Error: Meta size 4064 too large (max = 1000)

Error: Meta size 4064 too large (max = 1000)

When using Mannasim Simulator for ns2, you may encounter this error when you are trying to run a tcl file with LEACH protocol. Here is a small workaround for the solution.

To install mannasim, please go here.

To overcome the above error, open the file
~ns-2.35/common/packet.h
and change the following line

struct hdr_rca {
       int msg_type_;
       char meta_[1000];

to

struct hdr_rca {
       int msg_type_;
       char meta_[5000];

Since I get 4064 as meta size, i changed it to 5000, if you get more than 4064, then accordingly you can increase the meta size and compile it. 

Here is the important step to compile 

~ns-2.35 $] ./configure --with-tcl-ver=8.5
~ns-2.35 $] make

Sometimes simply typing make will compile, but the .object files would not be created. So use the above two steps.

Here is the screenshot.
