NIST Net Installation on Fedora


Hello friends,
Am done trying to install NIST Net on my Fedora 10. On Fedora 7 either. Been looking for tweaks all over the Internet without a success. Steps seems very simple:
1. ./configure : Gives no Error
2: make : Here is where Errors start

I need your help friends, for whoever succeeded please give me tweaks that will make it happen.

Thanks in advance,
Makimaki.

Thanks man for the info.
Will you please tell me now which OS and what version of it that provides
good support for that NIST Net coz I just tried it Ubuntu still without success.
Am really desperate now for that software, need it to finish my thesis.

Thanks in advance,

providing a link to this software might help .
is it this ?
http://snad.ncsl.nist.gov/nistnet/
if so it is VERY OLD Software
" # Installing NIST Net Getting and installing the package (Last updated 20 July, 2005) "

and has only been tested on kernels up to 2.6.11
Quote:
Prerequisites: NIST Net version 2.0.12 should run on most versions of Linux available today. It has been tested on 2.0.xx (2.0.27 - 2.0.39), 2.2.xx (2.2.5 - 2.2.18), 2.4.xx (2.4.0 - 2.4.18) and 2.6.xx (up to around 2.6.11) level kernels. Some tweaking may be required for 2.1 or 2.3 kernels. It should compile with either "linux" libc headers or "glibc" libc headers, with the proviso that of course kernel files can't be compiled with glibc headers.
you will need a OS with a VERY OLD and insecure kernel
the 2.4 series kernel has a hole in it that one can sail an aircraft carrier through

from some reading it is very unlikely that this software will run on any new and modern Linux operating system

it looks like it was built for the ( now DEAD ) red hat 8 and 9 - from 2001

it is looking like in-order to get this to run an a modern system a FULL rewrite of the base code is needed

This https://lists.dit.upm.es/pipermail/v...st/000753.html
suggests to use the similar "Netem" instead :

Yes Mr. John,
I agree that the problem here is much on the Linux kernel. I have noticed that when I do kernel configuration changes (eg make menuconfig in the kernel) I always fail to rebuild it (with make command). Isn't it supposed to be Fedora's problem? Am just asking to get to know these kernel issues. Right now I have decided to put effort on using this netem as advised by Mr. knudfl.

the software on the link i found IS VERY OLD
and was built for a ( now dead) version of linux

if you NEED to use this software then install a very old and insecure OS like RH9
but the old ( and still supported RHEL4 ) might still be able to run this.
or the community version centos 4
http://www.centos.org/
