Compiling and patching qemu in Fedora14

Reference material:

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

There’s a slight change in the dependency files.

Anyway here’s what I did:

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

tar xvzf qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz

This statement means to extract verbosely with gzip on filename qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz.

cd qemu-0.11.0

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

patch -pl -i qemu-0.11.0-olive.patch

This means to patch the file and ignore white space and numbers.

You will need zlib-devel, ncurses, libpcap, and SDL library files to do the ./configure

yum install zlib-devel

yum install libpcap-devel

yum install ncurses-devel

yum install SDL-devel

Take note SDL must be capitalized!

./configure –target-list=i386-softmmu

make

make install
