Problem with Starting FreeNX. Followed Guide. Centos. Dont think GNOME is running.


Hey, using a guide found at: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/FreeNX

I installed freenx and the client on the server, then downloaded the client on my windows pc.

The Server is running CentOs 5.0, cpanel 11, and I also had GNOME installed.

The problem is, I don't think GNOME is setup, or running.

When Connecting I get this:

Hopefully this will be my last obstacle with installing freenx

I found this:

Quote:
c) check that you can login with the user you want to connect with nxclient to the nxserver and that you can start your windowmanager (kde/gnome/xfce4/etc).
If that fails make sure your home directory exists! Otherwise you can connect/authenticate to the nx-server but your windowmanager won't start and the server will tell you this:
.....
NX> 105 NX> 596 Session startup failed.
NX> 1004 Error: NX Agent exited with exit status 1.
NX> 1006 Session status: closed
NX> 1009 Session status: starting
NX> 1001 Bye.
/usr/bin/nxserver: line 1077: 32622 Terminated sleep $AGENT_STARTUP_TIMEOUT
Can't open /var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionId{XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX}: No such file or directory.
mv: cannot stat `/var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionId{XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX}': No such file or directory
......
If you use domain-accounts via freenx use pam_mkhomedir so that the home directory will be created upon login
I'm pretty sure I'm having that problem. I don't know if this helps out or not, but I'm trying to provide as much info as I can to give yall the info.

i will pay someone 5.00 via paypal if you would like if you can help me setup nxserver. That's what I have in my account right now, and we desperately need freenx and tightvnc to get started.
