    Please, help to install OMNeT++ on Knoppix!!!


    Hi all

    I need your help very urgently.

    I am a newbie at Knoppix, I need your help. In my computer I have Windows XP installed, however, I want to use a software (OMNeT++) and make different simulations from console, for this reason, I need to run on Linux OS.
    I have a Live-CD with knoppix. I boot my PC from CD and Knoppix is launched, in my directory I decompress OMNeT++ (in omnetpp sub-directory as it is mentioned after) software and these are the next instructions to be followed and I need some help:

    ##A sub-directory called omnetpp will be created which will contain the simulator
    files. You should now add the following lines to your startup file (.bashrc
    or .bash_profile if you're using bash; .profile if you're using some other
    sh-like shell):

    export PATH=$PATH:~/omnetpp/bin
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/omnetpp/lib

    For these variables to be included in the environment you will need to
    restart the shell before proceeding (logout and login again).##


    When is referring to the shell, is it simply the Console? I use Console to introduce the commands, where can I found the startup file to add these lines that are required to use OMNeT software?
    Please could you let me know how to modify startup file?
    Many thanks in advance.

    If you haven't solved this yet, the instructions are telling you to open the file in your home directory called .bashrc
    Do it like this, open a konsole/terminal and issue these commands(not as root).
    Code:
    cd ~
    Code:
    nano .bashrc
    copy and paste these lines into the editor.
    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:~/omnetpp/bin
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/omnetpp/lib
    Save your work and exit by typing Ctrl X, press Y to save.

    For these variables to be included in the environment you will need to
    restart the shell before proceeding (logout and login again).##
