    In line number 137, change erase to this->erase
  • Step 10: Once installation is succeeded, you will get some path information
    Step 11: set the paths in the .profile file which is under the home directory (/home/pradeep/.profile)
  • as specified in the video, copy the PATH url and LD_LIBRARY_PATH URL and paste in the .profile file.
  • Step 12: Once the path information is set, run the command to test the path "source /home/pradeep/.profile) and see there should not be any errors
    Step 16: try ns and nam individually and see whether they are working
    when you type ns and type enter a % symbol indicates the installation is successful
    when you type nam and a network animation window pop up.
