I'm hoping someone will be able to offer some advice on desktop
shadowing with the latest CentOS 4's FreeNX.
I've installed the latest FreeNX RPMs as described on the wiki:
[james@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa |grep nx
And I can NX in using two separate test user accounts.
However when I try to enable shadowing I encounter two problems:
1) The shadow selection dialog doesn't show usernames (the column is
simply blank). The result is that you need to know the display number
2) On choosing a display, I get an error connecting (and an
authentication request is never shown on the display being shadowed).
I can work around 2 by first doing 'xhost +' on the display which is
about to be shadowed. But this isn't ideal...
Any ideas / tips / pointers to more documentation appreciated!
NXlog attached containing: 1 session created, followed by attempt to
shadow from another user account.
