Description Jon Severinsson 2005-07-10 12:36:57 UTC
There is now a new 0.4.1 version of FreeNX. It is featuring lots of bugfixes, one small security enhancement and support for both the nx 1.4 and 1.5 backends.
The current 0.4.0 ebuild can be used, but as the 1.5 backend now is supported, dependencies should be updated to be 100% correct (else the ebuild will only work with 1.4 backends, which is all that is in portage atm).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -av nxserver-freenx
Actual Results:  
Install of 0.4.0 is starting

Expected Results:  
Install of 0.4.1 should be starting

0.4.2 has been released, featuring tons of buggfixes (and solaris suport, but
that's not realy of interest for gentoo...)

Due to changes to snapshot 4 and the final !M nx release, 0.4.1 & 0.4.2 does not
work with the final 1.5.0 backend, so don't apply the patch. Keep it though, as
0.4.3 is supposed to fix this when it is released.
Comment 4 Jon 2005-07-27 15:04:23 UTC
I am using FreeNX v0.42 with NX Components v 1.4.0 and it works great. I did 
originally try it with 1.5.0 components and it did completely fail. But FreeNX 
is fully stable and works great with 1.4.0. The ebuild needs to be changed so 
that 1.5.0 components are blocked, and it will be fine. I don't exactly know 
how to do that though. 
Comment 5 Jon Severinsson 2005-07-27 21:52:53 UTC
Leaving the ebuild as-is and you'll be using 1.4.0 only, only when applying the
patch will 1.5.0 backend be allowed, wich I do not recomend doing...
Comment 6 Jon Severinsson 2005-07-31 21:50:20 UTC
Freenx 0.4.3 is released. It features propper support for the 1.5.0 backend, so
apply the patch. I'm working on 1.5.0 backend ebuilds, but my time is limited...

Ebuild for the 1.5.0 backend! Contains the Windows-Linux resume patch by Sunil.

Sunil's patch.
Comment 9 Martin Honermeyer 2005-08-06 07:37:34 UTC
The above works for me, using FreeNX-0.4.4-rc1 and the 1.4.0 clients. 
Comment 10 Jon 2005-08-07 11:58:10 UTC
FreeNX v0.4.4 was released yesterday. It seems to have a lot of bug fixes in 
it. I hope it doesn't introduce new ones though. :P 
Comment 11 Jon 2005-08-07 18:13:02 UTC
Okay, all the ebuild for the Open Source components of NX and FreeNX v0.4.4 are 
located here: 
There is a bug in FreeNX v0.4.4 that I fixed. :) Enjoy!

Comment 13 Jon Severinsson 2005-08-08 02:32:09 UTC
Hi again.

Yes 0.4.4 is out, and contains many bugfixes. The current ebuild works fine
(with the patch for 1.5.0 support).
It does contain one bug though, and Jon will hopefully submit a patch to this
ebuild soon (if not you might have luck at bug #101691).

Also, please ignore the above nx-x11 ebuild above. It is incomplete and the
patch is realy for nx-x11 1.4.0. I don't know it it will work, or even is
nessesary, with nx-x11 1.5.0, as resolution and resume has had a complete rework
for 1.5.0.
(hopefully) working 1.5.0 ebuilds can be found at bug #101715

As for the duplicate stuff, the bug refered to is newer than this bug, and is
full of errors.

Patch to add support for the 1.5.0 backend.

I found a small error in the previous patch. I had forgotten to update the
dependancy on nxclient to >=1.4.0 instead of =1.4*

0.4.1 & 0.4.2 should use the current 0.4.0 ebuild unodified, while 0.4.3 and
0.4.4 should apply this patch to the current 0.4.0 ebuild.
Comment 15 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-03-05 06:54:28 UTC
Closing bug, now we have freenx-0.5.0 in the Portage tree.

Best regards,
