I have installed SUSE 11 SP1 automatically by response file, so there is
no x window.

But now, what should I do to install x winodw?

Which packages are necessary for x winodws?

Thanks~

Easiest way would be: yast->software->software management, in the
filter choose patterns and mark X window system to install.

Thanks a lot, but X window still depends on other packages.

Manually install them?

If you mark the x windows "pattern" for installation then all other
needed packages should automatically get installed.
