Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am running a FreeNX server on Ubuntu 11.10 and am unable to do session shadowing. I get the authorization prompt, but the shadow client crashes after. The NX server log in the user's .nx directory is as follows:

Error: Aborting session with 'Server is already active for display 3000 If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X3000-lock and start again'. Session: Aborting session at 'Mon Oct 1 14:26:44 2012'. Session: Session aborted at 'Mon Oct 1 14:26:44 2012'.

This then deletes the lock file, which is the lock file for the initial Unix session and crashes out. Everything works for a normal session, and shadowing works up to the authorization prompt.

I am using this software:

  • Ubuntu 11.10
  • freenx-server 0.7.3.zgit.120322.977c28d-0~ppa11
  • nx-common 0.7.3.zgit.120322.977c28d-0~ppa11
  • nxagent 1:3.5.0-1-2-0ubuntu1ppa8
  • nxlibs 1:3.5.0-1-2-0ubuntu1ppa8

Any help is appreciated, thanks!
