nxserver installation on loop3

Postby kainalu » Sat Jul 07, 2007 21:30

Hi,

I was wondering how to get nxserver working on loop 3. i downloaded the one off portage called nxserver-freeediton. it gave me an error about needing to run nxnode --install but when i do I get this:

The specified SYSTEM must be one of the following operating systems,
or none. In the latter case the NX setup will try to autodetect the
system or will choose the layout that better resembles one of the
known systems.

redhat RedHat 7.3, 8.0, 9.0, AS, ES, etc.
suse SuSE 7.3, 8.x, 9.x, etc.
mandrake Mandrake 9.2 10.x, etc.
debian Debian Woody 3.0, Unstable, Ubuntu, etc.
solaris Sun Solaris 8.0, 9.0, 10.0, etc.
fedora Fedora Core 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.
NX> 704 ERROR: Unable to autodetect the operating system type, please specify it


how would i go about fixing this since Gentoo/sabayon are not options? it is in the portage tree so i figured it is gentoo compatible. all the other nxservers in the portage tree error out w/ conflicts
