installed kde using the cmd:

yum install @kde

now I want to switch to kde . I tried :

$xinit .xinitrc.kde -- :1

I got :

    xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  no server "X" in PATH

Use the -- option, or make sure that /usr/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display.  Possible server names include:

    Xorg        Common X server for most displays
    Xvfb        Virtual frame buffer
    Xfake       kdrive-based virtual frame buffer
    Xnest       X server nested in a window on another X server
    Xephyr      kdrive-based nested X server

Any help?

Have you tried yum install @xorg ? Not that I know which distro you're using, or what their package group names might be, or why kde doesn't depend on X it in their case ... – tink Mar 12 '13 at 19:04
