Care to extrapolate on your comment? You'll need X just to install
Oracle on your server. Typically I install X (and nothing else, like;
WM, desktop, gtk, qt, fonts, etc.) and links on my servers. This is
because it's sometimes useful to do your googling (etc.) for why your
server isn't working right at the server and for
administering/installing web apps. text mode browsers just suck.
