It was my experience that you don't need to run nxsetup to get freenx working. 
Basically install, set up the config file, restart sshd, import the key to your
client, and you're in.
Comment 2 Frank Büttner 2007-11-02 08:27:57 EDT
Hm, but in the doc directory there are no doc how to setup the config files.
Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2007-11-29 12:14:56 EST
nxsetup is for installing from the sources, e.g. it would conflict with the
files from the rpm. If something from nxsetup is missing in the packages we
should try to add it if possible.
Comment 4 Axel Thimm 2007-11-29 12:39:05 EST
Frank, could you list what configuration nxsetup would perform for you that the
current packages don't? Note that rpm does nto have an interactive mode by
design, so no site specific configuration that requires interaction with the
user can be done on a package level.
Comment 5 Frank Büttner 2007-11-29 13:04:31 EST
As an workaround I have installed the rpm packages from http://www.nomachine.com.
This works, but it have an total different config file structure. Because I need
an fast solution for it. When there are better documentation how to config the
freenx package than I can try it again. An simple yum install freenx are to
less, because not nxclient can connect.
Comment 6 Axel Thimm 2007-12-28 19:17:36 EST
Well, this is not a bug, there is no open source GUI to travel you through the
config file setup yet, nxsetup also just does some basic setup.
