OK, I see the problem.  The installer is not happy with both packages
installed during the replacement process.

What we will do to fix it is to have opennx conflict with the NoMachine
nxclient, but not try to replace it as an obsolete.

One will have to manually remove nxclient before they install opennx ...
BUT ... if you that, it does not get confused anymore and it does
remember all the session information from nxclient, etc.

It also will not try to force an upgrade, so you have to want to install it.

Thanks for the Feedback and sorry for the install problems.

The new version is syncing out now, it is opennx-0.16-724.el6.centos.1
