Thanks for testing.

I forgot to mention that the selinux fix was needed only for CentOS-6.
CentOS-5 did not need any adjustment.

What to include as 'Requires' can be tricky. NX needs a desktop for
sure but it can be gnome or KDE or even something else. So far, it's
up to the user to make sure X and a desktop are available when using
NX.
