Welcome to LQ!

You miss GCC, in fact you miss entire GNU toolchain. Can't tell you where to get these for FC5. Even FC6 is no longer supported. Do you have all install disks? Would you consider a newer, supported version of Linux?

azamjiva 01-14-2008 02:40 PM

Linux version
 
ok then which Linux version is supportable to install ns package ?

NS2 can be installed in any Linux, no problem here. With a newer, supported Linux it is much easier. Get yourself Fedora 8 and use Fedora package management to install whatever software you desire. There's no need to compile it by yourself. Make sure your computer meets hardware requirements before downloading an ISO.

nothing to do with networking. moved to Linux - Newbie.

steps to install ns2 in fedora
 
you can follow these steps in any linux environment

INSTALLING NS-2 ON FEDORA 8

STEP 1

From terminal login as super user and do the following.(internet must also be connected in order to install the package dependencies.

yum install autoconf
yum install automake
yum install gcc-c++
yum install libX11-devel
yum install xorg-x11-proto-devel
yum install libXt-devel
And for nam installation (optional):
yum install libXmu-devel

STEP 2

From terminal go to the folder where the ns-allinone patch is placed and type the following to extract
$ tar -xzf ns-allinone-2.31.tar.gz
$ cd ns-allinone-2.29
$. /install

STEP 3

Now go to /etc folder and type

gedit ~/.bashrc

Add the following lines to the end of it. Remember replace "/your/path" by something like "/home/kazim". And accordingly also change the version numbers. This is for ns 2.31.

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH
OTCL_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/otcl-1.13
NS2_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/lib
X11_LIB=/usr/X11R6/lib
USR_LOCAL_LIB=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$OTCL_LIB:$NS2_LIB:$X11_LIB:$USR_LOCAL_LIB

# TCL_LIBRARY
TCL_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/library
USR_LIB=/usr/lib
export TCL_LIBRARY=$TCL_LIB:$USR_LIB

# PATH
XGRAPH=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/bin:/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/unix:/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tk8.4.14/unix
NS=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/ns-2.31/
NAM=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/nam-1.13/
PATH=$PATH:$XGRAPH:$NS:$NAM

Let it take effect immediately

source ~/.bashrc



Note: the step described above is important; otherwise, you cannot run ns successfully.
or you can restart your X windows.i.e. logout and then login, or reboot your system, to make it work.)

Now, the installation has been completed. If you try:
$ ns

Then a "%" will appear on the screen.type "exit" to quit the mode and back to "$"


If you miss out step 1 you may get the following errors

Build XGraph-12.1
============================================================
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking if malloc debugging is wanted... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Can not create xgraph; But xgraph is an optional package, continuing...

If you miss step 3

At the prompt when you type ns you will get
Ns command not found

salady86 03-15-2008 06:40 AM

i followed the steps exactly as mentioned below....
STEP 2

From terminal go to the folder where the ns-allinone patch is placed and type the following to extract
$ tar -xzf ns-allinone-2.31.tar.gz
$ cd ns-allinone-2.29
$. /install

STEP 3

Now go to /etc folder and type

gedit ~/.bashrc

Add the following lines to the end of it. Remember replace "/your/path" by something like "/home/kazim". And accordingly also change the version numbers. This is for ns 2.31.

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH
OTCL_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/otcl-1.13
NS2_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/lib
X11_LIB=/usr/X11R6/lib
USR_LOCAL_LIB=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$OTCL_LIB:$NS2_LIB:$X11_LIB:$USR_LOCAL_LIB

# TCL_LIBRARY
TCL_LIB=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/library
USR_LIB=/usr/lib
export TCL_LIBRARY=$TCL_LIB:$USR_LIB

# PATH
XGRAPH=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/bin:/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/unix:/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/tk8.4.14/unix
NS=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/ns-2.31/
NAM=/your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/nam-1.13/
PATH=$PATH:$XGRAPH:$NS:$NAM

then i gave
source ~/.bashrc

i then typed ns
bash: ns: command not found....

whats wrong????please help..i have tried almost 10 times the same thing..but not succesful...sumone help!!!!!!1

acid_kewpie 03-15-2008 07:48 AM

well at that level, you have a path issue potentially. it looks like the binary should be in /your/path/ns-allinone-2.31/ns-2.31/ is it?

i gave gedit ~/.bashrc

then added the following lines

export PATH

TCL_LIBRARY=$TCL_LIBRARY:/home/salady/ns2new/ns-2.31/tcl8.4.14/library
export TCL_LIBRARY

then gave source ~/.bashrc

then tried ns
bash:ns command not found...

wat to do?

acid_kewpie 03-15-2008 02:00 PM

well, as above, is the ns binary actually there?

well actually..what do you mean by the ns binary??? im new to linux...please explain clearly

acid_kewpie 03-16-2008 05:33 AM

ok, just show us what is in the /home/salady/ns2new/ns-2.31/bin directory. that's where the "ns" program should be i assume.

kazim425 03-17-2008 06:07 AM

gedit ~/.bashrc

copy and paste this

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH

NAM=/home/salady/ns2new/nam-1.13/
PATH=$PATH:$XGRAPH:$NS:$NAM

source ~/.bashrc
restart system
if still it says no ns found

then just run ./install again when installation completes try ns from propmt

if still there is problem send me the screenshots of the steps you do
