Default Help with FreeNX on Sparc

Hi All,

I have a Debian Linux 4 running on Sun Ultra 60 machine. I want to install FreeNX on it so I can access the desktop remotely. I understand there is no binary available for Sparc machines. Could someone send detailed instructions on how to install it?


Thanks in advance!

Have you thought about using other methods for remote desktop access
that are already available in Debian, such as vncserver, vncclient and
(of course) ssh, for remote tasks that don't require a graphical
environment on the remote end?

anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine
architectures.
