xorg-x11-server-utils-7.7-2.el6.x86_64 : X.Org X11 X server utilities    ---------------------就是缺少这个包xorg-x11-server-utils-7.7-2.el6.x86_64
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/xhost

Install xorg-x11-server-utils-7.7-2.el6.x86_64

yum -y install xorg-x11-server-utils-7.7-2.el6.x86_64
