How to install NS 2-1b9a on fedora 8


Hi,
I'm trying to install ns2.1b9a on fedora 8, i've used the patch "ns21b9a.patch" but still there's an error while using 'make' that I can't seem to remove.. it says there's no "tools/random.o". Can anyone please tell me how to remove this error and install ns2.1b9a.

Thanks
beea

Welcome to LQ. .. .. ..

Please use ns-allinone-2.1b9a-gcc32.tar.gz
http://mohittahiliani.blogspot.com/2...-8-ubuntu.html
( Where the author by accident uses Fedora 8.)

And the compiler must be gcc / g++ version 3.3.6
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...p?p=4187015/#4
→ → posts # 4 ... # 7 : Fedora 13 - 14 should be preferred.

Requirements, Fedora : # yum install \
libX11-devel libXext-devel libXau-devel libXmu-devel gcc-c++

you DO KNOW that fedora 8 hit it's END OF LIFE years ago .
That there is and has been NO support for fedora 8 for years

fedora 8 is a unsupported and dead version , and that Fedora 14 is the current .



but if you insist on using a dead version !!!
a few things - yum WILL NOT WORK
unless you - by hand edit it to point to the historical archives yes historical .
see this

and pay attention to ALL the WARNINGS

once fedora 14 is installed and you have installed the dev tools
this should install almost everything
Code:
su -
yum groupinstall " Development Tools" "Development Librarys"
check the spelling from the "grouplist " ( i am NOT running fedora or CentOS right know )
Code:
yum grouplist
THEN you will NEED the legacy ( the very OLD gcc compiler )
Code:
yum search gcc
the 3.2 might NOT be in there but the 3.4 IS
then install it
---
yum install gcc31_??? something or "compact_gcc???"

then search this forum for the build instructions [b] there is a patch that MUST be used to build the very old ns-allinone-2.1b9a on a modern OS .

have fun
this is like getting a program built for windows 2000 or ME to build on windows 7

John, ns2.1b9a requires gcc / g++ version 3.3.6.

Please read post # 2 + the links.

Version 3.3.3 will not work, neither will 3.4.6.

And there are no available c++ / g++ "3.1" or "3.2", that will work in Fedora.

gcc 3.3.6 on fedora 14

thanks..i tried all the steps to install in fedora 8 but none of the gcc rpm's work..they each give an error. will gcc 3.3.6 be installed on fedora 14 cause i have very less time to complete my project, i don't want to risk any more time, should i install fedora 14 or an older version of Linux which already has a compatible gcc for ns-2.1b9a?

All Fedora, 8 ... 14 will work. ( I have tested with 8, 13, 14.)
Installing the gcc 3.3.6 packages : The install order is like here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...p?p=4187015/#4
1) gcc3.3-cpp, 2) gcc3.3, 3) gcc3.3-c++, etc.

Please read everything in that link very carefully !


You may or may not need the libstdc++ packages, depending on what's
already installed.
The command 'rpm -Uvh gcc3.3-c++-3.3.6-1pclos2007.i586.rpm : will tell,
if the libstdc++5-devel-3.3.6-1pclos2007.i586.rpm is required.
