Installing NS-2.35 in Fedora 17

  1. Download NS2.35 from this link. http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsnam/files/allinone/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz/download
  2. Copy the file to /home/yourhome (in my case it is, /home/pradeep/)
  3. Untar it using “tar zxvf ns-allione-2.35.tar.gz” (without quotes)
  4. “cd ns-allione-2.35/” (without quotes)
  5. “./install” (see the dot in the beginning)
  6. During the installation there may be a error in linkstate/ls.h, the location of ls.h is  “/home/pradeep/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h”
  7. Open the file using gedit “gedit /home/pradeep/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h”
  8. in line number 127, there will be a erase function, change it to this->erase and go to step 5.
  9. Once installation over, set the PATH and that’s it.
