  7. Your instructions are ambiguous, the title says "Installing NS-2.31", first step says "Download ns-allinnone-2.34", 4th instruction says "Open terminal and type cd ns2/ns-allinone-2.31"..

    I am confused!? are these instructions are for ns-2.31 or ns-2.34!?

      i have tried to installed ns in the directory. n then this is the result :


      Ns-allinone package has been installed successfully.
      Here are the installation places:
      tcl8.4.14: /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/{bin,include,lib}
      tk8.4.14: /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/{bin,include,lib}

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Please put /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/bin:/home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/unix:/home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/tk8.4.14/unix
      into your PATH environment; so that you'll be able to run itm/tclsh/wish/xgraph.

      IMPORTANT NOTICES:

      (1) You MUST put /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/otcl-1.13, /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/lib,
      into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
      If it complains about X libraries, add path to your X libraries
      into LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
      If you are using csh, you can set it like:
      setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      If you are using sh, you can set it like:
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=

      (2) You MUST put /home/nurhay/Documents/ns-allinone-2.31/tcl8.4.14/library into your TCL_LIBRARY environmental
      variable. Otherwise ns/nam will complain during startup.


      After these steps, you can now run the ns validation suite with
      cd ns-2.31; ./validate

      For trouble shooting, please first read ns problems page
      http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/ns-problems.html. Also search the ns mailing list archive
      for related posts.
