FreeNX on Fedora Core 6 - Noob Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Yes I'm a noob when it comes to Linux so be gentle!! lol



I've recently had a box setup running Fedora Core 6 and would like to access it with NX-Client for Windows.



I've been onto the box using putty and run: yum install nxserver



I'm not sure if everything went well or not, it asked me "Is this ok" 3 times and eventually finished.



On windows I installed the NX-Client v1.5 and entered all the server details.


Initially I was getting "Cannot start local X server" or similar, but with setting compatibility thats been resolved.


Now I'm getting:


"Session Startup Failed"


And the log file this reports is attached to teh bottom of this post!!


I've entered the key from etc/nxserver/client.id_dsa.key into the client but looking through the log its something to do with session ID's or something?!?!



Any help is MUCH appreciated!!
