Summary0006022: NXPlayer and FreeNX: Cannot Resume Suspended Session
DescriptionThe issue was originally filed by Nick Couchman on the freenx mailing list [1].

I'm using NXPlayer on OSX to connect to a CentOS 5 machine running FreeNX. The FreeNX version is 0.7.3, the NX version is 3.5.0. I can establish the initial session, but if I disconnect and try to reconnect, I get an empty session list. I saved off the logs from the client, and I see a bunch of the following entries:

39426 901 15:13:50 270.461 ClientSessionList: WARNING! The following buffer line has an unexpected size: '1000 unix-gnome C3A363CB88E51EAC549A197C0C030987 --D--PSA 24 1920x979 Suspended rnode08 (Shadowed)'.
39426 901 15:13:50 270.489 Utility: WARNING! Attempt to trim a null or empty string.
39426 901 15:13:50 270.511 ClientSessionList: WARNING! The following buffer line has an unexpected size: '0 Local A398997085D6FD019D0DCCB28F848FFB -------- Running X0 (Local)'.
39426 901 15:13:50 270.520 Utility: WARNING! Attempt to trim a null or empty string.

So, it looks like FreeNX is delivering the session list to the client in such a way that it is incompatible with the newer clients. Any idea what can be done to resolve this? Is this something with the FreeNX code, or the way the open source components of NoMachine are compiled?


Nick later submitted a patch that fixes the problem [2].
