As stated above, I am working with nxserver-freenx-0.4.0, which is in portage. How else does your version differ from FreeNX Server v. 0.4.4, and how would I upgrade to that version?

Thanks...
The 0.4.4 version is in the overlay I made on bugs.gentoo.org. Search for FreeNX and it should come up. :) You can delete all the NX Componets out of there because NX 1.5.0 is in portage now. it's nxserver-freenx-0.4.4.ebuild, I believe. There are two patches with it though.

Indeed, and I have done my best trying to get it installed. As things stand right now, after digesting the ebuild and re-emerging nxserver-freenx, I am able to connect to the server, as I previously could... :)

In addition, I have added +commercial, as suggested elsewhere in this thread:
Code:
# emerge -pv nxserver-freenx

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.4.4  +commercial 0 kB [1]

Total size of downloads: 0 kB
Portage overlays:
 [1] /usr/local/portage


On the linux side, using nxclient 1.4.0-r5, I connect & suspend/resume without problem. What advantage would there be to the nxclient-1.5.0 upgrade?

With the windows client connecting to my nxserver, there is improved function, but, still, a failure to suspend/resume. I now get a detailed message:

I'm not sure what this implies or what next to try... but, I'm very open to suggestions! :?

Edit: Problem corrected by selecting Disable ZLIB stream compression in the WinXP NOMACHINE Configure section. :D

Now, it appears, both clients are communicating well with the NXserver!

Thanks! :)

Hey, I have a problem with the nxclient I downloaded from the nomachine website (I tried compiling the freenx client myself, but it stopped with an error). Anyways, it connects fine and even seems to authenticate fine, but when it gets to the "negotiating link parameters" phase, it goes for a minute or two and then fails without giving me a real error message. I have tried using the nxserver from the website (personal evaluation version) and using freenx and neither of them work. Any ideas?

In fact, the client doesn't work with the testdrive server either.

Got nxserver-freenx working on my home server. I can access it from anywhere fine. Brings up a kde desktop and everything. Problem is many of the apps I start do not show up on my virtual display. They show up on the root desktop display:0.0 at home. I noticed this when I started a session from work and tried to gvim a system file. Nothing happened. No error messages or anything. I tried this several times. When I went home, I had a half dozen gvim windows piled on my desktop.

Anybody hit me with a clue stick on what I've done wrong in the setup, or is this just an nx bug?

Suspend/Resume works with version 0.4.4 of FreenNX on Windows. So you need to use that version if you want that feature. It is not supported below that version. :)


I don't have FreeNX installed on the Windows PC... I just have nxclient-1.5.0-131 on the Windows system, and on my gentoo box I have nxserver-freenx-0.4.0 installed.


Quick hack to install 0.4.4:
Code:
cd /usr/portage/net-misc/nxserver-freenx/
cp nxserver-freenx-0.4.0.ebuild nxserver-freenx-0.4.4.ebuild
vi nxserver-freenx-0.4.4.ebuild (change KEYWORDS to x86)
ebuild nxserver-freenx-0.4.4.ebuild digest
emerge -pv nxserver-freenx
emerge -v nxserver-freenx

Hi,

I'm actually trying to install FreeNX 0.5.0 (i need the load balancing part of the 0.5.0).
I can't find any working ebuild for NX 1.5.0 (i have one for FreeNX).
Anyone know where can i have one ?
I test the version from bugzilla (both) and they both don't work (TEXTREL pb on 2 lib from nxcomp et nxcompext).

Thanks

I finally updated the overlay on at this bug address:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101691
It has all the latest versions and correct URLs. Also, I marked all ebuilds as unstable, ie ~x86. Before I only had a few marked unstable. I also cleaned up the ebuilds a bit. I hope this works for you.

Also, where do you see FreeNX v0.5.0? I can only find v0.4.4.

Do you have a the directory /usr/X11R6/ ? It is suppose to be a symlink to /usr, so see if you have that.

EDIT: Oh, I looked at the FreeNX code on the svn server and it looks like version 0.5.0 is older than version 0.4.5. So, be careful if you use that. I will need to write an ebuild for version 0.4.5 because it looks to be stable and has TONS of improvements over 0.4.4. :D Hopefully a lot of issues will be fixed with that. So, DL the files from the trunk to get the lastest if you want to use the 0.5.0 series. It has the newer nxsetup file and will work better. :) The files marked with the 0.5.0 tag are really old.

I have a strange problem. FreeNX 0.4.4 runs fine with me at this moment, but there is one problem. If I suspent and resume a session, two windows are opened (one has (GPL Edition) after is't name. One works fine, but the other one doesn't accept any input. Does anyone have the same problem or knows how to fix it? It's not that it's impossible to work with, it's just not perfect :) I'm Running the client (1.5.0-138 on an XP system.

I use the new modular xorg and I use to have keyboard problems as well until I make a symlink.
This symlink:
Code:
# ln -s /usr/share/X11/XKeysymDB /usr/lib/X11/XKeysymDB


Does this help?

I put up ebuilds for FreeNX versions 0.4.5 and 0.5.0 in that bug report here:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101691

I am running 0.4.5 right now. :) It works fine. Enjoy.

Tried out the new .45 ebuild and still having the adduser problem. Thought the adduser patch's purpose was to fix this problem. Am i missing something?

Edit the ebuild. Replace /bin/false with -1, and see if that works. Let me know if it does. :) But, can you check the user properties to see if /bin/false was added for the shell default?

THanks.

Replacing "/bin/false" with -1 (that's a one) did solve the /bin/false error above. And I verified that /bin/false was added as the user's shell.

Emerge finished successfully. Ran into a problem starting nxclient...missing libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 . Found the solutions elsewhere...emerging lib-compat. shouldn't lib-compat be a dep in the client ebuild?

Thanks Stiffler!

EDIT: Well, the "-1" replacement seemed to work at home, but the work system (~x86) didn't react the same way :
Code:
 * Adding user 'nx' to your system ...
 * - Userid: 103
 * - Shell: /usr/sbin/nologin
 * - Home: /usr/NX/home/nx
 * - Groups: (none)
 * - Creating /usr/NX/home/nx in /

[/quote] hmm. Maybe it has something to do with portage itself or sandboxing or something. Hmm. Maybe I can ask about this on IRC. The devs should have an answer. :D What portage version do you run?

At work, system running ~x86. Portage should be 2.1 pre3-r1 I believe. System updates are current.

When i try nxcomp, it s compile fine (i have to edit Makefile.in in nxcomp tarballs because it's missing -fPIC and then ld say an error about textrel) but nothing is install.
No error at all but libXcomp aren t copy in /usr/NX/lib/
I use the last ebuild available on bugs.gentoo.org.
I try to modify the ebuild and adding cp -rf libXcomp.so* but then i have an error about access violation.

Anyone have an idea why it s no copying ?

I have just try nxproxy, and i have the same problem, all work fine (except many warning errors but i think it's not a problem) but nothing is install (on /usr/NX/bin for nxproxy).

With all this work going on with the new ebuild in bugs.gentoo.org, why isn't it merged into a MASKED version in the regular ebuild world? What am I missing? :?

EDIT: I used the ebuild from bugs and it's working great, but I'm still wondering. Is it because the source is pulled direct from CVS?
