Hello,

Here are the steps to set up PIX on Linux.

1 - Download Pemu and put it in the same directory as qemuwrapper.py.

2 - Add your PIX OS image (e.g. pix722.bin) in GNS3's Qemu Preferences (PIX tab). Configure the settings. Save.

3 - Drag & Drop your PIX firewall on the scene. Start it and console to it.

This should work. Also note there is an issue with VirtualBox API that conflicts with Qemu/Pemu which may hangs when you start your device. The solution for now is not uninstall VirtualBox or comment the following code in gns3.pyw:

Code:
try:
    from vboxapi import VirtualBoxManager
    g_VBoxmgr = VirtualBoxManager(None, None)
    VBOXVER_MAJOR = int(g_VBoxmgr.vbox.version.split('.')[0])
    VBOXVER_MINOR = int(g_VBoxmgr.vbox.version.split('.')[1])
    VBOXVER_STR = g_VBoxmgr.vbox.version
    VBOXVER_FLOAT = float(str(VBOXVER_MAJOR)+'.'+str(VBOXVER_MINOR))
except:
    print "WARNING: vboxapi module cannot be loaded ! You can proceed, but VirtualBox functionality will not be locally available."
    g_VBoxmgr = 0
    VBOXVER_MAJOR = 0
    VBOXVER_MINOR = 0


GNS3 0.8.2 will provide an option to deactivate VirtualBox support. Allowing Qemu to work.

Cheers,
