Uninstalling XWindow RPMS

By cjcknight ·
I have recently installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 on a Dell PowerEdge 2650. The problem that I have got upon installing Red Hat Linux is that on the 2650 it doesn't give you an option to setup a server based on your requirements because it is using open management software from Dell. So what happened was, that it installed the whole package Red Hat packaged on to the server. My inquiry is on how to uninstall all the X Window package from that server


Thanks in advance,

PS

if someone has recently installed a Red Hat Linux 7.2 on a Dell PowerEdge 2650 by booting it on the Red Hat Linux CD then that would also be a request on what are the instructions on doing it. Because from my experience, using the RH CD, it doesn't recognize the storage device (SCSI Hard Drive).

Use the command rpm -qa | grep XFree, that will give you a list of all the X-windows packages.

For each package perform a rpm -e <package name>.
During this process, the rpm might compliant that some other packages depend on the package that youare uninstalling. Don't remember the list ... but it is advisable to uninstall those package as well. Since they don't function without x-windows.

For you second question, generally speaking linux should have no problem detecting most scsi device. However the installation program might not be able to recognize the scsi host adapter. Try this and see if it works.

Using cd, boot into linux installation. At the boot prompt type "expert noprobe" then enter. Select no when asked for a driver disk. Follow through the setup until the part where you can add device. Go to add device and select scsi as the device type. Select Adaptec AACRAID (aacraid). Specify the module parameters as follow:-

aacraid_pciid=0x1028,0x0A,0x1028,0x0121

Thatshould enable linux to recognize the scsi host adapter and allow you to access the scsi devices.

In my experience, this happens when attempting to boot into expert mode. The scripts are different on the Dell CD and Linux CD. If you boot into graphical mode as a standard user and do the setup from there, you can go back and change the configuration files to your own liking.

See what happens
