    As a general rule, I do not allow X servers on any server. Even if I application that I launch from a server, it should run on my display
    not on the real server. I have had several consultants not like my re
    when they wanted to install and run some management tool on the produ server.

    Unfortunately commercial unix products, such as IBM's WebSphere
    absoluately require it. Ok not *absolutely*, to make a "headless"
    install of IBM WebSphere requires "recording" an installation log
    thingie, thats xml, that you hand modify and run through some tool on
    the headless server after much muckery ... a whole lot of muckery, took
    me about 4 days to finish preparing, actually.

    Whereas if the target linux machine just had X, I could have just run
    the damn (eclipse & java-based) installer, instead.

    You do not need X to install IBM Websphere. You need some xlibs installed,
    but not the actual X Server. You can just redirect X to your local console,
    or use the answers.txt method for the silent install.

    I've done many a Websphere install on AIX, no X servers allowed on those machines. If you install the xclock or xterm package on the machine, it'll
    get the required packages; of which the X server isn't one of them.
