XFCE installation on the RHEL 6.0

Hello,

Unfortunately, you have not created a ready-made binary packets for RHEL 6.0  operating system.
RedHat company also does not create them.
It is inexplicable why there is such a cool attitude of XFCE and RHEL.
Scientific Linux 6.0 too.

And how can I install XFCE on RHEL 6.0 ?
Do not offer to compile the reference texts, because I do not have any desire to recourse to this barbaric method.

Re: XFCE installation on the RHEL 6.0

Abdula, the Xfce team is not responsible for providing binary packages, it is the responsibility of the distros (that is the very definition of a distribution). You should either post your request to the developers of your distro, or move to a distro that has Xfce packages. Here is a list of distros with Xfce: http://www.xfce.org/download/distros

Re: XFCE installation on the RHEL 6.0

Please have a look at the EPEL repositories: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL. As far as I know Xfce is provided there.

Update:
for CentOS 5 there is also an extras repository which may works with RHEL as well: http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

REHL, Fedora and CentOS use the same package manager : RPM.
So you can get it on other distros repositories.

Re: XFCE installation on the RHEL 6.0

The EPEL repo provide xfdesktop.rpm.
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/e … group.html
Activate the EPEL repo and you don't need to rebuild the fedora package.
In general on koji (fedora bulid system) you find rpm's and src.rpm's from fedora for xfce. Use the one from fc15, they are based on xfce 4.8.
