I need install on my redhat 7.0 the ns2 (network simulator
http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/ns-build.html). I would like to install in
getting the pieces I need.
This software needs several packages (ex. tcl/tk 8.3.2, otcl).
I have some of this package in my redhat distr (ex. tcl/tk), but the version
shown by GnomeRPM is 8.2(?). Checking the /usr dierctorie I find tcl-8.3.
1. the information shown by GnomeRPM is wrong?
2. how can I update the tcl/tk package without having an RPM distribution
(it's enough decompress, make, make install)?
3.about the other packeges (ex. otcl), could you give me suggestion (ex. is
better decompress them in a tmp subfolder and then give the make command or
put them in the final directorie and give the make command)?
I excuse for the not so clear questions, but I don't have a long experience
in the linux world.
Thanks to all who want to help me
