Installing NS-2.35 in Fedora 17

Download NS2.35 from this link. Copy the file to /home/yourhome (in my case it is, /home/pradeep/) Untar it using “ tar zxvf ns-allione-2.35.tar.gz ” (without quotes) “cd ns-allione-2.35/” (without quotes) “./install” (see the dot in the beginning) 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” Open the file using gedit “gedit /home/pradeep/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h” in line number 127, there will be a erase function, change it to this->erase and go to step 5. Once installation over, set the PATH and that’s it.
