Fixes path for nxserver-freenx

This patches nxserver to have the correct path for nxnode-login.

Sorry - there's only the one of me, and other packages have had to take priority for the last month or so.  I'll bump this package as soon as I have some time.

Best regards,
Comment 9 Ed Catmur 2004-12-15 14:36:03 UTC
Christian, in future please attach ebuilds as text/plain. Thanks for the work, though.
Comment 10 Malte S. Stretz 2004-12-22 09:11:20 UTC
meta-fied this bug :)
Comment 11 Neil Wilson 2004-12-30 13:55:41 UTC
The NX Client ebuild is broken. Nomachine have moved their binaries around and changed the paths.

P.S Why is the Server depending on the binary client (or any client for that matter) anyway? It doesn't need the client to run.
Comment 12 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-30 16:11:23 UTC
The commercial NX Server *does* need the NX Client, unless something has changed very recently.

Best regards,
Comment 13 Neil Wilson 2005-01-01 06:29:13 UTC
Perhaps the commercial one does depend on the nx-client binaries, but nxserver-freenx shouldn't because otherwise it prevents you from building a non-binary/fully open source installation with this technology. Gentoo is supposed to be about choices after all and NX is allegedly GPL at its core.

Comment 14 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-01 07:27:14 UTC

Gentoo is all about choice.  But equally it's about quality - and that means doing our best to ensure that the packages that go into Portage have the right deps.

The architecture of the nxserver relies on nxclient to display key dialog boxes.  It's the nxclient installed on the same machine as the nxserver which displays these dialog boxes - not the nxclient on the machine that you are connecting from.

I'll have a look at freenx 0.2.7, and see if it provides a drop-in replacement for nxclient.  If it does, and if it works, then we can use that.  If not, then the dep on the commercial nxclient will have to remain.

Best regards,
Comment 15 Neil Wilson 2005-01-01 13:23:00 UTC
That explains the 'nxclient' shell script in the FreeNX distribution. It's just enough to do the dialog servicing required by the server.

The nxclient shell script uses the binary nxclient, Xdialog and xmessage in order of preference to display dialogs.

Hopefully at some point it will allow the use of the kNX client as well.

I've committed version bumps for nx-x11 et al to Portage, based on Christian's attachments.  They should appear on your local rsync mirror in about an hour.  Please test, and let me know how you get on.

Best regards,
