sounds like the dev packages are missing...

I don't know Ubuntu very well, but you should have yum (Yellow dog Updater, Modified).


what's the output of:

sudo yum provides autoconf


sudo yum provides automake

both should say "installed" before you try again

sorry, to install them you would need to run

sudo yum install autoconf automake
or try "yumex" if you prefer a GUI ;)

ns2 (X)Ubuntu : is it ' ns-allinone-2.34 ' ? Please specify.

@phlyer : no yum in Ubuntu.

sudo apt-get install autoconf
.. will do.

Some further instructions here

And the "LQ Search" → 'Tag Name' = ns2.

@knudlf: it is ns-2.34.But while trying execute your command of installing the autoconf it is showing that-
Package autoconf is npt available but is referred to another package.This may mean that the package is missing or has been obsoleted or is only available from other source
E: package autoconf has no installation candidate

That's odd. I have ' autoconf ' installed on Ubuntu 9.10.
The default ' autoconf ' is version 2.64.
You should be able to see that in Synaptic.

May be try : sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install autoconf

Else please do ..
sudo apt-get install autoconf2.59

.. to see, what happens.
