Kindly advise for the same.
Waiting for your reply.

so I have Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS and 3.2.0-37-generic kernel. the default gcc is 4.6.3 I think it should work for you too.

Welcome to LQ.

None of the default compilers can be used for ns-2.28, dated year 2005.
(The default compilers are g++-4.4, g++-4.5, g++-4.6 ( 4.6 is the system compiler.))
Also : No old Ubuntu compilers will work.

Please use 'gcc41-compat-4.1.2-ubuntu1210_i386.deb'
And 'g++41-compat-4.1.2_i386.deb'

The install instructions for ns-allinone-2.28 are here, post # 15 , 1) .. 6)
( The text about post # 3 can be ignored.
Not valid when both patches, ns228-gcc40.patch, ns-2.28-gcc410.patch are used.)
