What is your OS?  Do you have X11 installed?

Did you install all Slurm prerequisites?  For CentOS 7 it is:

yum install rpm-build gcc openssl openssl-devel libssh2-devel pam-devel 
numactl numactl-devel hwloc hwloc-devel lua lua-devel readline-devel 
rrdtool-devel ncurses-devel gtk2-devel libssh2-devel libibmad libibumad 
perl-Switch perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker


I hope this helps.
