    I’m trying to evaluate some of the NoMachine Enterprise products on a RHEL6.5 server and none of the RPMs (or the tarball) appear to install and work properly.  The init script expects a file that isn’t created (/etc/NX/nxserver).  The nxserver binary (/usr/NX/bin/nxserver) fails because it needs nxd.  The trial license bundled expired 1/11.  Copy/paste of the session details below.  Has anyone gotten this tool installed on RHEL6?  From what I can tell, this is effectively a non-starter.

    This is a bug. Problems with update are not related to the expired evaluation license. You should simply get a warning  message and the server will refuse to work once update completed.

    We have reproduced it and there is a workaround available while users wait for the fix to be released.

    Excellent — /tmp mounted as noexec was the problem.  Switching that allowed the install to complete properly and it now works like a champ.  Fantastic response (especially since I didn’t tell you /tmp was noexec); I’m most impressed!
