Suse dropped it since then, so its with "community" now, so
you have to do your own quality control !!

Sounds like you chose a broken one :-(

I think someone produced a patched FreeNX for Opensuse, but I don't
use it 'cos i made my own a few years ago.

The most up to date scripts (nxnode etc) are in the ubuntu packages,
which I think were what the suse community packager used.

Search the forum for the last couple of months in the first instance.

Make sure you use the latest NX clients and NX libraries. There is an rpm
of 3.4.0 for Opensuse in the community repositories.

Let me know how you get on.

It IS possible to get it working properly.
