NoMachine fails after Fedora 29 to 30 upgrade

The upgrade from Fedora 29 to 30 requires that the package libxcrypt-compat be installed for NoMachine v6.6.8_5_x86_64 to function properly. The package is available in the normal F30 repository.

The following is taken from the library description.

This package contains the library providing the compatibility API for applications that are linked against glibc’s libxcrypt, or that are still using the unsafe and deprecated, encrypt, encrypt_r, setkey, setkey_r, and fcrypt functions, which are still required by recent versions of POSIX, the Single UNIX Specification, and various other standards. All existing binary executables linked against glibc’s libcrypt should work unmodified with the library supplied by this package.

Hello @rlengland—welcome to the community!

Are you experiencing an issue with the upgrade, or is this a note that you’re making here for the benefit of others?

This is only a note for the benefit of others. It took me a while to sort this out and I wanted to document it where it might do some good. The F30 install was smooth (if a bit long) and so far everything else seems to be working fine.
