NS installation problem
Tue, 10 Feb 1998 17:33:37 -0800
I am reposting the following message for help, which I posted yesterday
have not appear on the mailing list. Sorry if the message is duplicated.
Also, I heard there will be a ns tutorial session soon. Anybody knows
about that ?

I got the same problem before. The executable "ns.dyn" can be produced
if "make ns.dyn" is issued or "ns" can be produced "-static" is produced
from the Makefile and issue "make". If that does not work, you may want
to check where "libdl.so" file is located in your system. If it is not
under the default library directory, then it has to be specified in
I also encoutered a small problem in linking: tcl installs the file
in ...../lib/tcl8.0/ and make searches ....../lib/ for it. This gives
tclsh8.0 bin/tcl-expand.tcl tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl |
/dsg/dsg3/dylan/tclcl-1.0b5/tcl2c++ et_ns_lib >

Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following
This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly.
After I copied "init.tcl" from /dsg/dsg3/dylan/lib/tcl8.0/ to
/dsg/dsg3/dylan/lib/, the error message disappears.
Finally, I have a problem I still cannot figure out by myself. When I
type test-all, it gives the following output and stalled:
tahoe1 tahoe2 tahoe3 tahoe4 no_bug bug reno1 reno renoA reno2 reno3
reno4 reno4a reno5 telnet delayed phase phase1 phase2 timers stats
Running test tahoe1
Test output differs from reference output
Diagnose with: diff test-output/tahoe1.test test-output/tahoe1
Differences due to floating-point formatting are not significant.
Problems found with input data.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
