Description Stefan de Konink 2005-01-02 10:20:25 UTC
Using the NX utilities fail to work by the missing symbol. This happens due to a wrong libpath in nx-x11, which points to /usr/X11R6/lib instead of the build directory of the NXlibs. (By mind). I remember there was a bugzilla entry too, but it doesn't seems to be fixed before nxserver-freenx was updated.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge nxserver-freenx
2. try to use the nx utilities localhost
3. look at the ~/.nx for session errors

Actual Results:  
NX fails to work.

Expected Results:  
A NX virtual denktop.

Same here, this problem blocks the use of freenx

node.conf freenx configuration file

Freenx configure file to setup nx to specify library locations etc.
Comment 3 STefan 2005-02-25 13:16:43 UTC
Ah forgot to add, this file should be copied to /usr/NX/etc 
The ebuild should be updated to copy this file at install, I just set the default locations for gentoo dirs, so this is a standard config for all gentoo boxes.

Comment 4 Jon Severinsson 2005-03-20 08:49:15 UTC
STefan, your node.conf file is for freenX 0.3.x, and will not be parsed by freeNX 0.2.8 that is in portage (I have subbmitted an updated 0.3.0 ebuild including a default node.conf as bug #84918).
Considering the error I think that most likely you have managed to install freeNX without applying gentoo-nomachine.diff that changes the default path of NX binaries and libraries to /usr/NX/{bin|lib} instead of /usr/{bin|lib}, the default installtion path on most distros but Gentoo.
If you install freeNX through portage the ebuild should apply gentoo-nomachine.diff automatically, if not you have to apply it manually ("patch -i gentoo-nomachine.diff")

I have installed 0.2.4, 0.2.7, 0.2.8 and 0.3.0 through portage and having no problems with this, though when installing a snappshot or CVS manually for development purposes I have to apply gentoo-nomachine.diff manually as well.

Sorry, I meant bug #84299 in the post above.
Comment 6 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-23 12:22:52 UTC

Could you test the latest nxserver-freenx (which I've just added to the tree)?
