I'm trying to install ns-allinone-2.27 on Fedora Core 10. The GCC compiler which is already installed on this version of Fedora is 4.3.2, so I've installed gcc 3.2.3 to be able to compile ns-2.27. I've installed ns-allinone-2.33 and ns-allinone-2.28 with no problem. But for 2.27 i got this error msg:
make: *** No rule to make target 'VERSION', needed by 'gen/version.c'. Stop.
Ns make failed!
I've tracked the installation process, it can install everything successfully (TCL, TK, TCLC, ...), but when it comes to build ns-2.27, this error occurs. I've downloaded ns-allinone-2.27.tar.gz from http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/dist/
and I've extracted it with Linux command (tar zxvf ....). The directory "gen" includes the file version.c but it's empty. I've checked the same directory on ns-2.28 and the file contains "char version_string = "2.28"; ", so i also tried the same line of code as "char version_string = "2.27";" but the error still exists.
I need to install ns-2.27 to compile a specific packet.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
