Description Martin Honermeyer 2004-08-26 19:33:38 UTC
These are the base open-source components for the FreeNX server, made by NoMachine ( and modified by Fabian Franz and Peter Rockai from the Kalyxo project (

nxserver-free-1.4.0 depends on this! (

Warning: This is more or less a hack, at the moment! I took the sources off the Debian apt repository and got everything patch and compiled nicely in one ebuild. There are seven packages, all in one tarball, which is from the Kalyxo website.

This works for me, but it's ugly because I have no experience with writing ebuilds which contain multiple archives. Maybe the components can be disassembled into different packages again. It is major that those versions belong together though! Changing one component may affect operation of the system.

Given that the underlying FreeNX project will vastly change in the next months, I think this is okay for the moment, for those who want to use this!

I'm planning to add FreeNX in so that it can sit alongside the commercial release of NX 1.4.0.  This means that I won't be using Debian's nxserver-free-base work.

Bug #61505 is tracking my progress on FreeNX.

Best regards,
