-====== X2Go Packages for Debian GNU/Linux ======+====== ​Archived ​X2Go Packages for Debian GNU/Linux ======
-To get started you'll need to configure your local system to access ​the official X2Go Debian repository. ​Please keep in mind that this installation manual will guide you through ​the installation on a Debian wheezy (jessie, sid) systemThe repository ​will basically offer you packages for i386 and amd64 architectures.+Alongside with the instructions on [[wiki:​repositories:​debian|the main Debian repository ​page]], we provide a repository archive for archived X2Go Debian packages for deprecated Debian GNU/Linux releasesThese are provided ​in the state they were in after their last successful buildThis repository ​is not updated at all, other than when a new Debian GNU/Linux release version is deprecated.
-__Exceptions:​__+===== Adding this Repository to Your Package System =====
-  * **Debian lenny:** If you really use X2Go under Debian lenny and require us to provide recent X2Go versions for lenny, then you have to contract us to do that. The lenny packages will be removed from our archives at the end of 2013. +==== Bootstrapping ​the Repository GPG Keys ====
-  * **Debian squeeze: **X2Go packages will be offered for Debian squeeze at least until squeeze is still officially supported as ''​oldstable''​ by the Debian project. +
-  * **ARM architecture:​** for Debian squeeze and wheezy on ARM-based (Debian/​armel) devices we provide (currently outdated) client-side packages (x2goclient,​ pyhoca-gui, pyhoca-cli plus dependencies). No nightly-builds,​ no server packages, though.+
-===== Adding this Repository ​to your Package System =====+Make sure to either have installed the ''​x2go-keyring''​ package previously or add the GPG key as described on [[wiki:​repositories:​debian#​bootstrapping_the_repository_gpg_keys|the main Debian repository page]].
-Before starting to edit your system configuration,​ you'll need to add the needed GPG keys of the repository. Please switch to a user which has administrator privileges on your system in your preferred command line client:+==== Adding ​the Actual Repository ====

 +If you already have the X2Go Debian Repository in your apt sources, the only thing you need to do is changing the repository address from ''​''​ to ''​''​.
-The following commands will ensure that your system will be able to work with the repository archive key. We have also provided our archive key and the X2Go maintainers'​ keys in keyring package called ''​x2go-keyring''​ (see below). If you choose to install that package you can skip these first steps...+=== Adding ​New Repository ===
-<code bash> +If this is a new installation on a fresh machine, follow these steps. Note, that these packages are completely unmaintained and bug reports will not be accepted. This also holds for security-related issues.

Our pseudo-codename setup is not guaranteed to be in sync with Debian's releases, so using the ''​stable'' ​codename might mean that you will actually get packages for what Debian calls ''​oldstable'' after a new Debian distro release for a considerable amount of time.</​note>​
 +<note warning>​Switching between components usually requires uninstalling all X2Go packages first! The only upgrade path that is considered somewhat safe is main (release packages) to heuler (nightly packages), but there are no guarantees regarding the stability or usefulness of nightly packages.</​note>​
