NX session problem - cannot find/create session files

A freshly installed Suse 11 i386 with freenx and NoMachine’s nxclient installed

When I try to login with the client it fails on downloading the session information, this is the message I’m getting:

NX> 707 SSL tunneling: 1
NX> 1009 Session status: starting
NX> 105 /usr/bin/nxserver: line 1368: 8430 Terminated sleep $AGENT_STARTUP_TIMEOUT
NX> 596 Session startup failed.
NX> 1004 Error: NX Agent exited with exit status 1.

It then suggests running this command to ‘test basic functionality’

ssh -X myserver; /usr/bin/nxnode --agent

Successfully logs in:

Have a lot of fun…

Goes on to say this:

Can’t open /var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionId{8E79E68B1245A3285063246CF85E296F}: No such file or directory.
mv: cannot stat `/var/lib/nxserver/db/running/sessionId{8E79E68B1245A3285063246CF85E296F}’: No such file or directory
NX> 1006 Session status: closed
NX> 280 Exiting on signal: 15

This error occurs only when logging in to accounts on the machine the nx server is running on

Logging in to any accounts on any of the other machines on my lan works fine (I have 2 other machines on suse 11 running an nxserver, no problem with those)

The folder /var/lib/nxserver/db/running is owned by the nx user and the root group with full write permissions to the nx user

I tried changing it so everyone has full permissions temporarily, made no difference at all

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

That’ll be a no then …

I wonder if I would have had more success posting this under the network section
