Welcome to LQ.

I don't remember that I have ever experienced those outputs. (Errors ?)

The build procedure is :
$ sudo apt-get install \
g++ g++-4.4 autoconf automake libtool patch libxmu-dev xgraph

$ tar xvf ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsna...allinone-2.34/
$ cd ns-allinone-2.34/
$ export CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 && ./install

← #3 .

`ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz“ :
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsna...allinone-2.34/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nsna...ar.gz/download

* If the build of ns-allinone-2.34 fails :
Please show all your commands.
* So far you have also not shown any errors :
Please tell what's failing.

Post #1 : »failed to create symbolic link `ns'«
... actually indicates that the executable 'ns' was created OK.
