-Now you can search for X2Go related package that are now available for your system via YUM:+Alongside with the instructions on the [[wiki:repositories:epel|main EPEL repository page]], we provide a repository archive for archived X2Go EPEL packages for deprecated EPEL "releases". These are provided in the state they were in after their last successful build. This repository is not updated at all, other than when a new EPEL release version is deprecated.

''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.+or
