Easiest way to install GNS3 1.3.9 on Kali Linux 2.0, Debian 8 and Ubuntu 15.04

Gns3 1.3.9 has been released, which fixes 3 major issues found in version 1.3.8:

  1. Fixed startup crash on Windows 32-bit systems.
  2. Caught an exception when trying to start Wireshark.
  3. Backport: Fixed migration of cloud interfaces.
  4. Backport: Removed the code to delete the IOS router instance file.

To make Gns3 stable, the GNS3 team is working smarter and harder every day. Gns3 is a graphical network simulator that can simulate complex networks and is essential for anyone learning certification from CCCC to CCIE level. Each new version has new additions and improvements.

I have previously written about how to install Gns3 on Kali Linux and Debian. Today, I will write an article on how to install Gns3 1.3.9 on Kali Linux 2.0, Debian 8 and Latest ubuntu.

This article will be used on other new versions of Gns3, and I will release updates when the new version is released. Gns3 on Linux comes with 7 components that we will build one by one.

Dynamips 0.2.14
gns3 gui 1.3.9
gns3 server 1.3.9
 initparser
iouyap 0.95
ubridge 0.9.0
vpcs 0.6.1

The process is the same for three different distributions, but for Kali Linux 2.0 you must place the correct list of repositories. On your Kali sana 2.0, make sure to put this repository in your source.list.
Note: This only applies to Kali Linux 2.0. Paste the following into your terminal.

cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
# Regular Repositories
deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
# Source repositories
deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
EOF
