Install GNS3 1.0 on Fedora

Recently started to play around with the new GN3 1.0 release on my Fedora 20 laptop. Just a quick guide to installing since the official notes only seem to mention apt/debian. On a side note the new 1.0 releases are starting to look awesome already :)

Install dependencies (updated for Beta 1)

sudo yum install git python3-devel python-pip python3-setuptool python3-PyQt4 python3-zmq python3-tornado python-netifaces

Grab iouyap and move to bin

wget http://cznic.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gns-3/Tools/iouyap.tar.gz
tar xzf iouyap.tar.gz
sudo mv iouyap /usr/local/bin/

No we have all the dependencies sorted we can grab the gui, server software and dynamips to get installed.

git clone https://github.com/GNS3/gns3-gui
git clone https://github.com/GNS3/gns3-server
git clone https://github.com/GNS3/dynamips

Now lets install

cd gns3-gui
sudo python3 setup.py install
cd ../gns3-server
sudo python3 setup.py install
cd ../dynamips
sudo make install

Start gns3 with gns3 job done :)
Then for all future updates to the alpha etc just rerun the git clone and install the new updates
