why is client.id_dsa.key missing from there? I don't think ebuild deletes it. The keys go in pair, and hence if client.id_dsa.key is present in that directory, its easier to test if that is the key the client has installed. Easiest way for you is to use nxkeygen to recreate the key pair and transfer client.id_dsa.key to the client (leave it in that directory as well for future reference), import it in the profile on client side and retry the connection.


I don't think client.id_dsa.key and server.id_dsa.key are needed, as long as the public key is added to the /usr/NX/home/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file and the private key is included in the nxclient, it should work.

So what's the current status? If I install a 32bit chroot and set makeopts to -j1, any chance I can have a working NX 2.0 installation by the end of the day?

I've upgraded to freenx 0.6.0_alpha (latest svn), and of course re-configured things, but I'm unable to establish a session with both Linux and Windows clients version 2.0.

This is what I get, after it tries to negotiate with the server:

Code:

NXPROXY - Version 2.0.0

Copyright (C) 2001, 2006 NoMachine.
See http://www.nomachine.com/ for more information.

Info: Proxy running in client mode with pid '16475'.
Session: Starting session at 'Thu Aug 24 15:31:04 2006'.
Info: Connecting to remote host '*removed_wan_ip*:5000'.
Info: Aborting the procedure due to signal '15'.
Session: Session terminated at 'Thu Aug 24 15:31:39 2006'.


While I'm typing this, and try to re-produce the problem with SSL enabled, it somehow succeeds! Don't understand why, since I tried it many times with SSL enabled... But well, it still doesn't work without SSL (and should, right? I got it working before with 0.5.0) so there still should be a solution for this. From the server debug log set at 7, I get this:

Code:

startsession  --link="wan" --backingstore="1" --nodelay="1" --cache="16M" --images="64M" --media="0" --session="telecity" --type="unix-kde" --geometry="1280x1024+160+60" --kbtype="pc102/us" --screeninfo="1280x1024x24+render"

&link=wan&backingstore=1&nodelay=1&cache=16M&images=64M&media=0&session=telecity&type=unix-kde&geometry=1280x1024+160+60&kbtype=pc102/us

NX> 105


As far as I can tell, it starts the session and immediately ends it. Since it seems to work with SSL enabled, I don't think it has anything to do with libraries?

NX worked fine for a while with me, but one way or the other it stopped working. If I try to run nxagent now it returns:
Code:
nxagent: symbol lookup error: /usr/NX/lib/libXcompext.so.1: undefined symbol: _NXEnableCleanGet


I already tried to svn the latest build, but that doesn't help. Did I miss something?
The problem is solved. Apparently my KDE was broken.

By the way. Would it be a good idea to collect all the problems and solutions in the startpost? I must say it's very hard to find solutions that are already given. If I have time I will try to collect a few.

freenx 0.6 + nx 2.0.0 works fine here but only with prebuilt. it fails to compile the nx-x11 equivalent from nxnode because of some header mess still.

I'm not running on a Gentoo system per-se, but an FC3 based system (for the server part of things) and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.. I've built my own freenx from the sources and am using the freenx-0.5.0 scripts to run things. I'm able to login the nx user and then it logs in myself under my account just fine (verified with ps -ef).. It claims its starting xterm (I'm starting out easy), but it times out after >30 seconds.. Now, during this time, I can see xterm running and I've even set my own display (in another window) to :1000 to try to open a new xterm (using my ReflectionX Xwindows server on my XP box) and using truss I've found that xterm starts but hangs (waiting on a read operation). I'm hoping this is not due to our corporate firewall I'm forced to use at work. I'm able to get a nice ssh connection going to my home server just fine using SecureCRT (on WinXP of course) -- is that good enough to get freenx going too without other firewall holes needed? Using plain old X-forwarding, I can open a regular Xterm from my home machine to my ReflectionX server just fine so I know my X is working OK..

I'm obviously using the windows client from NoMachine and have all of the odd tweaks in place such as the 1.5 backwards feature (even though I'm using a 2.x client downloaded yesterday). Any ideas?

Ok.. Interestingly enough, I've been able to get it to work with my OS-X client, but needed to uncheck both the zlib compression and the SSL encryption options which I was under the impression should be enabled... I'll try it tomorrow morning at work and see if it magically starts working over there. Strange.. So far so good though..

Ok.. I give up.. I can't get it to work using regular old encrypted traffic at work, but can get it to work fine at home (where there are no firewall issues).. I'm not horribly interested in punching a bunch of holes in my firewall for the 5xxx port range so I'll stick to my traditional ssh port forwarding I'm currently using to run X11 via my SecureCRT shell on Windows.. If anyone has other things to suggest, I'm all ears.. I'd love to get this working, but it just seems like something is broken somewhere for regular old encrypted traffic.

I've been working on getting NX setup on my gentoo box for quite some time now. I HAVE to use the 2.x clients from !M due to the fact that I also run cygwin and the windows machine and previous versions of the client do not play nice with cygwin.

The wiki page (http://gentoo-wiki.com/Talk:HOWTO_FreeNX_Server) is so convoluted with different opinions as to how to set things up, that it is not possible to really follow it.

Are there any news on getting the !M nxserver 2.0 binaries into portage? Their free package looks promising, but when trying to install from the .tar it tells me that it can't tell what distro I'm using !!! LOL.

If we could update the howto and the wiki that would be great! If these pages can contain centralized documentation for how to achieve compatibility with the 2.x !M clients that will also be marvelous.

Daniel.

NX 2.1.0 is out today. When are we going to see some new ebuilds for 2.1.0 in svn? I am already waiting, StifflerStealth... :)

Not really need for an overlay if you want to try it. Just download the compressed tars of nxclient, nxnode and nxserver and follow the installation instructions. As distribution to specify for the install scripts debian worked for me, since the only thing that wasn't installed were the init scripts and if you use Nx through ssh that doesn't matter. All other Nx stuff goes to /usr/NX I think (if someone can please confirm).
Unfortunately for me suspend new a NX session that was X-forwarded still doesn't work. :cry:

Hi guys :)

i finaly solved my keyboard-mapping problem issuing "ln -snf ../../share/X11/xkb /usr/lib/X11/xkb" .. so with that success :D i am looking for other coastlines, such as freenx 0.6.0-alpha ;) .. i used the ebuild in the NX-overlay but, of course, failed.
I dont want to spam this thread so I'd like to know where the best place is to discuss those even more bleeding edge issues with freenx. Any recommendations?

have a nice week :)
greets

Mana

Hi Mana,

I'm following this thread for quite some time now and I think this is the one if you want to discuss the "bleeding edge issues".
Unfortunately the last weeks, little postings have been done. I think that's mainly because StifflerStealth doesn't seem to have
time to work on the project and the rest of the posters don't have enough knowledge to continue the project. (at least I haven't)
So if you know how to continue, I and a lot of other guys here with me would probably be very greatfull.

Hehe ;) thank you QkEterror for your reply. I'd too would like to see
some movement in the whole freenx issues as this projekt is very important
and _very_ usefull. If you look at the pace at which nomachine releases
new versions i get the feeling that we are allways three steps behind
and probably allways will if. But this is a thing that, i guess, should be
discussed on the freenx mailinglist.

To state that clear *g* I am at no means a gentoo developer, freenx-insider
or anything close to that :D .. i am an enthusiast and i like working
bleeding edge software *g*. If i can help to make those things work with
whatever contribution i am willing to do it. But i cannot lead the
development of ebuilds for gentoo ;)

have a nice weekend guys
Mana

Good time of day everyone,


I just upgraded the xorg to v.7 branch on my gentoo box, now my nxserver sessions wont work. I get a very similar output to the one already posted on this thread, however the solution with symlinking the fonts directory did not work for me. Here is the snapshot of the 'details' from the nx client:

freenx. My story:

For the last two weeks I've been really trying to get this working. Did the portage supported ebuild, tried the tar from the nomachine site, tried other ebuilds around the net... Nothing worked (too many dependicies, missing *.so files, config files in weird places).

I actually gave up the idea of a gentoo vm (vmware-server) of freenx and made a fedora core vm just to see if it even works.
Fedora works, but it was butt slow, as fedora is compiled for p4's and i have a p3... anyway.

So seeing that it was indeed possible, I redoubled my efforts and finally today got it working. *joy*

I followed the instructions back on page 24 and made an overlay that included ALL of the files in http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/nx/testing/net-misc/
I then ran a ebuild %pkg% manifest on all of the ebuilds from that website.

I have already merged the non~ kde, so i did a
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge nxserver-freenx <- .6 alpha version (to get the latest version, as the .5 version didn't work)
*note*: I did have to disable distcc and reduce (parallel compiles) -j to 1 (from 5) otherwise it threw errors.

then proceded to have to make a symlink to the nxloadcfg in /usr/bin from /usr/NX/bin after that nxserver works perfectly
nxserver --adduser and nxserver --passwd and the start and restart all work.

And best of all i can connect and use my virtual kde computer.

And I don't want to start anything but the speedup from the fedora vm to gentoo was about 4x. moving windows, launching apps, all much faster, thank you for this thread!

Currently using xorg-7.0-r1, kde 3.52 and freenx-0.6.0_alpha20060711

Oookay teva, freenx-alpha, this is interesting :) .. are you using a 2.0 / 2.1 nomachine-clients? Windows and Linux?

I did not succeed with freenx 0.6 alpha so i still get some yellow artifacts on fonts, expecialy "i" and "l" *lol* .. but only with 2.0 clients . I Hoped to solve that issue with an upgrade .. somehwat strange because i never read about it ..

I will propably give 0.6 alpha another try on a very clean gentoo system without the fucked up NATed vservers ...

ehm and imanassypov, i think your error-log is not sufficent .. you should increase verbosity or look elsewhere on your system for more information ...

greets
Mana

Gentlemen,


I got my issue resolved. Follow http://gentoo-wiki.com/Talk:HOWTO_FreeNX_Server, the bottom section explains nx installation for Xorg 7.0.

-it works

Hi everyone,

After spending two days reading everything I could google, this forums, wikis, ubunto forums, other forums
and bug reports (old and news), even after I read this hole thread of posts, I can't seem to get this
nx-server up and running, simply can't find the solution for my problem... :(

I'm working from an SSH connection on my office box (where i want my nxserver) from my laptop (both gentoo)!

nxagent works, nxssh works... using the default nomachine DSA key... working with SVN nxserver-freenx 0.6 alpha and nxclient 2.0.

Seting up gives me the following:

Code:
nxagent works, nxssh works...
Setting up /usr/NX/etc ...done
Generating public/private dsa key pair.
Your identification has been saved in /usr/NX/etc/users.id_dsa.
Your public key has been saved in /usr/NX/etc/users.id_dsa.pub.

Setting up /usr/NX/var/db ...done
Setting up /var/log/nxserver.log ...done
Setting up special user "nx" ...Creating mailbox: File exists
done
Setting up known_hosts and authorized_keys2 ...done
Setting up permissions ...done

----> Testing your nxserver configuration ...

  Warnings occured during config check.
  To enable these features please correct the configuration file.

<---- done

----> Testing your nxserver connection ...
Permission denied (publickey,password,hostbased).
Fatal error: Could not connect to NX Server.

Please check your ssh setup:

The following are _examples_ of what you might need to check.

        - Make sure "nx" is one of the AllowUsers in sshd_config.
    (or that the line is outcommented/not there)
        - Make sure your sshd allows public key authentication.
        - Make sure your sshd is really running on port 22.
        - Make sure your sshd_config AuthorizedKeysFile in sshd_config is set to authorized_keys2.
    (this should be a filename not a pathname+filename)


I don't have KDE, I have enlightment DR17 on office and XFCE on my laptop (don't know if relevant)!
When I try to connect from my laptop with nxclient 2.0 (using default key):

Code:
NX> 203 NXSSH running with pid: 9571
NX> 285 Enabling check on switch command
NX> 285 Enabling skip of SSH config files
NX> 285 Setting the preferred NX options
NX> 200 Connected to address: <<some ip>> on port: 22
NX> 202 Authenticating user: nx
NX> 208 Using auth method: publickey
NX> 204 Authentication failed.


Can anyone help me?

I'm having a display problem which is difficult to describe. Here is a screenshot showing fluxbox, xterms, and
gnome-terminals side-by-side for comparison:

http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/5812/shot200610271711ol0.png

The fluxbox menu fonts are black instead of white, and many other things like window decorations are also black
instead of bluish-gray. xterm starts with a white background which becomes black as I type (or if I run `clear`)
and is not displaying the prompt colors correctly. gnome-terminal looks fine except for the black window decorations
and illegible title bar.

The problem is the same when I connect from other machines.

eddmendonca are you sure you need to set a new key? It should be enough to use the keys delivered, as it is the nomachine key and though available on the client .. you might want to check that :)

Or just try the nxserver-freenx-0.5.0.20060311-r1 from portage.

Freenx is really, really sweet. However, its such a pain to setup and get working in its current state!
