yum install java
Now THAT is a problem. Generally speaking I hate Java with a passion, precisely because it's one of the most ornery pieces of software I've ever had to deal with (and I try to avoid it as much as possible). At least in my experience, it doesn't manage its memory usage very well either (though hopefully that's been fixed in newer versions?).aaron6 said:I'd like to give this a try but one of the prerequisites for Siptosis is Java 1.5
I figured this to be a basic install--but still haven't successfully installed. Has anyone found clear steps on how to install Java 1.5 from a Elastix 1.3 install?
Whereupon Linux returned the dreaded words: command not foundFor those on a CentOS-based system, here are the steps:
1. Start up X-Windows: xinit
#Next step not needed for KDE. See http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=2483 wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/nautilus-sendto-0.7-5.fc6.i386.rpm && rpm -Uvh --nodeps nautilus-sendto-0.7-5.fc6.i386.rpm yum grouplist #Shows list of available groups # Substitute "KDE (K Desktop Environment)" for "GNOME Desktop Environment" if you prefer. #Not tested yum groupinstall "X Window System" "GNOME Desktop Environment" firefox startx #goto 127.0.0.1 in firefox. Some pages require flash plugin. Click manual install and install the yum repo version. yum install flash-plugin #logoff x
Yes, I did install all those, and I also created the xorg.conf file that they put on the Nerd Vittles page (they must have done that in the past 24 hours). This is a basic Elastix install from the ISO, with very little added (just things like Webmin), and as far as I know I've never installed any "X packages."ramoncio said:wiseoldowl, did you follow all the instructions?
With this commands you install the basic X files. This includes xinit.
yum -y install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb
yum -y install qt4
yum -y install xterm
yum -y install libXScrnSaver.i386
EDIT: I'm not sure about that. I've done all tests remotely using ssh, so maybe this machine already had some X packages installed.
Maybe I am not making myself clear - I have not installed ANY desktop of any type. I am running a pretty much barebones Elastix installation as it comes off the ISO - I added Webmin and I think phpMyAdmin and that was it. No desktop, no x environment. You guys are all talking way over my head on this stuff (I'm not even sure what you mean by "occasional local access with a gui to 127.0.0.1" - what are you TALKING about? I know that 127.0.0.1 is the local loopback address but in this context that phrase makes no sense to me). I think the problem is that you Linux guys are assuming far too much knowledge on my part - just because I can get around in FreePBX and Asterisk doesn't mean I know the first thing about Linux. I'm vaguely aware that there are two competing "desktops" (actually I thought there were more) but had no idea when I got into this project that I would even need to think about something like installing a desktop environment.dicko said:wiseoldowl:
I believe that startx (or startxfce4 or whatever desktop you installed), which better wraps xinit if you have a "desktop" would be more appropriate than xinit per-se if I followed this thread correctly. (for a minimal install of the X environment without a "desktop", then it's harder).
The fact that you have a gui desktop installed doesn't impact your server's load unless you actually run it. but it can be run for occasional local access with a gui to 127.0.0.1. or even accessed by vnc or tunnelled through ssh, but that's all linux geek stuff
Well, if I have installed an X desktop, then I have no idea how I did it or why it's not working now (specifically why xinit is not working). What's frustrating is that no two people seem to agree on a solution.dicko said:I maintain mine was a valid, non confrontational response.
and yes. you have installed, in effect, an X desktop,:

My further post was intended to be helpful and instructional, to you or any others that might stumble here, "please accept/reject . . . . as ever"
So if you don't want to install X, forget about Skype.you would be violating the skype license if you incorporate this into a program that uses the skype API to do something useful.
This seems to be the bare minimum resources you have to waste.Skype runs quite well on 1x3 pixel virtual desktop (TightVNC server version 1.2.9) without window manager.
