Asked a question 2 years ago

Just downloaded easy8 with Centos 8, after successful installation, no graphical login page, only text console even I selected graphical for the head node. The X server just terminated itself. If I do 'startx' from a terminal, it gave error: " dbus-update-activation-environment: error: unable to connect to D-Bus: /usr/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally without any error message". Any ideas?

Where am I?

Dear hhmibright

This is a known issue. You may resolve it by run running the following commands on the headnode.

# yum groupinstall GNOME
# sed -i '/daemon/a InitialSetupEnable=false' /etc/gdm/custom.conf

Once complete, the startx command should start the GUI correctly.
