Description Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2008-12-04 13:53:57 UTC
* Upstream closed web site and source downloads
* No updates since first release 2 years ago
* Still based on old NX 1.5 code, missing features and being mostly incompatible with current NX servers/clients
* Client does not compile with gcc4.3 or --as-needed (bug #248138). GPL alternative exists: net-misc/qtnx
* Server includes old, unpatched xorg sources, probably vulnerable to GLSA 200710-09 and 200804-05. GPL alternative exists: net-misc/nxserver-freenx

Both of them will be moved to the NX overlay in 30 days
