True, but I'm talking about the native SVR4 packages for NoMachine NX
on SPARC Solaris, already bundles for Solaris 8-10. It may work with
minimal hacking on OpenIndiana for SPARC.

Jonathan, could you maybe give me some pointers on how you compiled it
from source? I was trying to read the documentation that came with the
source, and it was so confusing that I wasn't able to finish the task.

I'm a big fan of NoMachine NX, and would *love* to see it in action on
the Solaris and illumos platforms! I already filed an RFE a while ago
when the illumos project was originally forked, but I haven't any
activity since.
