    Red Hat subscription 

    The product requires some additional libraries to be present on the system (see list below).

    The preferred method to add any missing libraries is to use the yum command to fetch the necessary library packages from the RHN (Red Hat Network) repository via the Internet.  To use this method, a Red Hat subscription is needed. Register the system by clicking System >Administration > Red Hat Subscription Manager in the menu on the server itself.  After registering the system, you can use yum install to download and install the required libraries from the RHN.

    X Windows

    If you are installing the Presentation Server using the graphical user interface, you must install X Windows.

    On the Red Hat Enterprise Linux terminal, type yum grouplist and check that X Window System is listed.  If not, then run yum groupinstall 'X Window System' to install the necessary packages.   

    Required libraries

    Ensure that the following libraries are present to install the Presentation Server.  To install the libraries, use the following commands.
