Problem in installing NS2 in fedora 5

I have Installed Fedora 5 in my system, I need to Install Network Simulator NS2. When I tryed to install it an error occurs that is TCL Error.... So that i couldn't install it. I have installed all the components such as gcc...etc.. still i couldn't install it..
I have tried with 3 versions of NS2(NS2 2.7, Ns2 2.8, and NS2 2.9) still nothing works. the same error continues.. can any one suggest the method of installing NS2 in Fedora 5.

I would recommend to install Tcl/Tk-8.0 using yum.
And then install NS2 without any problems.

You can also try the NS2 allinone package, it is much easier to install.

I have installed NS-2.30 in Fedora Core 5.
After i run ./install, I inserted export command in file bashrc, the export command are

export PATH=/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tcl8.4.13/unix:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tk8.4.13/unix:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tk8.4.13/unix:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tcl8.4.13/unix:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tk8.4.13/unix:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/otcl-1.12:/root/ns-allinone-2.30/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export TCL_LIBRARY=/root/ns-allinone-2.30/tcl8.4.13/library:$TCL_LIBRARY

After that
I run ./validate, I had some error. The error are

validate overall report: some tests failed:
to re-run a specific test, cd tcl/test; ./test-all-TEST-NAME
Notice that some tests in webcache will fail on freebsd when -O is turned on.
This is due to some event reordering, which will disappear when -g is turned on

How I can fix this error?

thank you

This is a known issue in NS2 fc5 install and is reported on the Nsnam site
see the topic "Validating your build"
Unless you specifically want to work on RED protocol, the package should work fine
