I have included two init scripts [1, 2] in X2Go Session Broker now  
that work on RHEL derived distros.

The script use the daemon function from /etc/init.d/functions.

Because of the limitation of the daemon function not being able to  
fork a process to background, I had to implement the "--daemonize"  
command line option in x2gobroker [3] and x2gobroker-authservice [4].  
Now, both Python executables can fork themselves to background.

Also, I split up x2gobroker-agent from x2gobroker (and also sub  
packaged x2gobroker-daemon, x2gobroker-wsgi and python-x2gobroker). I  
recommend doing the same on OpenSuSE. Find my x2gobroker.spec shipped  
in upstream x2gobroker.git [5].
