A Text book for OMNeT++ (Learning OMNeT++)

Image
This post is for the nsnam.com readers particularly those who want to learn OMNeT++. As you aware, ns2 and OMNeT++ are two software that are freely distributed and available to academics for almost free of cost.

However, when dealing with the documentation, both suffers a set back. NS has a documentation and still researchers across the world have their own way of learning. And OMNeT++ has a proper documentation, that is very huge and takes times to understand.
Packt Publishing has published a book in OMNeT++ authored by Thomas Chamberlain
You may refer the following website for http://www.packtpub.com/

During the software customization in Fedora 20, I have selected all the softwares in GNOME Desktop. So I did not tried the following command. However, if you have installed Fedora 20 with default set of softwares, there here is the step to install all the developmental libraries.

$prompt] yum install tcl tk gcc-c++ libX11-devel libXt-devel libXmu-devel 

You need to change the file ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h file as specified below.

If you want to mount the entire directory, then from an IP, then
$] mount.cifs //192.168.1.1/D$  /mnt/windowserver -o username=admini…
