X2Go packages are provided by the Fedora EPEL project for RHEL and derivative distributions (e.g. CentOS and ScientificLinux). See using EPEL for instructions on how to configure the EPEL repository.
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.
If you wish to install newer or test versions directly from the X2Go project, follow the instructions below in addition to configuring the EPEL repository.
Add the file
x2go.repo to the folder
This can be done using by your preferred editor.
$ editor /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo
A sample content for this file can be found here, with the original information on http://packages.x2go.org/epel/x2go.repo. Be sure to edit this example to match your needs, mostly the
source-tagged repositories are only needed if you intend to build packages from source, while
extras-labeled repositories are always needed. By default, the
release-labeled binaries repository is enabled, while the
nightly-labeled binaries repository is disabled. If you want to try newer, unreleased software, disable the
release-labeled binaries repository and enable the
nightly-labeled binaries repository.
The packages in this repository can be mirrored via
rsync -avP packages.x2go.org::epel </dest/path/of/local/mirror/epel>
