Posted by dare2dreamer on Nov. 15 2005,08:11You should be able to download the extension from the testing links above and load it with mydsl-load. After that, you'll have a menu item to load the nx client, or you can run /usr/NX/bin/nxclient
Posted by Superunke on Nov. 15 2005,10:47hi dare2dreamer,
i'm sorry, i'm newbie in dsl.
the installation failed whit this
warning: locale not supported by C libary, locale unchanged
Posted by dare2dreamer on Nov. 16 2005,07:51How are you loading the extension, and what version of DSL are you running?
I've had it working with no issues in dslv1.5

I did several tests of nxclient-1.5.0.dsl with :
. on a Compaq NV400 (laptop)
1. Putting nxclient-1.5.0.dsl directly under (root) : at startup, dsl regconizes it, tries to install, but fails
2. In putting nxclient-1.5.0.dsl under /optional then trying to install it under mydsl menu : same result,
4. By doing "mydsl-load /optional/nxclient-1.5.0.dsl" with console: same result,
In three cases, the same message returns:
tar: short read
Cannot allocate color
Do you have any idea ?
Posted by dare2dreamer on Nov. 25 2005,23:14At a guess it sounds like the mydsl-load script is having trouble unpacking the extension. You might try downloading a clean copy and trying again, just to rule out the possibility that you got a bad copy.
You might also try the 1.4 version I made a while back. I've gotten both to work without issues.
I have seen that mydsl occassionally installs the extension, but doesn't update the menus properly. You might want to cd into the /usr/NX/bin directory and see if its actually installed and just not showing up in the menu structure.
All off the top of my head, of course.
