OpenSUSE :: FreeNX On 11 Versus 11.1 - What's The Difference

Jan 13, 2011

I have a script that basically adds a zypper repo, then proceeds to install and configure FreeNX.To add the repo:


zypper addrepo Index of /repositories/X11:/RemoteDesktop/openSUSE_11.1 RemoteDesktop

To install FreeNX & it's relevant dependencies:


zypper install FreeNX

To setup and configure FreeNX:


nxsetup --install --setup-nomachine-key --clean --purge
sed -i 's/AllowUsers idcuser/AllowUsers idcuser nx/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
service sshd reload


After completing these steps on version 11, I can immediately open the FreeNX client (windows 7), and connect. On 11.1, at the very end of the FreeNX connect, just after "Dowloading the session information", I get:


NX> 105 startsession --link="lan" --backingstore="1" --encryption="1" --cache="16M" --images="64M" --shmem="1" --shpix="1" --strict="0" --composite="1" --media="0" --session="" --type="unix-gnome" --geometry="1274x956" --client="winnt" --keyboard="pc102/en_US" --screeninfo="1274x956x16+render"

Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).NX> 280 Exiting on signal: 15 I've googled this to death, and tried a bunch of random changes to both ssh and nxserver, but I can't seem to get rid of it. What might have changed from 11 to 11.1 that could cause this behavior change? The NXserver seems to be configured and running identical on both systems.

Software :: Difference Between Source Versus SRC - RPM

Mar 11, 2010

It is my understanding that building from source is slightly faster since the created binary will be specific to the current kernel/system. This seems to have the drawback of when the kernel is upgraded the source compiled package will no longer work...but this is not always the case. So what kernel upgrades will cause a package from source not to function? Side bar to that, I have a package that is only available in source format that I need to install on numerous hosts. It seems that the upfront work of creating my own RPM for this package is worth it to make managing the package more efficient, and I think I have two choices: src-rpm and standard binary rpm. If I build a src-rpm and I distribute that for installation will a kernel upgrade 'break' the package since it is actually being compiled for a specific kernel at the time of install? So far I have found a lot of information, and have spent time reading the rpm docs, etc, but I don't feel like I have a good grasp of what the specific portability differences are between source, src-rpm, and rpm.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Versus: KDE The Only Difference?

Jul 3, 2009

I recently made an Ubuntu liveCD for a family member, and tested it myself first. It impressed me, so I might possibly be interested in switching distros; but I'm not very familiar with Gnome(GNOME?), so I might try Kubuntu instead. Am I correct in understanding that the only difference is Kubuntu uses KDE (hence the K)? If there are other differences, does Kubuntu share the limited user control that I've heard Ubuntu has, such as locking the root account by default?

Hardware :: Performance Difference - Dual Versus 3 Channel RAM

Apr 12, 2009

There are 3 channel DDR-3 RAM kits available on market.Would its performance be better than dual channel RAM kit, apart from RAM capacity? I'm planning to build a new box testing server consolidation on virtualizaion running Xen/Vserver/OpenVZ as software. All servers running 64bit Linux OS. My new planning is to get 2 sets DDR-3 1333/1600 4Gx2 kit. I may consider 3 channel kit dropping the total RAM capacity to 6G if it has better performance. Besides can mobo support dual channel RAM also allowing 3 channel RAM to work on it without sacrifying performance?

OpenSUSE :: Freenx Fails In 11.2 / Fix It?

May 3, 2010

I'm having some trouble with FreeNX on OpenSuse 11.2. I followed the instructions on this page to set up the server on my linux machine, and I'm connecting to it with the Nomachine client for Windows, running on Windows XP x64. It refuses to complete the connection, and the console log from the NX client is as follows code...

I've searched this forum and many web pages on google, but I haven't found anyone with this exact problem. the fact that it can't stat those files suggests to me that it might be a permissions thing, but I wouldn't expect non-root users to EVER have permission to files in any subdirectory of /var, so I sincerely doubt that they would release a program that requires read/write access to such files, and therefore, I am pretty certain it's a configuration issue, although I'm not experienced enough with the NX server to know where to start looking for the failure. Previous attempts with FreeNX and opensuse 10.3 (I am testing 11.2 for a possible upgrade of all of our linux systems here at my office) yielded totally successful results. the fact that there is no NX server included in the DVD distribution of 11.2 seems a little strange to me, as it was included with 10.3, but this is of little significance compared to my real issues.

OpenSUSE :: No Window Menus In Freenx?

May 3, 2011

I recently upgraded an openSUSE 11.3 install to 11.4 by downloading the DVD, burning it, & chosing the upgrade option upon booting to it. I used all the upgrade defaults. Upon coming back up, I added the FreeNX zypper repository & installed the latest FreeNX. Connecting via FreeNX works, but I'm not able to see any window menus on any of my applications. They get stuck to the top left corner of the screen &/or they don't have the window border surrounding the window (as in the top bar that contains the minimize/maximize buttons).

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX For People Upgrading To 11.3?

Jul 18, 2010

Just incase anyone is suffering from the same problem as I was after upgrading to 11.3 that there was no such file or directory in /var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionID. I found the answer in another forum and thought i would post it here. Basically there is a change in the openssl library used to calculate the md5sum used by nx which stopped it from connecting.

at the end of /etc/nxserver/node.conf fixes the problem.

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX Server Not Running But Responding (?!)?

Feb 28, 2010

I've been working on getting NoMachine and FreeNX working together ... and they're both working well, listening on different ports (guess I should write a howto). At some point I decided to write an init script to control FreeNX behaviour (start, stop, status, setup), since the Ubuntu version has one (called freenx-server) and openSUSE doesn't, but I noticed that it was not necessary, as FreeNX got started automatically... but how ? I could not find any init.d script or command which would start the FreeNX server. Indeed it wasn't actually running :

neelix:~ # /usr/bin/nxserver --status
NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 3.2.0-73 OS (GPL, using backend: 3.2.0)

OpenSUSE Network :: FreeNX / Nomachine NXclient - Thread (nxserver Now Broken?)

Sep 16, 2010

This thread (nxserver now broken?) has inspired me to install FreeNX and the client from nomachine on openSUSE-11.2 (this is the version used on both, server and client machine). The good news is: basically it works. I can connect and get the desktop. However, I have some trouble with the keyboard. Up and Down arrow keys do not work. The up arrow triggers a screen snapshot. The down arrow key does nothing. I tried to connect using qtnx as well. This does not work. Result is:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Locking Of Audio Devices: 11.2 Versus 11.3

Jul 23, 2011

I am running a java-based music player on two machines, one running 11.2 and the other running 11.3. I wrote the code myself, so I have complete control over it. Both machines have Sun java development kit installed, and both have version 1.6.0. The tracks of a given album are each played by a separate thread. Each thread requests the use of the audio device and plays through it. Under 11.2, the device is then locked for the use of this thread, and once the playing is through the lock on the device is automatically removed and the next thread starts playing its music without difficulty. I have no control over this lock, though. It appears to happen at the OS level, independently of my code.

When the exact same code is running under 11.3 the first thread plays through as before, but then the next thread does not manage to get hold of the audio device. It appears to play but no music is heard. When it finishes and the third thread tries to start, I get a "line unavailable" exception. difference between 11.2 and 11.3 in the locking mechanism of audio devices by an application? Is there anything programmatic I can do to remove the lock myself?

OpenSUSE Network :: Can't Get FreeNX With Nomachine Client To Work - "Cannot Initialize Display Service"

Mar 1, 2011

I have been spending hours and hours trying to find a "Remote installation for Dummies" ....kind of step-by-step approach. But after several evenings googling and reading. This is how far I got: I have installed FeeNX on my server and after sudo nxserver -- status I get a reply like this:

NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 2.1.0-72 OS (GPL. using backend: 3.4.0)
NX> 110 NX Server is running
NX> 999 Bye

so to me that looks like the server process is running. I also installed the windows Nomachine on my laptop and hooked it all up in my local network (so no routers whatsoever) I disabled the firewalls on both my laptop and my server. just in case configured the client for port 22 and the fixed IP address of my server. even imported the key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"

OpenSUSE Install :: What Is Difference Between OpenSUSE Desktop And Server?

Dec 21, 2009

I am new to Linux. I want to set up a home file/media server using Linux and have been investigating the possibility of using OpenSUSE for this task for a couple days now. I posted up some questions over at linux questions, but figured this one would be better suited for the OpenSUSE forum. My question is simple, is there any fundamental difference between OpenSUSE Server, and OpenSUSE desktop?

What I mean is, is there any difference to the basic programming of the operating system. From what I gather, when you install a Linux Distro for a server, it is just a striped down version of the desktop install. It has no GUI, and installs the complete bare minimum of software to get your server up and running. Is this correct? I am asking these questions because, as I said, I am new to Linux. I am not comfortable using command line only, and would very much like to install the desktop version of OpenSUSE, plus Samba, openSSH and Webadmin, then use that configuration for a server. Would setting up OpenSUSE as I stated above be the same as using the server install, just more "bloated?" Or is the server version of OpenSUSE coded differently?For example, comparing Windows Vista to Windows Home Server. Windows Vista isn't practical to use as a home server OS, simply because it was never coded to be one. Where as Home Server comes with software and is setup to be a server.

From what I understand, and I could be wrong, and please correct me if I am. Linux is much different. Any Linux distro can be a server, even the desktop version. You just need to get the proper programs (like Samba, SSH, Webadmin) for the job. The people who use the Server version, simply just want something less bloated then the desktop version, but the desktop version works just as good as a server if you have the proper hardware? I was debating on putting Windows Home server on the machine, but very much want to learn Linux, and figure this is as good of an opportunity as any. It also helps that a desktop install of OpenSUSE takes less resources then Windows Home Server.

OpenSUSE Install :: 32- And 64-bit Difference?

Sep 29, 2010

Not much of an expert with computers and completely new with Linux. I am considering installation of openSUSE 11.3 and I know for a fact that my PC can handle the 64-bit version. Questions:

1) Do the 32- and 64-bit versions install with the same kind of software packages?
2) Does the 64-bit version have more/less/equal available software in the repositories for download?
3) If I wanted to set up a workgroup with another PC that has Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows XP Pro (both 32-bit) installed, would it matter which bit version of openSUSE I use? (In terms of ease in creating the workgroup, access of files, etc.)

4) If I install the 32-bit version now, can I switch to the 64-bit version later? What are the caveats?

As I said at the beginning, I am not much literate on these things so I hope I am not asking nonsense questions...

OpenSUSE Install :: Difference Between CD's And DVD's?

Jul 23, 2011

On the downloads page I notice the cd's are not upgradable, but the dvd free version is.. This seems backward to me. The cd's have less stuff so they should be able to be upgraded to the fuller version via the repos - or at least get all the stuff it's missing. Where as the dvd's are stuffed with over 3 gigs of things one would think it should not need any upgrading.

Or are they talking about being upgradable to the paid for version? or something entirely different?

OpenSUSE :: Difference Between Core, Community And Playground?

Feb 17, 2010

I've been thinking of going into opensuse for a long time and now with KDE 4.4 is finally out - I'm going to do it. The installation shouldn't be a problem but I wonder how I can upgrade to kde 4.4, since opensuse 11.2 will have 4.3 by default? I saw in the documentation to add these repos:

# Core packages:
# Community: Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.2_KDE4_Factory_Desktop
# Playground: Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Playground/openSUSE_11.2_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

whats the difference between core, community and playground? And isnt there "stable" repos for the KDE 4.4 release? And are there a repo with amarok 2.3 Beta?

OpenSUSE :: Dolphin Access Permission Display Difference 11.2/11.3

Sep 20, 2010

I'm using Dolphin 1.5 on KDE 4.5.1 on openSUSE 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4(M1).

I select a folder and right-click to get "properties." On the "permissions" tab, I select "advanced permissions." Up until that moment, everything is the same on all three versions. Then -

On 11.2, I get a panel sub-headed "access permissions" which has one column headed "special" which has three buttons. Below that is a panel in which I can add, edit or delete entries so that I can, say, grant one user special permissions.

On 11.3 and 11.4, I get a panel with the same heading, "access permisssions," but which is very different apart from that. Below the heading is a table containing 4x3 buttons for setting "user," "group" and "others" but no panel such as in 11.2.

This different behaviour occurs for the identical user and folder. I've checked that Dolphin preferences are the same for 11.2 and 11.3. Why am I getting a less useful display from the later versions of openSUSE?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 - Difference In Graphics Card Performance

Apr 22, 2011

I have installed several different distro's over the last coupled of weeks and have finally as intended come back to 11.4. Last time I installed it my pc was fitted with an older nvidia card and I installed a newer 200 series and got it to work with X11 using the nvidia driver. This time I did the install with the new card in and things haven't gone the same way. I have finished up with the os drivers on my system, nouveau and "swrast (No 3D Acceleration) (7.10)". Performance wise it's way way behind the nvidia driver.

Glxgears for instance runs at under 1/2 the speed even at a lower resolution. I suppose I could still configure to suite my monitor but given that difference in performance would you? I have done what I can easily do with repositories but no signs of nvidia drivers. I can download one as I did last time but from what I have read previously the above drivers may mean that I have to recompile the kernel. A simpler solution might be to re install with my old card in. Can't say I'm too keen on either option. Some distro or the other had a driver helper and installed the nvidia one perfectly.
