how to install ns2 on fedora ?

i have installed ns 2.34 on fedora 9 in following way

1. untarred the file
2. run ./install
3. after the installation was successfull, i modified the environment variable file named ~/.bashrc
4. i ran ns and got % prompt and no GUI
5. then i exited from it and ran ./validate over it
6. That was also successfull

but whenever i run any tcl script in the examples provided with the software as
%ns vlan.tcl
i get an error message like :
Running in backward compatibility mode
Error while calling oldSim class

this error is same for many tcl scripts

is there anything wrong with the installation Process ?

Do not use fedora 9, it is too far out of date now.
Have you seen this howto (for f8, but should be similar) or others?

4. i ran ns and got % prompt and no GUI
That is what is supposed to happen. No gui expected.

%ns vlan.tcl
You need to run the command at the command prompt, not the ns prompt. vis:

$ ns vlan.tcl
