    Sure would love this for amd64. I know nothing about building packages. Would this be a good place to start?

    Unfortunately, FreeNX has been known not to compile under AMD64. I do not have the time to invest in getting that to work -- it's been ongoing in Gentoo, unsure what the current resolution is.

    freenx server doesn't work on hoary for me. I tried setting it up with the nomachine key, and it still refuses to allow me to login.

    Re: Hoary Extra: NX Client

    Ok, a little further hacking and I got it working. Seems that it didn't properly set up the /home/.nx directory or the nomachine key by default. I created the directory, ran nxsetup as root and then it started up. To get my user able to log in, I had to manually set the password with nxserver though.

    As I recall, I did not have these issues with the kalyxo.org freenx builds.

    Re: Hoary Extra: NX Client

    I need to investigate on these backports, including the FreeNX server for Hoary.

    It seems like some R-Deps were updated by Canonical since the package was compiled.

    Re: Hoary Extra: NX Client

    I installed the nxserver this mornong (05/04/2005), it installed fine, but gave me a message about "authentication" or something.

    After using it for a whille , it seems that the warty version is more stable then the hoary version
    *k3b and the servers just cuts the connection.
    *same with mplayer (not even opening a movie, just changing the preferences).

    Re: Hoary Extra: NX Client

    Could someone give me instructions on the right way to install freenx? (server) I noticed another thread, but it seemed geared toward warty and i really dont want to screw up my distro.

    Any help for setting this up on hoary 5.04 would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    BT

    Re: Hoary Extra: NX Client

    As I said a few posts up, recompiling Hoary NX is on my todo list... Many things have changed in Hoary since I initially packaged this.

    Kalyxo's site (which contains NX Debian sources) is pretty quirky recently, so it may be a while before I can get this packaged (read: next week )

    I've assigned a task to rebuild NX. However, it'll be a while (due to Kalyxo being down) before it can be actually built.
