.17-1.el5.centos



I'd STRONGLY suggest you disable the repo from your system after downloading the above files, using the following commands:

Code:


cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
mv ./ClearOS-CentOS-Base.5.6.repo ./ClearOS-CentOS-Base.5.6.repo.disabled



Let me know if you run into any issues.
