FreeNX AddUser Error


I'm on the step of setting up FreeNX where you add the user, but i use the command nxserver --adduser nxuser. I get this error

500 Error: The passdb function is not activated in node.conf.

Most probably your FreeNX setup will work out of the box without this
functionality and you've been misleaded by an old tutorial or old
documentation to do this step.

If however you really need this functionality, just set

NX> 999 Bye
I've enabled ENABLE_PASSDB_AUTHENTICATION and restarted the service, tried again, and i get the same error. Any help would be great.

EDIT: I just logged in with root, though now i have the problem where it connects, is on the !M logo for 2-4 seconds then silently closes.
