Problem in installing evalvid in ns 2.35. What is vbrTraceFile2


Greetings,

1) I've been trying installing evalvid in ns2.35 ubuntu 12.04 in many ways. including in http://www2.tkn.tu-berlin.de/research/evalvid/ and http://ru6.cti.gr/ru6/research-areas...rk-simulations but how do you know exactly that evalvid is installed in your ns2?

2) i keep countering the same problem when running tfrc_vbr_sample.tcl

Make RED trace variables
Evalvid-RA: Start making GOP and Frame trace files for 29 Rate variants
invalid command name "vbrTraceFile2"
while executing
"vbrTraceFile2 create _o5556 "
invoked from within
"catch "$className create $o $args" msg"
invoked from within
"if [catch "$className create $o $args" msg] {
if [string match "__FAILED_SHADOW_OBJECT_" $msg] {
delete $o
return ""
}
global errorInfo
error "class $..."
(procedure "new" line 3)
invoked from within
"new vbrTraceFile2"
invoked from within
"set trace_file [new vbrTraceFile2]"
(file "tfrc_vbr_simple.tcl" line 325)

what i have been missing? i appreciate any king of help. Thank you

Re #3.

The example `tfrc_vbr_sample.tcl' is not usable with a basic "evalvid".
`tfrc_vbr_sample.tcl' is for Evalvid-RA only.
And I don't think that's what you are using ? ?

Evalvid-RA http://www.scribd.com/doc/49179873/L...lvid-RA#scribd
"" Trace Driven Simulation of Rate Adaptive MPEG-4 VBR Video ""

( I have a copy of the original `LieKlaue07-Evalvid-RA.pdf',
... the old links to the original file don't exist any more.)

dear knudfl,

actually what i'm planning to do is to analyze video transmission in network simulator. i'm thinking that your sample in #2 is really helpful, so i'm going to continue with yours. But when i'm trying to run be_a01.tcl, i've got the following error in #3, i seems can't run 'myUDP'.
any suggestion from you will do, i'm still new at this and i need help from you, master.

thank you for your reply

Re #6.

"be_a01.tcl" is an EvalVid2 file.

My test :
Code:
$ ns-myevalvid2 be_a01.tcl
warning: no class variable Agent/myUDP::packetSize_

        see tcl-object.tcl in tclcl for info about this warning.

9.9689999999999994
warning: no class variable Tracefile::debug_

        see tcl-object.tcl in tclcl for info about this warning.

300 records
.... Which is the normal behavior.

dear knudfl,

there's a few question i'd like to ask

1) where can i get myevalvid2 patch? all the links i've found seems not working anymore.

2) what do i do after i download evalvid 2.7: http://www2.tkn.tu-berlin.de/researc...id-2.7.tar.bz2 . when i type 'make' there's following problem :
C mp4trace.c ...
mp4trace.c:4:27: fatal error: gpac/isomedia.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [mp4trace.o] Error 1

3) how to install precompiled binaries of evalvid?
http://www2.tkn.tu-berlin.de/researc....7-lin.tar.bz2

I'm glad to your reply, thank you.

Re #8.

Add 1) The "myevalvid2 patch" is for ns-2.28. Maybe ns-2.35 is possible ?
`myevalvid2_ns228-patching-2.tar.gz' :
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7S...ew?usp=sharing

Add 2) $ sudo apt-get install libgpac-dev

Add 3) Ref. http://www2.tkn.tu-berlin.de/researc....7-lin.tar.bz2
There are no "precompiled binaries" in `evalvid-2.7-lin.tar.bz2'.

You will have to show all the commands you did, before the errors appeared.

dear knudfl,

thank you for responding me so far.
i'm sorry for my incomplete explanation, actually i was trying to patch it in ns-2.35.
i'm going to follow your instruction in #11 so i'm googling your patch.
I've found your link http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on-4175445965/ and the explanation is pretty good but the problem is apparently your link is not working anymore. is there any newer link?

i'm working by myself for this project so i'm really grateful for your reply. thank you

dear master,
i've got the following problem while trying the command export CC=gcc41 CXX=g++41 && ./install

============================================================
* Build tcl8.4.5
============================================================
loading cache ./config.cache
checking whether to use symlinks for manpages... no
checking compression for manpages... no
checking for gcc... gcc-4.1
checking whether the C compiler (gcc-4.1 ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.
tcl8.3.2 configuration failed! Exiting ...
Tcl is not part of the ns project. Please see www.Scriptics.com
to see if they have a fix for your platform.

do you have any suggestion. i appreciate your reply
thank you

Re #14.

"gcc41" / gcc-4.1 : A tool not present on your OS cannot be used. Obviously.
Also : There is a misconception, a contradiction between "export gcc41",
and the answer you receive from the tcl8.4.5 configure : " ... gcc-4.1 " !


"export CC=gcc41 CXX=g++41" is an example.
Your Ubuntu OS is unknown.
Recommending the right gcc/g++ version 3.4.6 .. 4.1.2 : The OS must be specified.
a) Very important is the architecture : $ uname -m
b) And the exact version :
Code:
$ cat  /etc/issue
