Error: Ns make failed!


I am a final year engineering student and I am trying to install
ns-allinone-2.33 but I encounter this problem:

make: *** No rule to make target `VERSION', needed by `gen/version.c'.
Stop.
Ns make failed!

Can anyone help me clarify this problem?

Thank you.

You will have to clarify the problem...we can only help you solve it.

What part of the installation are you getting this error in? What version/distro of Linux? What have you done to get to that point, where the error occurs?

This page http://nsnam.isi.edu/nsnam/index.php/Troubleshooting contains the installation and troubleshooting guide. Have you looked at it?

I am installing it on Fedora 10.

I downloaded ns-allinone-2.33.tar.gz from http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=588643, and followed the instruction from http://nsnam.isi.edu/nsnam/index.php...nstalling_ns-2.

I typed in ./install and let it run until the error message appear.

I have read the website you sent me but it didn't help.

Hope I clarified my problem...

ns-allinone-2.33 will compile on a clean install of Fedora 10
with no errors. ( Usually.)

You will see that some of the 8 applications in ns-allinone
have VERSION files. If one is missing, or asked for in
another location, just create a VERSION text file.

The same problem

Hi,

I've faced the same problem with building ns-2.27. Did you find the solution?!

Thanks,

Thanks,
Please don't reopen old threads...this thread is TWO YEARS OLD. And did you read the responses to the original post? You are not providing details...things like version/distro of Linux, what you've done/tried, what error(s) you're getting, etc.

You may want to try a newer version of NS, since it's come a long way in two years.
