X2Go Packages for Redhat GNU/Linux

Please select one method only and stick to it. Switching between our EPEL repository and the official EPEL repository will not be possible without first uninstalling all X2Go-related packages.

Adding a Repository for X2Go

Adding Our EPEL Packages Repository

Download the .repo file and save it to the correct location:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo \

Edit the file afterwards to select the repositories you need.

As a rule of thumb: source repositories are never needed, unless you want to build packages from source. extras repositories are always needed.

By default, the release repository is enabled and the nightly repository is disabled. If you want to use the nightly packages, disable the release repository and enable the nightly repository.

Note that not all of X2Go may be provided for RHEL 5/6, as these distributions are very old and therefore more work-intensive to develop for.

Hint: If you are behind a proxy, make sure the proxy is defined in /etc/yum.conf. Standard yum repos do not use the same connection mechanisms as RHN channels.

Using the Official EPEL Packages Repository

Installing X2Go Packages

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.
