I did not answer that question before :) ... there is a c program that
needs to be compiled now (nxserver-helper) so there is more than just
bash scripts and the package is now arch dependent ... where as before
is was only text files, batch scripts, and docs.

This is now corrected with the latest versions, which are available now:

freenx-0.5.0-12.el4.centos.i386.rpm
nx-2.1.0-4.el4.centos.i386.rpm

========================================================================

The NX and FreeNX RPMS in the testing Repository have been upgraded.
Here is what has changed:

NX:

1.  Incorporated the latest No Machine releases from this announcement:
http://www.nomachine.com/news-read.php?idnews=188

FreeNX:

1.  Upgraded to the latest SVN version (revision 282) to fix the
xosview / xclock issues that are noted before.

2.  Renamed (and modified) the former patch named fc5patch.diff to
CentOS-4-patch.diff

3.  Removed nxclient.diff as that functionality was rolled in already
with SVN revision 282.

4.  Added nxnode slave mode (and nxserver-helper).

I think this version is more stable than the last ... please test and
provide feedback so we can roll this out.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
