Installing GNS3 on CentOS


I'm trying to load GNS3(Router emulation software) on to a CentOS to test out NetFlow. The only online tutorial I found was for ubuntu and it doesn't seem to be working. Does anyone have a link to a CentOS tutorial(I figured they would be the same) or can someone explain how to properly install it? Thanks

There is no binary package available for qt4.3.
You can try compile both qt4.3 and Pyqt4 from the source and install
It worked for me and I am able to run GNS3 on Centos5.

# Install dependancies
yum install python python-devel xorg-x11-proto-devel libXext-devel

# Install latest Qt4
cd /tmp
wget http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/Qt/qt...c-4.4.1.tar.gz

have you considered using the stand alone linux executible dynamips without the GNS3 gui, its a possible option as long as youre not afraid to use the CLI to start and connect your virt routers. just downloadd and run it no compiling and your router console by default is the terminal window you started it in.

What i do i keep a txt document on my desktop. inside is like a 4 line long linux command to properly start the router, set its instance number, ram, and bind certain interfaces to real linux ethernet devs or with udp thru local host to other VM instances. ive got 20 something of them in my script and run on my quad core very easily.

just make sure to read the README for examples

Hi, Thank you for guiding me,

As i already have been used to work on GNS3 GUI in Windows XP, i would prefer to use GUI in Linux too.

So please, can you guide me to install GSN3 GUI in either FedoraCore 4 or FedoraCore 6 or Cent OS 5 Please.....

I havent ever tried to get the GUI working in Linux, so beyond the normal configure, make, make install, etc I couldnt really help.

what seems to not work, any errors - did it fully compile?

Hi,
I tried doing the way suggested in the above post and download file "qt-x11-opensource-src-4.4.1.tar.gz" from http://wftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/Qt/qt...c-4.4.1.tar.gz and followed the guidance and next executed the command "./configure -nomake examples -nomake demos -qt-gif -no-exceptions -debug -qt3support" which executed without any error.
But when i run the next provided command "gmake" the command never completed its execution and i was watching it for more than 5-6 hours, but the command didn't complete its execution and was still going on and on........i went sick and shut down my computer.......I wounder why the command gmake kept on continuing execution and didn't stop even after 5-6 hours of execution....however there were no error shown...........

Hope you get some idea to help me out, i didnt these things on CentsOS 5.

Many Thanks for the link.
However, I started using Ubuntu, GNS3 will be installed in just few click and not more than 5mins.


However, I appreciate your kindness on providing the link.
