Installing GNS3 on opensuse 12.2

Hi guys, can you teach me how can I install gns3 on opensuse 64bit? Thanks! :slight_smile:

It’s here: software.opensuse.org: Search

FYI: if a package is not available through the repos you already have, go to software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 12.2 and search for it.

Thanks! Uhh, one question. What does a noarch package means?

it means “no architecture” restrictions…some packages are only for
32 bit computers, but a noarch is usable on (for example) 32 or 64 bit
computers, or on 386, 486, 586, or 686 intel chips or on AMD whatevers
or or or . . .

i’ve never heard of a “cisco image unpacker”, is that a MS-Windows
application??

have you tried this:

It is use to unpack the binary file of cisco router image. I saw it on a nugget about gns3. And yes, the nugget uses windows as its OS. But I suppose that there should be an unpacker for linux? I’ m not sure though.

the first hit on my list
http://www.sadikhov.com/forum/index.php?/topic/181810-unpacking-cisco-ios-image-gns3/

I just use the linux or windows unzip CLI. That is all the unpacker will
do."

the second http://forum.gns3.net/topic139-20.html


On Linux:

$ python unpack.py --format ASA7 asa724-k8.bin
