Summary0004507: freenx source rpm does not rebuild on rhel6
Descriptionfreenx-0.7.3-5.el5.centos.src.rpm does not rebuild on rhel6-beta.
The patch file freenx-0.7.2-centos-diffs.patch must be rediffed to
apply cleanly. Otherwise seems to work fine.

No real bug, just something that could be corrected with the next package release.

Is your tested OS 32-bit or 64-bit?

I built nx/freenx for RHEL6 beta2 a while back. Building itself was not a problem. However, I had trouble with the installation under i386 RHEL6 beta. The x86_64 version had no problem and worked fine.

Curent setup is also x86_64 for me, but I have a few items why I might
change to 32-bit again.

Please keep us posted. The failure with the i386 version was observed with another person. So, I decided to put this on hold and wait for the GA release.

I revisited the problem with RHEL6 beta2 32-bit and found a fix. NX now runs fine on both arches. Potentially a bug in the way certain X-related packages are installed on the 32-bit system. Will post details after some more investigation.

I have uploaded nx/freenx for RHEL/CentOS-6 for testing:

An updated version ( freenx-0.7.3-7.el6.ay and nx-3.4.0-7.el6.ay ) is now in the same place for testing.

http://centos.toracat.org/misc/nx-freenx/6/

They were built from the same srpm that was used to build the current [official] nx/freenx in CentOS-4 and -5.

The next version will have a selinux fix ( bug #5052 ).

Note about the harmless "error":

Error: Could not find 1.5.0 or 2.[01].0 or 3.[01].0 version string in nxagent. NX 1.5.0 or 2.[01].0 or 3.[012].0 backend is needed for this version of FreeNX.

Patch to fix it[1]:

- [ -z "$(strings $PATH_BIN/nxagent | egrep 'NXAGENT - Version 1.5.0|NXAGENT - Version 2.[01].0|NXAGENT - Version 3.[012].0')" ] && \
