# yum -y install mesa-dri-drivers xorg-x11-drv-evdev xorg-x11-drv-synaptics xorg-x11-drv-nouveau gnome-shell gnome-js-common gnome-panel network-manager-applet
I did a minimal install of CentOS 6.3 and now want to add a GUI. I tried using yum to install a GUI, but it says it can't resolve mirror.centos.org. I tried to install networking packages but I get directory not found for /etc.
