Installing Freenx?

Postby c-m on Fri Mar 02, 2012 4:32 am

How does one go about installing and setting up free-nx with SSH on LMDE?

The best guide only covers Ubuntu - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeN ... and_higher

The Freenx debian repos don't work, and the download page is pure blank - http://freenx.berlios.de/download.php

What are LMDE users suppose to do?

Thanks

Add in the repo works.

If i install free nx is wants to remove sysvinit - the description of sysvinit is: "This package contains programs required for booting
a Debian system and doing basic process management."

I'm guessing its not safe to do this?

I'm going to say no.
But someone who is a bit wiser on the workings of "sysvinit" should, hopefully, come along and shed a better light on this.
