Installation of ns2.34 on ubuntu10.10

Procedure:
Step1: Download the ns-allinone-2.34 from this site:
http://bit.ly/downloadns

Step2: Place the ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz package in your home
folder(/home/micman in my case). Right click the package and
extract the contents in the same folder.

Step3: Next, open the Terminal(Applications–>Accessories–>Terminal)

Step4: Change to ns-allinone2.34 directory
$ cd /home/buddharaj/ns-allinone-2.34
Step5: First install all the dependencies
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev gcc-4.3

Edit Makefile.in found at this location ns-allinone-2.34/otcl-1.13/Makefile.in as
follows:
Find the line that says:
CC= @CC@
and change it to:
CC= gcc-4.3

Step 6: Begin ns2.34 installation
$ sudo su
# ./install
Step 7: Once the installation is successful i.e without any errors, we need to
add the path information to the file ~/.bashrc
# gedit /home/micman/.bashrc
I remind you once again that micman is my username, replace it with your
username.

Step8: Append the following lines to the file ~/.bashrc
# LD_LIBRARY_PATH
OTCL_LIB=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/otcl-1.13
NS2_LIB=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/lib
X11_LIB=/usr/X11R6/lib
USR_LOCAL_LIB=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$OTCL_LIB:$NS2_LIB:$X11_LIB:$USR_LOCAL_LIB
# TCL_LIBRARY
TCL_LIB=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/tcl8.4.18/library
USR_LIB=/usr/lib
export TCL_LIBRARY=$TCL_LIB:$USR_LIB
# PATH
XGRAPH=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/bin:/home/micman/ns-allinone-
2.34/tcl8.4.18/unix:/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/tk8.4.18/unix
#the above two lines beginning from xgraph and ending with unix should come on the same line
NS=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/
NAM=/home/micman/ns-allinone-2.34/nam-1.14/
PATH=$PATH:$XGRAPH:$NS:$NAM

Step 9: Give command
root@ubuntu:~/ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34#./validate
it will take several minutes to complete the validation process.

After this simply quit the Terminal and open it again.

After this, type ns to see % and type nam to show the nam startup window.
This proves that your installation has been successful.
