Description Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 13:51:35 UTC
Time to stabilize the NX 3.2 branch packages, and new (gpl) client qtnx!

Candidate packages are:
* net-misc/nxclient-3.2.0
* net-misc/nxnode-3.2.0
* net-misc/nxserver-freeedition-3.2.0
* net-misc/nx-3.2.0 (finally a stable candidate for amd64)
* net-misc/nxserver-freenx-0.7.2-r2 (same)
* net-misc/nxcl-0.9
* net-misc/qtnx-0.9
Comment 1 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-25 06:09:34 UTC
Hm, I have some problems with qtnx on x86. After I configure connection and attempt to start it I receive an error in console. Second attempt just hangs on "Process started" message:

peter@camobap ~ $ qtnx
Process started
stdout> notQProcess error: 0 crashed. errno:2
Process exited
Process started
Process started

BTW, may be related: README of qtnx file I found that it has "nxssh from NoMachine" as prerequisites, but I don't have such executable on my system. I have nx built with net-misc/nx-3.2.0  USE="-rdesktop -vnc". I'll try to rebuilt with vnc and rdesktop enabled to see if this fixes the problem...
Comment 2 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2008-05-26 08:22:12 UTC
Its is related indeed, in fact nxssh is not provided by net-misc/nx, but net-misc/nxclient. I added it as RDEPEND in nxcl (removing nxclient from my system produces the same error), thanks!

x86 stable
Comment 4 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-04 18:37:23 UTC
qtnx misses dependency on qt that why the error:

Bernard whenever you'll be fixing this, please, take a note that there are two versions of qt: old, but the only stable - 4.3.x and splitted version - 4.4.0 (still hardmasked but about to became unmasked).
Comment 5 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-04 20:18:41 UTC
Bernard and to simplify you testing, x11-libs/qt-4.3.3 built without any USE flags enabled allows to build and run qtnx. I haven't tested with split qt.
Comment 6 Bernard Cafarelli gentoo-dev 2008-06-04 22:19:26 UTC
Thanks Peter! Somehow I thought qt4 eclass set a minimum DEPEND by default...

Update DEPEND based on bug #217528 hints, with qt-core and qt-gui for split qt
Comment 7 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-05 15:26:11 UTC
amd64 stable. Fixed.
