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:
The problem is that I have three PCs two with opensuse 11.4 and one with windows xp both linux machines have installed nxserver for remote control and the xp machine has nxclient, I can connect to both linux machines with the windows client, but when I try with the linux client to the other it outputs the following error:
[code]...I changed the ssh port to 2222. this is the nx software from nomachine the client version is 3.5.0-6
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 users.id_dsa.pub key in the client. long story short: I only get that annoying little error window from Nomachine saying: "Cannot initialize the display service"
I use Fedora 12 and newest free NoMachine NXServer. I have installed all three packages (nxclient, nxnode and nxserver). I'm running sshd on port 22. When I try to connect to my machine, everything works fine, then I see big red M and then is all black.
I have a remote Lucid machine running Neatx to which I can successfully connect using the NoMachine nxclient under Windows. Using the same connection credentials under Karmic and nxclient doesn't work.
I attach screen shots of the session logs under both Windows and Karmic. They appear identical except for the 'Using shared memory parameters' field. Is this important? No authentication errors appear, so I don't think that's the problem. The Karmic session displays 'Established the display connection' and then fails after exactly one minute.
I have installed NoMachine NxClient deb, on Ubuntu 11.04, Nx installed and I connected to my uni server fine. The Nx program was originally in the applications drop down menu in "others". After a restart Nx was no longer in the menu, I dl'd again and found in Ubuntu software center that there was an option to reinstall NXClient, so I reinstalled and the icons appeared in applications/internet. After a restart they(the NX icons) disappeared again.No other programs have disappeared from the app menu like that.edit: after finding edit menu, I noticed nx client (show) was not "ticked" in internet selection. after a reboot the icon is now available in the app/internet menu.Previous to this I found what I thought was the application in shell $/usr/NX/bin/nxclientbut it would not run from shell command.I added to the panel, created an application launcher for /usr/NX/bin/nxclient and it works there, too.
So I don't know exactly if this is where to put this. Because I think this might be NoMachine's problem, but I'm not sure. I am trying to set up FreeNX, and I got it working to connect from my work laptop (windows 7) to my home computer (ubuntu 10.04).
I have it going on a different SSH port, and it claims I'm using custom Keys. But, NoMachine still requires me to put in a password to connect. But I can't do that because I have my ssh setup to key-authentication ONLY.So I can't connect to my home machine UNLESS I turn on password-authentication also. But I don't want password authentication on. So, how can I connect without using passwords? Do I need to use a different client other than NoMachine NX-client? Or is this a setup I have wrong in my ubuntu stuff.
I figure it must be NoMachine, because I can't even attempt to login if I don't first put in a password.
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.
Putting COMMAND_MD5SUM="md5sum" at the end of /etc/nxserver/node.conf fixes the problem.
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 :
Code: neelix:~ # /usr/bin/nxserver --status NX> 100 NXSERVER - Version 3.2.0-73 OS (GPL, using backend: 3.2.0)
I have nx nomachine installed on 64bit opensuse 11.2. All was fine until I ran updates this week and now it seems that it has a mind of its own. (dont remember which packages were updates)Every time I open the cli it just starts typing the equal symbol on its own. In fact every time I open anything that can accept text input it just starts adding equal symbols. It enters them about 2 every second.Code:jason@FileServer:~> =========================I uninstalled all the NX packages, killed the .nx folder in my user folder and then reinstalled the packages and still the same thing.
Dell Precision Workstation running Suse 11.1 & KDE 3.5 as default O/S, with Suse 11.3 KDE4, Ubuntu 10.04 & Win XP Pro as secondary O/S's.Medion PC with Win XP Pro for those windows apps I have to use (against better judgement but because my clients require it!)
On Friday 6th I was having a play with Apache2 running on the Dell Precision on Suse 11.1. I have had a local development webserver for some time to test websites before uploading them a host server. I had wanted to test the DHCP & DNS functions for some time, and this seemed like a good opportunity. But I ran into some problems and decided to un-install the DHCP & DNS. I intended to install a VM and re-install the Apache server on it, to make it easier to troubleshoot.Unfortunately my internet connection on that box is now broken, but only with the Suse 11.1 install. The other 3 O/S's all work fine, and the rest of my machines are all good. In fact the Suse 11.1 install can communicate across the LAN, and print to both the network printers, it just won't connect to the Internet. Turning off the firewall doesn't do anything, and reconfiguring the NIC in YaST doesn't help.
I suspect that there is a config file somewhere with faulty info, but I can't find it. If searched everything that was changed on that date.I have been searching this forum, LinuxQuestions forums, and Googling for 2 days with no real success. I found some interesting threads which I thought would help but so far no luck. I can ping all the interfaces on my LAN, but anything outside is blocked. I thought it might be in the BT HomeHub but that works fine and all the boxes can connect except with the Precision running 11.1.
I am going to use "pthread_setaffinity_np" to bind a thread to a specific core. My application has two threads. I have used mutex to assign a specific id to each thread and then bind that thread to a core different from another core. but it seems that the os assigns both thread to one core.What should I do to bind each thread to a specific core?
Some FreeNX start-up troubles here, need a hand. 1) I am trying to establish a connection from my workplace PC on my workplaces's LAN to my home PC on my private LAN (LAN-to-LAN). Just typing in the public IP of the target LAN in the "Host" field gets me nowhere, as it fails to connect due to a denial at port 22 SSH - even though I've done the forwarding in my home router and punched the required hole in the local firewall of the target machine.
This resembles what I'm looking at: [URL]..2) My home PC is 64-bit Mepis and my workmachine is a 32-bit Ubuntu. Is this a problem?
I wished to use qinternet under openSUSE 11.3 to control multiple interfaces (a mixture of internet/intranet, DHCP/static IP), so I applied the same settings/tests which were successful for kinternet under open/SUSE 11.2: Selected options within Yast2/Network Settings: Traditional Method with ifupEnable Device Control for Non-root User Via QinternetYast2/System/System Services(RunLevel)/smpppd = "yes" From command line terminal:
Default state indicated by different icons. Interface option brought up by right-mouse-clicking on the qinternet/kinternet panel icon and choosing Settings/Various Settings/Startup tab. Note: Regardless of whether qinternet was running or not, internet communications via the relevant network interface still worked.
In case the failure of qinternet/smpppd was simply a PolicyKit issue, I edited /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf to ensure that the relevant user had the necessary privilege to run smpppd (I assume that qinternet can be ignored since it is just the front end for smpppd) e.g.
This made no difference, SO FOR DIAGNOSTIC PURPOSES ONLY, I logged in as root after first removing the power from the network switches externally connected to each network interface (isolating the local host). I then ran qinternet but once again, the Interface option was greyed out. This confirmed fairly conclusively that lack of privilege was not responsible for the qinternet/smpppd problem.
I run a dedicated opensuse 11.1 server with apache (2.2.10-2.9.1) installed. This box has been running for nearly 2 years hosting several low traffic websites. I must admit that I did not give lots of love/attention to the machine over that period. It ran rock solid. The different websites each have their own associated user account and are stored in their own /home/name/public_html/ folder. It was setup through Webmin. Each domain name is also linked to a unique IP (the box has multiple available IPs), however this is configured at my domain provider. All in all a very simple and straightforward setup that never let me down most of the past decade.
Recently the sites on the machine were no longer responding. This happens each other year or so since I write my logfiles to a separate partition. Was df -h and indeed, partition was full. Removed logfiles manually, and while I was at it I decided it was time to run an online update (yast2 / online update that is). Rebooted machine after yast telling me to do so. Sites are no longer working. Can no longer login to webmin. Only thing what works is the 'root' webpage (/srv/www/htdocs folder), which makes me rather clueless as the other sites are just not responding at all, not even a timeout or error message.While I know that deleting logfiles manually is quite stupid, I've done it fore and not really ended up in trouble.
Hence my questions: does this sound familiar to anyone and do you mind to give me a clue about where exactly I should start to look. It's been ages since I actually administrated apache, so I might overlook the obvious. Long story short: any tips are very welcome about what I should check first, what config files might have been changedith the update, etc ...
I have done a basic installation for a server.And then I have removed the screen and the keyboard because I have no place for them.I manage the server from my laptop using NX.I am using the root user account as nx user because I can't stop the server with a normal user.
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.
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:
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.
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).

Same problem as someone else below- my optical drive will not read CDs in SuSE 11.3 (all the latest patches). CDs read fine in Windows, DVDs fine in both.This is a brand new drive, since my old one gave up the ghost last Tuesday (no longer appeared in BIOS)Drive is Samsung SH-S223L, and dmesg gives the following errors:

how much bandwidth does the nxserver client use? Some places have reasonably priced mobile broadband but they limit the Gb usage. As I have a server with unlimited bandwidth, I though I could coonnect to it through nxserver and just use the server via the connection...
I would like open again a Thread regarding NX. Now I removed CentOS 5.2 and installed CentOS 5.4, it seems thats the better one, because here is yum working again,The problem: I cant start nxclient, but the file is installed>
