X2Go Packages for Redhat Enterprise Linux and alike (EPEL)

To get started you'll need to configure your local system to access the official X2Go EPEL repository. Please keep in mind that this installation manual will guide you through the installation on a RHEL-6 based system. The repository will basically offer you packages for i386 and amd64 architectures.

First, make your system ready for using EPEL-6.

Note: By adding EPEL package archives to your system you surpass a point of no return. Only do this if you are sure you want to do this.

Adding this Repository to your Package System

Then, please add the file x2go.repo to the folder /etc/yum.repos.d/. This can be done using by your preferred editor.

$ editor /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo

Then add the X2Go repository to your YUM setup:

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

#[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

Now you can search for X2Go related package that are now available for your system via YUM:

$ yum search x2go

Congratulations, you are now able to access the X2Go packages. You may continue by installing x2goserver, x2goclient or pyhoca-gui or any other of the available packages.
