freenx installation procedure on fedora

0 votes

Not a question rather sharing the recipe for getting freenx server working. There is too many irrelevant commands, all over the place, that confuse things.

1) su
2) yum install nx freenx-server
3) add "AllowUsers nx root " to /var/lib/nxserver/home/.ssh/sshd_config (not sure if this step is necessary. Restart ssh ofcourse.)
4) turn on "ENABLE_SSH_AUTHETICATION=1" in /etc/nxserver/node.conf
5) export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/libexec/nx
6) setenforce 0
6) nxsetup --install --setup-nomachine-key (this will setup nx user etc but wont create client.id_dsa.key and so on. Also dont user --purge --clean option in the command. It destroys home/.ssh/known_hosts files.)
7) nxserver --start (this will create client.id_dsa.key and other related keys)
8) connect using nxclient from no machine. qtnx has problems apparently.

You dont need nxkeygen or copy client.id_dsa.key left, right, and, centre as mentioned in top google search links for freenx configuration.

I found you need to enable the freenx-server.service
(which appears to enable the user nx authorized keys file when it starts and disable it when it stops).

I have an fc17 system in which I've had to change the ethernet controller from an e1000e card to what I believe is an rtl81391`2. I recall changing the 70-persistent-net udev config file, but that appears to no longer exist on my fc17 system.

What is the proper procedure for detecting, initializing, and reconfiguring the system to use my new card?

I believe I'll also had to use dracut to recreate the initrd. I will also need to detect for sure which driver the new ethernet controller uses.

How does one get a clean installation of Fedora? "Clean" means that only those packages are installed that are actually needed and only those services are running that are actually needed.

Why, when installing a new app do we need to also install the -libs and the -devel if the app is needed to make another app work.

Why cannot -libs be part of the installation if they are that important to the operation. Why are -devel, which I'm guessing are development files for the app needed, does this mean the app is bar minimum and cannot be used when required by another app.
