  1. #1

    Default undefined symbol: _XGetRequest - /usr/lib/NX/nxagent: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXcomposite.

    I and coming back to suse 12.2 after a while ...
    and one of the key requirement is getting remote access up and runing

    I have added repos for freenx
    FreeNX - openSUSE

    I did struggle a bit with freenx a bit (there ware problem with authenticated_keys file vs authenticated_keys2)

    but now I run into more serious problem that looks like a build issue:

    /usr/lib/NX/nxagent: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _XGetRequest
    NX> 1006 Session status: closed

    It seems to affect both i686 and x64 versions of opensuse 12.2
    However the problem is manifested only when nxnode is starting - I can start X without problem (eg. login into kde)

    I have googleed around and the closes thing I have found is this:
    Gentoo Forums :: View topic - nxserver - symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/

    Default Re: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest - /usr/lib/NX/nxagent: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXcompos

    it appears that
    a) the problem is with X11:RemoteDesktop and home:beyerle:IAC

    so I would recommend using this repo:

    b) on my machine there was problem with rendering (display would not start)
    and the following option has helped (in node.conf):

    Default Re: undefined symbol: _XGetRequest - /usr/lib/NX/nxagent: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXcompos

    two other small issues

    c) proper naming of authorized_keys
    I was unable to connect untill I commented out the line in /etc/sshd/sshd_config restricting allowed name for authrozied keys and restarted sshd server

    d) setting up / installing
    there is quite usefull script for handling the mundane + testing if it works:

    unpack it:
    tar xvf nxsetup.tar.gz

    and copy it over to directory where your nxserver file is.

    P.S. I did find the following post usefull:
