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.
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).
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).
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.
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
universe when installing/testing
We provide nightly builds for the latest and still support Fedora distributions.
'.repo' file is for Fedora 20. Install the below file as
[x2go-nightly] name=Upstream X2Go Packages (nightly builds) baseurl=http://packages.x2go.org/fedora/20/heuler/$basearch gpgcheck=0 enabled=1 protect=0
We provide nightly builds for EPEL-5, EPEL-6 and EPEL-7 (x86_64 architecture only for now). For EPEL-5 only the X2Go Server side is available, because both X2Go client implementations (X2Go Client and PyHoca) won't build on the very old library base of RHEL/EPEL-5.
'.repo' file is for EPEL-6 (RHEL-6 and derivatives, like e.g. Centos 6 or Scientific Linux 6). Install the below file as
[x2go-nightly] name=Upstream X2Go Packages (nightly builds) baseurl=http://packages.x2go.org/epel/6/heuler/$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
[x2go-extras] repository is currently / temporarily required for installing some of the X2Go packages via our EPEL-5 and EPEL-6 repository.
If you want to intall X2Go nightly builds for EPEL-5 or EPEL-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.
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.
