NX/NeatX remotable desktop sessions

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.3
Evaluation By Productmanager

Description

Since the
NX server libraries are GPL-ed, there is now a Google project
Neatx that provides a free clean and stable NX server implementation. Together with
FreeNX client libraries and a standalone client , all the components are now available for adding out-of-the-box support for a remotely usable personal Linux desktop. Right now it can be achieved by manually loging into a failsafe X session and starting an NX session to a local server. That session can then be detached and resumed remotely, exhibiting the characteristics (including the speed) comparable to, if not better, than an MS windows terminal (remote desktop) session. It would be handy if creating a "remotable" session that works as described above would be automated and could be chosen from the login screen, so in addition to "KDE", "GNOME", "Failsafe" and other session types, there would be a "KDE remotable","GNOME remotable" or similar types of sessions. Since many of business users still primarily work at their desktops, this would enable them to more easily work remotely, as well as bring Linux desktop features on par with that from the Windows world.

NeatX could be packaged in the openSUSE Build Service anytime - and once it's usable and stable pushed for the next release and get integrated nicely.

Are there any volunteers for packaging it?
