How are you loading the extension, and what version of DSL are you running?

I've had it working with no issues in dslv1.5

Hi dare2dreamer,

I did several tests of nxclient-1.5.0.dsl with :
. dsl-1.5
. on a Compaq NV400 (laptop)

Three methods:
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 ?

Thank you.

At 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.
