Question urgent


I have installed fedora 11 on my system and now need to install ns-2.34 very urgently.
I downloaded ns allinone 2.34 tar.gz & put it on my desktop & extracted there. After that I ran terminal & changed to the ns-allinone-2.34 folder and gave ./install. It got installed. But I dont have any idea of path to give. So I gave validate & finally if I type ns in my terminal, I get bash: command not found.

What should I give as the path?
Please help me.

Firstly, a thread title of 'urgent' is not reccomended. Aside from not being a tantalising problem to the people who're most likely to help you, it's a bit arrogant.
You should have a thread title that describes the problem well enough that, at first skim of the forum index, experts in the relevant field would be able to identify your thread as one they can help in, and go in and help you. Most people who're not as bored as I am just ignore topics with titles 'urgent' or 'help me', since they don't stick out as an interesting problem.

You probably want to enter the directory you just extracted that tarball into and look for a readme, and read it. They often offer help on how to run the application.

Without knowing what ns is, it's difficult to offer more help, it might provide binaries with completely different names (as, say, imagemagick does).

Please use the title what it is meant for (a short description of the problem); it's definitely not urgent for us.

Try ./ns. If that does not help, run updatedb (as root) and next locate ns. Or use find

Sorry, I couldn't see anything about this that was "urgent" and sure enough, I finished my sandwich before I posted, and the world didn't blow up (or at least if it did, I didn't notice).

Try the trouble-shooting tips on this site (which I'm guessing you could have found as it was linked to from the location you most likely downloaded NS).

If you have difficulties setting all the path's,
the main ns-allinone components can be installed
to a system path.

Please see post # 13, about Fedora 11 here :

Don't come here and tell us to hurry...we volunteer our time. It may be **URGENT** for you, but not for us. If you want 24/7 **URGENT** support, go and pay for it via RedHat enterprise, SUSE Enterprise, or the like, and they'll be there for you.

Otherwise, since it's so **URGENT**, you can try to read the documentation that came with it, since it probably answers all your questions, you've already got it, and it'll **URGENTLY** fix your problem.

OK guys - I think myproject has the idea behind why "urgent" is a bad title. And I'm sure s/he'll never ever do it again...
