Nam Extended : The install instructions ..
http://www.grid.unina.it/grid/Extend...ll_Instruction
> "remove the nam-1.0a11 directory"
... And you can only do that, when you have ns-allinone-2.1b8a.
( The old "nam ext" requires those old files { tcl tk otcl tclcl } to build.
( None of the ns-allinone-2.1b8a files can be build on a contemporary OS.))

Solution : Use the binary ext-nam(.gz) :
1) wget http://www.grid.unina.it/grid/Extend...oad/ext-nam.gz
2) gunzip ext-nam.gz
3) chmod +x ext-nam
4) sudo cp ext-nam /usr/local/bin/
5) sudo dpkg -i libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-27_i386.deb
http://archive.debian.org/debian/poo....4-27_i386.deb
( http://archive.debian.net/etch/i386/...bc2.2/download )
... Now you can type 'ext-nam', and the nam GUI will open.

No. Just do 'sudo cp ext-nam /usr/local/bin/'. See post #2.

Nam and ext-nam are separate applications.
A specific nam version is not related to a specfic verson of ns2.

Any nam can be used together with all versions of ns-2.xx.
The prefered nam for all ns-2.xx : nam-1.14, because it's mostly static.
A "static" nam will work OK also on an OS with no ns2 or tcl,tk.
And the location of 'nam' should also be /usr/local/bin/.
Which is what you get with :
cd ns-allinone-2.35/nam-1.15/ && sudo make install

.
