 +==== Base Installation ==== 
 + 
 +Download ​the .repo file and save it to the correct location: 
 +<code bash> 
 +wget -O /​etc/​yum.repos.d/​x2go.repo \ 
 + https://​packages.x2go.org/​epel/​x2go.repo 
 +</​code>​

-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 ''​enabled''​ key. ''​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.+As a rule of thumb: ''​source''​-labeled ​repositories are never needed, unless ​you want to build packages from source''​extras''​-tagged ​repositories are always needed. 
 + 
 +By default, the ''​release''​-labeled repository is enabled ​and the ''​nightly''​-tagged ​repository is disabled. If you want to use the unreleased, more up-to-date packages, disable the ''​release''​-labeled repository and enable the ''​nightly''​-tagged repository. 
 + 
 +To use Saimaa ESR, enable the ''​saimaa''​-labeled repository ​and disable the ''​release''​- or ''​nightly''​-tagged repositories. 
 + 
 +Note that not all of X2Go may be provided for RHEL/EPEL 5/6, as these distributions are very old and therefore more work-intensive to develop for. 
 + 
 +<​note>​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.</​note>​
