GNS3: How to configure a Qemu host

Sep 26, 2011 5:33 PM

I would like to know if somebody knows how to configure a Qemu host on GNS3 0.7.2 running on Ubuntu 10.04.


I have found in the following link


a reference to a patch QEMU that can be found at


I would like to know first if this patch is still require when running GNS3 0.7.2 and




what will be the results of doing the following commands


sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev libsdl-dev libpcap-dev


tar xvzf qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz

cd qemu-0.11.0


patch -p1 -i qemu-0.11.0-olive.patch

./configure --target-list=i386-softmmu


sudo make install


Does the patching will produce a new qemu-img file that should be utilized in Path to Qemu-img of the General Settings of Qemu preference


Also would like to know Path to Qemu only refers to the directory where Qemu-img is installed.


Thanks for your help
