Installing VNUML over Open Suse 10.2
There is a problem with vnuml 1.7.3 in Suse related with vnumlize functionality. The parser hangs after printing:
To avoid the problem, just type "crtl-C" afert the above message or better use the "-Z" option to disable vnumlize functionallity:
vnumlparser.pl -t simple.xml -v -u root -Z
This problem does not happen with vnuml 1.8 version.
- Install "bridge-utilities" which is available from Yast2
- Download uml-utilities from here and install them:
- Install the following perl modules from CPAN using this command:
- Download the latest version of vnuml parser from VNUML site and install it:
- Download root filesystem (root_fs_tutorial-0.4.1.bz2) from VNUML site and:
- Download guest kernel (linux-126.96.36.199-bs2-xt-1m.tar.bz2) from VNUML site and:
- Create ssh key:
- Installation is finished. Test simple.xml example to see if everything works:
rpm -i uml-utilities-20040406-35.i586.rpm
perl -MCPAN -e "install Net::Pcap; install Module::Build; install Net::IPv6Addr; force install NetAddr::IP"
Note: basic c/c++ development tools (gcc, make, etc) must be installed for this step to work.
tar xfvz vnuml_1.7.3.orig.tar.gz cd vnuml-1.7.3 ./configure --with-build_modules make make install (Note: answer "NO" if asked "Are you ready for manual configuration?")

Note: if you execute the example from a "root" session, you should add the option "-u root" at the end of the line. There are some pending bugs that prevent a simulation to work when executed as "vnuml" user (the default when you do not use -u option) from a root session.
