This is an old revision of the document!
Unreleased versions and unofficial (related to the EPEL project) release packages are only available directly from the X2Go project, follow the instructions in the second section to configure your package manager for this.
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.
Download the .repo file and save it to the correct location:
wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/x2go.repo \ http://packages.x2go.org/epel/x2go.repo
For reference, the file will also be inlined here, with the original information being available on http://packages.x2go.org/epel/x2go.repo:
Edit this file with your preferred editor.
$ editor /etc/yum.repos.d/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>
