Make sure the nx account is unlocked (passwd -uf nx).

Enable sshd and selinux logging. See if any errors are logged. Sometimes 
the permissions on the key files need to be adjusted.

When uninstalling, delete the nx directories and the nx user manually, 
just to be sure everything is wiped before re-installing.

I had the nomachine nxserver working on an F8 server, so it is possible. 
(It's not active at the moment, however, so I can't check the configs 
for your).

Fedora + nx/freenx always seems to be horrible struggle. I hope the 
Fedora maintainers can spent some effort in making it more robust.

It's awesome when it works, though, compared to vnc!
