ns-2.34 problem executing 'nam' on ubuntu 9.10


I successfully installed and validate ns-allinone-2.34 network simulator on ubuntu-9.10. I then tried to run simple tcl code and ended up on the following error. I couldn't move ahead from there. What should I do to make 'nam(version 1.14)' work on my ubuntu 9.10???? Thanks in advance


ns: finish: couldn't execute "nam": no such file or directory
while executing
"exec nam out.nam &"
(procedure "finish" line 7)
invoked from within
"finish"


Here is the code I tried to run (for reference):

#Create a simulator object
set ns [new Simulator]
#Define different colors for data flows (for NAM)
$ns color 1 Blue
$ns color 2 Red
#Open the NAM trace file
set nf [open out.nam w]
$ns namtrace-all $nf
#Define a 'finish' procedure
proc finish {} {
global ns nf
$ns flush-trace
#Close the NAM trace file
close $nf
#Execute NAM on the trace file
exec nam out.nam &
exit 0
}

#Create four nodes
set n0 [$ns node]
set n1 [$ns node]
set n2 [$ns node]
set n3 [$ns node]
#Create links between the nodes
$ns duplex-link $n0 $n2 2Mb 10ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n1 $n2 2Mb 10ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n2 $n3 1.7Mb 20ms DropTail
#Set Queue Size of link (n2-n3) to 10
$ns queue-limit $n2 $n3 10
#Give node position (for NAM)
$ns duplex-link-op $n0 $n2 orient right-down
$ns duplex-link-op $n1 $n2 orient right-up
$ns duplex-link-op $n2 $n3 orient right
#Monitor the queue for link (n2-n3). (for NAM)
$ns duplex-link-op $n2 $n3 queuePos 0.5
#Setup a TCP connection
set tcp [new Agent/TCP]
$tcp set class_ 2
$ns attach-agent $n0 $tcp
set sink [new Agent/TCPSink]
$ns attach-agent $n3 $sink
$ns connect $tcp $sink
$tcp set fid_ 1
#Setup a FTP over TCP connection
set ftp [new Application/FTP]
$ftp attach-agent $tcp
$ftp set type_ FTP
#Setup a UDP connection
set udp [new Agent/UDP]
$ns attach-agent $n1 $udp
set null [new Agent/Null]
$ns attach-agent $n3 $null
$ns connect $udp $null
$udp set fid_ 2
#Setup a CBR over UDP connection
set cbr [new Application/Traffic/CBR]
$cbr attach-agent $udp
$cbr set type_ CBR
$cbr set packet_size_ 1000
$cbr set rate_ 1mb
$cbr set random_ false
#Schedule events for the CBR and FTP agents
$ns at 0.1 "$cbr start"
$ns at 1.0 "$ftp start"
$ns at 4.0 "$ftp stop"
$ns at 4.5 "$cbr stop"
#Detach tcp and sink agents (not really necessary)
$ns at 4.5 "$ns detach-agent $n0 $tcp ; $ns detach-agent $n3 $sink"
#Call the finish procedure after 5 seconds of simulation time
$ns at 5.0 "finish"
#Print CBR packet size and interval
puts "CBR packet size = [$cbr set packet_size_]"
puts "CBR interval = [$cbr set interval_]"
#Run the simulation
ns run


By the way I googled and got some suggestions like: adding 'nam' directory to environment. I did this as follow but it didn't work:
I added:
export PATH=$PATH:/home/elias/ns-allinone-2.34/nam-1.14
to /etc/profile (>sudo gedit /etc/profile)

Welcome to LQ.

The most easy way to have a 'nam' in your path is :
cd ns-allinone-2.34/nam-1.14/
sudo make install

Which will do one thing: Copying the executable nam to /usr/local/bin/.
.. Then you have it in a system path.

( The same is valid for ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/ ,
to get /usr/local/bin/ns ).

Error when executing a tcl file in ns-2.29

Hello knudfl ,

I installed Ns-2.29 with Nist mobility Package in ubuntu 9.10.
the ./install and ./validate were successful.
But when I want to test an example (ns example1a.tcl) I got the same error like ElijahJ

ns: finish: couldn't execute "nam": no such file or directory
while executing
"exec nam out.nam &"
(procedure "finish" line 7)
invoked from within
"finish"

I tried what you said but it doesn't work !! It seems like nam is not installed or what ?

root@charifa-laptop:~/Bureau/Install2/ns-allinone-2.29/nam-1.11# make install
/usr/bin/install -c -m 555 -o bin -g bin nam /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install: impossible d'évaluer «nam»: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
make: *** [install] Erreur 1

Can you help me plz ,
thanks a lot,

Nam is a separate application : Any nam can be used.
The best version is 1.14 : Please see post #4 here ...
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...04-a-842109/#4

Unpack nam-1.14.<arch>.tar.gz, and copy 'nam' to /usr/local/bin/
... Then you have nam in a system PATH.

Hi Riaz, #5
I don't know whether you have got my invitation mail. Anyway I thing I will be able to say the
steps to install mobiwan patch in ns-2.33.
First keep the patch file in the folder ns-2.33 within ns-allinone-2.33
then go to that folder ie cd ns-allinone-2.33/ns-2.33
write the command: "patch -p1 < ns-233-mobiwan-1.patch"
write the command: ./configure
write the command: make clean
write the command: make

that's all
then run the simple tcl script.

Post #8, @shama123 : Welcome to LQ.
Quote:
exec nam-1.14 out.nam &
exit 0
Looks like a home made tcl script.

Just edit "exec nam-1.14 out.nam &" to :
exec nam out.nam &

... and the unknown tcl script may work : If you have a usable 'nam'.

# 10 .

OK. No nam.

There are nam packages for Fedora. Which Fedora ?
Please show the outputs from these commands :
a) uname -m
b) cat /etc/redhat-release

Thumbs up My nam is now working

Thank you very much for your reply. I was removed my ns-allinone-2.34 folder and re-installed it. Now all are working perfectly. I think previously my nam is not installed correctly. I given the path of nam wrongly in .bashrc file. Now all are good. Thanx all!!!
