 +Some packages from ''​[x2go-extras]''​ are required for the nightly built packages as well as for [[wiki:​repositories:​epel|released RPM packages]]. [[http://​packages.x2go.org/​epel/​6/​extras/​x86_64/​rpms/​|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.
