Unhappy MounaRM step 3

Hi there,

I've been following all of MounaRM's steps (thanks btw)
But when I got to step 3, I did this "open /home/andreia/ns-allinone-2.35/otcl-1.14/Makefile.in"
This appears: "Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console"

Please help me, what should I do?

# 49 .

"open /home/andreia/ns-allinone-2.35/otcl-1.14/Makefile.in" means :

$ cd ns-allinone-2.35/otcl-1.14/ && gedit Makefile.in
... where you of course can use your preferred editor instead of gedit.

P.S. : `open' is not a command. Is a description of "what to do".

As knudfl said, open is not a command , you just open the file , or do it with a command :
Code:
cd /home/andreia/ns-allinone-2.35/otcl-1.14/
gedit Makefile.in

Post #55 , @htet htet : Welcome to LQ.

The prerequisites for ns2 : You will have to update the package list ...
1) $ sudo apt-get update
2) $ sudo apt-get install g++ g++-4.4 autoconf automake libtool libxmu-dev patch xgraph

.. And for ns-2.31 / Ubuntu 12.10 - i686 : See post #47 here ..
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...532/page4.html

Using : $ cd ns-allinone-2.31/ && export CC=gcc41 CXX=g++41 && ./install

g++41-compat https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B7S2...jN2M2MGU4/edit

@@@@@@@

dpkg: error processing gcc41-compat-4.1.2-ubuntu1210_i386.deb (--install):
cannot access archive: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing g++41-compat-4.1.2_i386.deb (--install):

Errors were encountered while processing:

The first command is always $ pwd
.. to decide your location. Which could be /home/name/ or /home/name/Docoments/ ?

So you must go to the directory where you have the downloaded files.
Like $ cd Desktop/
Or $ cd Downloads/
.. First then you can do ..
$ sudo dpkg -i gcc41-compat-4.1.2-ubuntu1210_i386.deb g++41-compat-4.1.2_i386.deb

Dear knudfl,
i'm really thankful for ur reply.i have still error " tcl8.3.2 configuration failed! Exiting ..." when i'm running the following command
$ cd ns-allinone-2.31/ && export CC=gcc41 CXX=g++41 && ./install

And the output from the command $ uname -m is i686.

i have already downloaded a ns2.31_fhmip.patch and then tried your post #2 and # 17.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...s2-4175461377/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...924/page2.html

bash: ns2.31_fhmip.patch: No such file or directory

thanks for ur patience and sorry to trouble you.
please kindly advise me to solve that errors.

with regards,
ms. thiri

# 59 .

First : Hit the `Edit' button and shorten the long lines with @@@.
( Not everybody uses a 24" or 27" monitor.)
Nice readable text : More chance that you will get an answer.


Quote:
configure: error: installation or configuration problem:
C compiler cannot create executables.
Not easy to know ?
What's the output from the command $ uname -m <Enter>
