Hi everyone,

I'm trying to setup NDNSim version 2. on a Server for more computing 
resource. The server is based on Ubuntu 14.04 and I'm not allowed to 
upgrade it. Unfortunately, it did not succeed in the compilation 
process. Version 2.4 compilation requires newer version of some 
dependencies which might not be satisfied with Ubuntu 14.04 and could 
not even pass through NS-3 wifi module compilation.

I have checked out the "remotes/origin/ndnSIM-v2" branch, and it almost 
got through, it failed at the step trying to link


./libns3-dev-ndnSIM-debug.so: Nicht definierter Verweis auf 
const*, std::string>, 
const*, std::string> > >, boost::regex_traits<char, 
boost::cpp_regex_traits<char> > >::match()'

--- which means that the linker has some issue when trying to link to 
the boost library.

I could set up NDNSim v1.0 on this Server without any problem, but I 
would really like to use the newer NDNSim version.

Any ideas on how to deal with this are much appreciated.

Best regards,
