    FreeNX on Fedora 16


    Hi - I'm having some problems getting nxserver running on Fedora. I'm new to Linux so bear with me. I installed via yum and then tried '/sbin/service nxserver start' and got the following error message: "Failed to issue method call: Unit nxserver.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status nxserver.service' for details." Thanks in advance.

    So what messages were displayed in the logs (take a look in /var/log/)? And what output is displayed when you try the systemctl command suggested?

    Now, I will warn you up front that I don't really doing.

    I was having the same issue, and I found this post (jamesmcdonald.id.au/it-tips/whos-down-with-systemd - Add the usual stuff in front, the forum won't let me post URLs yet) and it said:
    Enable it using:
    ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/freenx-server.service' '/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/freenx-server.service'

    Start it using:
    systemctl start freenx-server.service

    That took care of me, maybe it can help you too.
