ns2.29 installation in ubuntu
I have successfully installed ns-2.29 on ubuntu and even patched in mannasim. the "make file" of ns2 is sucessful as well.

The problem arises, whenever i try to run a tcl file.. eg: example1.tcl
it gives an error regarding nam. I have installed nam-1.11 and configured it too.

It is however unable to open the graphical window. Moreover, no trace files are created, nor any output is found in "nam.out"

Anyone who can guide me, please ? !!

Welcome to LQ. .. .. :) ..

Assume ns-allinone-2.29.3.tar.gz :
The only one that works with mannasim.

Creating a usable nam :
cd ns-allinone-2.29/tk8.4.11/
patch -p0 < tk-8.4-lastevent.patch
... and then run ./install again.

Not all files <example>.tcl will create ' nam.out '.
Please provide a link to the code "example1.tcl".

Please also read other LQ threads tagged ns2 , ns229 , mannasim.
Example : LQ Search >>> 'Tag Name' = mannasim
