Hi there,

came to ugrade from 8.1.4 to 8.1.9 on a small Xen instance (CentOS6)
that I use for testing.

# rpm -qa grid\*
# rpm -qa xterm\*


# yum -C localupdate \
 /mnt/x86_64/6/facility-local-misc/packages/gridengine-8.1.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm \

I thought that all GUI dependencies had been removed from the base,
master and execd
RPM sub-packages, some time ago ?
