FreeNX client?

Nomachine offers a freenx client for a number of linux distros but unfortunately Arch is not one of them.  They do have others like suse, fedora, and debian available:

Is there any way to use one of these to install on arch?

Re: FreeNX client?

The server is in AUR, but no client. Try the statically compiled tar version, that seems the most distro independent one.

Re: FreeNX client?

I saw it without coffee. Does that mean that you're addicted to coffee, if you can't function normally without it anymore? ;-)

Re: FreeNX client?

Actually, I rarely drink coffee.. I just used it as an excuse.  It's easier than admitting stupidity. smile

Re: FreeNX client?

Actually installed it but am getting this error when I try to execute the binary:

/usr/NX/bin/nxclient: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Looks like this library is not in the repos.  Do I have to download and compile that or might it have been replaced by another lib?

edit: looks like Arch installs it as part of gcc in /usr/lib/ so perhaps it's the libc6.2-2.so.3 that is missing.  Any idea how to get it?

Re: FreeNX client?

libstdc++ libs are provided by gcc, the one the static bulild asks for here is very old/outdated. You can try symlinking libstdc++.so.6.0.3 to the requested name- although I doubt if it will work.

Re: FreeNX client?

I tried that but I got the same error.  I also modified it a bit to:

ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3

but that gave me this error when I ran the binary:

nxclient: symbol lookup error: nxclient: undefined symbol: cerr

I think I need gcc 2.95 to get this working.. I'll probably just hold off until they release a new version of the client instead.

Re: FreeNX client?

In other distros, this thing is provided by some "compat-gcc" package. On Arch, I have no idea...

Re: FreeNX client?

It means that they lied and that it isn't really a static version, because static versions wouldn't need any libs at all...

But try this version instead, I accidentally gave the wrong one (not the newest).

Re: FreeNX client?

Hmm.. they are both 1.4.0-91 so I'm pretty sure I had the most recent verison.  Plus, that last link was for an RPM file..

Re: FreeNX client?

Crap, sorry, so the previous one should work, if they knew how to make statically compiled stuff. No source of course...

Can try out all versions, until you find something that works. You can use rpmextract or rpmunpack to unpack the things. No idea what format debian packages are, but I guess just tar.gz or tar.bz2.

Re: FreeNX client?

Looks like just today they released the code for version 1.50 (of the server I'm guessing) So I guess it won't be long before we see 1.50 client too.  I think I'll just be patient and wait it out..

Re: FreeNX client?

I'd love to get freenx working, my gf has a Win Xp (yuck) machine in Nottingham, and I'm down here in S.Wales, so when here comp screws up I can help a bit more easily.

I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Re: FreeNX client?

I was using the 1.5 beta (rev 1) code just fine for a while now (hence my freenx server pkgbuild).

By the way, they just released rev 2. Final is still a little ways off methinks.
