There are so many missing files here and I don't know where to start with. Can someone please help?
Thank you.

Everybody's asking about NS2 tonight. Don't they give you any setup instructions as part of your first homework assignments?

Anyway, the error is saying that you need to install a C compiler before you can build NS2.

Use Red Hat For Ns2
 
hi friends ,

Use Redhat 9.0 for NS2 projects,

Because it have 1394 package, when comparing with

Ubento , fedrora , RH is best for NS2 .

Dear paulsm4,
The setup instructions I learned are very perfect without any further troubleshooting:(
I searched for gcc as below and shall I install all of them or which is the most precise package I should install?

Dear ambitlick,
I was taught to use NS2 in Fedora so I need to figure it out:(
Thank you for sharing:)
