Nightly Builds

Nightly builds are derived from the X2Go Git site and always reflect the state of HEAD in Git (branch: master).

Help us testing new X2Go component versions by installing nightly built X2Go packages on your test rigs. Use nightly-builds at your very own risk and give feedback if things break after installation of nightly built packages.

If unsure, ask on IRC or on the X2Go development mailing list before installing nightly built packages.

FYI: For those who wonder what the word ,,heuler“ means when stumbling over some of the nightly-builds package archive URLs. A ,,heuler” is the German word for a baby seal that has been abandoned by its mother (or whose mother has been killed by seal hunters).

Nightly Builds for GNU/Linux

We provide nightly builds of X2Go client and X2Go server components for several GNU/Linux based distributions: Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu GNU/Linux, Fedora GNU/Linux and Redhat Enterprise Linux (and derivatives).

Nightly-Builds for Debian GNU/Linux

The nightly builds for Debian can be added to your local system by putting these two lines into /etc/apt/sources.list.d/x2go.list (example for Debian squeeze):

# X2Go nightly builds repository
deb http://packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze main heuler
# X2go nightly builds repository (sources)
deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/debian squeeze main heuler

Note: to get all packages relevant to X2Go onto your system, please also add the main area of the Debian package repository to your APT sources when installing any of the nightly built packages.

Nightly Builds for Ubuntu GNU/Linux

The nightly builds for Ubuntu can be retrieved from a PPA on Launchpad. Use the follwing command to add the ppa:x2go/ppa as a package source to your local system:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/ppa

Please make sure that you have activated Ubuntu packages from main and universe when installing/testing x2goserver.

Nightly Builds for Fedora GNU/Linux

We provide nightly builds for the latest and still support Fedora distributions.

The below '.repo' file is for Fedora 20. Install the below file as '/etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo'.

[x2go-nightly]
name=Upstream X2Go Packages (nightly builds)
baseurl=http://packages.x2go.org/fedora/20/heuler/$basearch
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
protect=0

Nightly Builds for RHEL

We provide nightly builds for RHEL-5, RHEL-6 and RHEL-7 (x86_64 architecture only for now). For RHEL-5 only the X2Go Server side is available, because both X2Go client implementations (X2Go Client and PyHoca) won't build on the very old library base of RHEL/EPEL-5.

The below '.repo' file is for RHEL-6 and derivatives (e.g. Centos 6 or Scientific Linux 6). Install the below file as '/etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo'.

[x2go-nightly]
name=Upstream X2Go Packages (nightly builds)
baseurl=http://packages.x2go.org/epel/6/heuler/$basearch
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
protect=0

[x2go-extras]
name=Upstream X2Go Packages (extra packages)
baseurl=http://packages.x2go.org/epel/6/extras/$basearch
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1
protect=0

These repositories also depend on (and replaces the X2Go) packages from the Fedora EPEL project. See using EPEL.

The [x2go-extras] repository is currently / temporarily required for installing some of the X2Go packages via our RHEL-5 and RHEL-6 repository.

If you want to intall X2Go nightly builds for RHEL-5 or RHEL-7, simply replace the “6” in the above block by “5” or “7”.

Some packages from [x2go-extras] are required for the nightly built packages as well as for released RPM packages. Those packages are not part of X2Go, but required as dependencies. They finally have to be integrated into the official EPEL-6 project's repository.

Preview Builds for MS Windows

Currently we provide irregular pre-views of X2Go Client / PyHoca-GUI binaries for MS Windows. Refer to our download server for what previews are available.

If someone feels like volunteering and wants to help out with build automation of the MS Windows version of X2Go Client / PyHoca, please contact the X2Go developer team.

Preview Builds for Mac OS X

Currently we provide irregular pre-views of X2Go Client binaries for Mac OS X. Refer to our download server for what previews are available.

If someone feels like volunteering and wants to help out with build automation of the Mac OS X version of X2Go Client, please contact the X2Go developer team.
