FreeNX Access to HDA in Fedora 12 not working- Resolved

Postby gator94 » Thu Dec 10, 2009 7:57 am

I upgraded ( clean install) my Amahi to Fedora 12 yesterday-- I had been using FreeNX (Windows version) with my Fedora 10 without a problem. However, after the clean install of Fedora 12, when trying to access my headless Amahi server through FreeNX (Locally), using the NXclient from my Win 7 computer, i was obtaining the following error:

"cat: /var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionId{(STDIN)}: No such file or directory NX> 280 Exiting on signal: 15"

As Google is our friend, I found this bug reported in: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=521090.

The solution:
" As a work around to this, in the /etc/nxserver/node.conf file one can add the
following line to the end of the file:

COMMAND_MD5SUM="md5sum"

This will override the default COMMAND_MD5SUM="openssl md5" and it allowed the
session to start normally."

This resolved this problem for me. I am now able to once again reach my server headless as I was in Fedora 10.

Hope this helps a few of you that may encounter this issue.
