    GNS3: How to configure a Qemu host

    Stephane

      Hi,

       

      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

       

      http://brezular.wordpress.com/2011/04/02/gns3-qemu-troubleshooting/

       

      a reference to a patch QEMU that can be found at

       

      http://blog.gns3.net/2009/10/olive-juniper/2/7.2

       

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

       

      and

       

      what will be the results of doing the following commands

       

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

      wget http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/qemu/qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz

      tar xvzf qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz

      cd qemu-0.11.0

      wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gns-3/qemu-0.11.0-olive.patch?download

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

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

      make

      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
      Stephane
