freenx on Debian etch, IBM Power5 ppc64

There is still no package in the repos for freenx unlike OpenSUSE. You can retrieve the sources from here (thanks to Fabian Franz for the pointer!):

You can download additional packages (source code) (e.g. for nxagent, nxauth) not included in the previous tgz from here:

For consistency's sake, I packaged all sources (sans Fabian's) that I have downloaded but I cannot assure you that they are the latest stable (as of this time). I've done a lot of minor tweaks. It will be cumbersome to document them. Post your questions here if you encounter a problem.

After the installation and configuration, I got this error in the client (version 2.x):
NX> 1000 NXNODE - Version 1.5.0-60 OS (GPL)
NX> 1004 Error: NX Agent exited with exit status 1.
NX> 105 NX> 596 Session startup failed.
NX> 1006 Session status: closed

The possible fixes are documented in this wiki. But apparently the error in my case is something related to a missing shared library being used by nxagent. Make sure you check that all libraries are resolved using the command ldd /usr/NX/bin/nxagent and fulfill the missings. Also make sure that you are using the most updated node.conf using the command nxloadconfig --userconf.

Globe's HOOQ.TV an (unethical) scam!!

After being terribly disappointed with the subscription stage and after also after a very disappointing test drive (at least Netflix tries to be do-no-evil), I am now very disappointed with the un-subscription of with Globe.

Globe sends me a message:

Hi! We'd like to remind you that your free HOOQ will end in 7 days on 10/27/2015. Upon expiry, your subscription will auto-renew to the paid version for P149 per month. If you don't want the paid version, text HOOQ STOP to 8888. before the expiry date. Thank you!

I send the HOOQ STOP to 888 and received:

Sorry, you have entered an invalid keyword. Please make sure your keyword is correct with no extra characters and spaces. For more info on promos, dial *143#, FREE from your Globe/TM mobile phone.

I called Globe Support (211).

Here's the scam:

- GoSurf 999 comes with the HOOQ Free Plan

- After the Free HOOQ Plan (which you did not use because it sucks) expires, it will auto-renew without your consent (!!! UNETHICAL !!!…
