Lightbulb How to set up ns2.1b9a on Ubuntu 10.04


Hi everyone,

Today, I debug and set up ns2.1b9a on Ubuntu10.04 successfully. Since 2.1b is a very old NS2 version, it has many limitations on Linux OS, so do not use any Ubuntu after 10.04. I have written a blog which is about how to install it. Hopefully, it is helpful to you. Here is the link: http://itantenna.blogspot.com/2011/1...untu-1004.html

And thanks very much for knudfl`s help.

After seeing posts about ns2 for such a long time, what is so special about it anyway?

I knew what it was, I was only curious what the big hype was. I guess it's something I will never be using then, since it's so old?

I think maybe it is because ns2 is open source and it is easy to study for the beginner, many developers are willing to contribute to it. But depending on different version, it always has some problems in configuration, installation and development. So this is why you see many discussions about it.

Most of the threads are from students, who got an assignment with ns2.

The latest stable is ns-2.34 (year 2009),
the current development version is ns-2.35-RC9. (2011.)
