Description SI Reasoning 2006-11-13 11:49:35 UTC
After upgrading to net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.5.0-r1, when I logoff from an nxsession (specifically from kde 3.5, but I don't think that is the issue) the logoff proceeds properly, but the nxsession is never cleared and when I connect the next time, it first tries to start the closed session before giving an error message. The next time I connect it would then start a fresh session.

After logging off, I still notice that there is a sessionid in /var/lib/nxserver/db/running. If I run nxserver --cleanup then I will receive the following error message on the client; "The connection with the remote server was shut down. Please check the state of your network connection."

Hi SI,

I've noticed the same problem with GNOME.  I don't yet know what's causing it, but it's annoying as hell.

I won't be stabilising nxserver-freenx until this has been solved.

Best regards,

Hi ebfe,

I don't know who you are, but please don't tell other Gentoo users how they should or should not be using our Bugzilla system.

Best regards,

I can get it to exit cleanly when I change the following line in /etc/nxserver/node.conf:


I am using a 1.5 client
Comment 5 Bruno Redondi 2006-11-21 03:19:25 UTC
Looking at nxnode the variable ENABLE_2_0_0_BACKEND must be set to 1 only if nxagent is version >= 2.0; So, since net-misc/nx installs nxagent version 1.5, that variable has to be forced = 0.
To enable client connections with client version >= 2.0 and backend version = 1.5, nxnode has to be modified to handle correctly the "backingstore" parameter.

Changing bug state.

Thanks, nxserver-freenx-0.5-r2 in CVS

Now, you can also use the recently added nxserver-freenx-0.6
