 += Install X on AIX =
 +When you have an already installed AIX system it might happen you'll need to install X on the system. Oracle dba's will love you for it, since it will make it easier for them to install Oracle for example. This is an how to install X on AIX, assuming you have a [[aixnim]] server. If you don't have one you'll need to install the filesets from a different medium.
  
 += Install Required Filesets =
 +The basic required fileset for X on AIX is X11.base.rte. You can check for the fileset with this command:
 +<code bash>
 +lslpp -L | grep X11.base.rte
 +</​code>​
 +If the command returns nothing, the fileset is not installed. Follow these steps to install the package:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +root@system:/​home/​root>​nimclient -o cust -a lpp_source=lpp_5300_06_07 -a filesets=X11.base.rte
