Installing FreeNX on Centos, quick question.


I got a brand new server. It has GNOME, Centos 5.0, and cpanel already installed on it.

I just installed freenx using:
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/FreeNX

But I now have to install the 'Nomachine Client', but I'm not sure which one to download at:
http://www.nomachine.com/download-client-linux.php

I usually download CentOs rpm files or install what I need with yum, but there's no CentOs option listed on that download page.

Could someone help me out on to which file to download for CentOs, and how to install it? Thanks.

Thanks.

use the rhel5 one, it is, by definition of what centos is, guarenteed to work.

Thanks..

So the rpm:
Quote:
NX Client RPM for Linux - i386
For Red Hat Enterprise 4/5, SuSe 10/10.1/10.2/Enterprise 10, Mandriva 10.1/2005/2006/2007, Fedora Linux Core 3/4/5/6, Fedora 7
One should work?

And as this is a new server, is there any way to tell if I have i386 or x86_64?

Thanks again.

well that RPM is clearly deliberately very generic, a lowest common denominator as it were. even if it was specifically for rhel 5 "only" centos should take it just fine.

as for the architecture, check uname or cat /proc/cpuinfo to list whether you've a standard 32 bit cpu or a 64 bit one. generally though, unless you specifically want 64 bit, it'll be 32 bit.

I just typed some weird ctrl combination, and I got

GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release (i686-redhat-linux-gnu), so I'm guessing by i686, I have 32bit.

And my processor is a Dual-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2214 HE, which shows 4 virtual processors.

Thanks, looks liked it worked.
