Prerequisites for compiling OMNeT++ from the source
There are optional prerequisites that you can build OMNeT++ with, but on Linux you also need to make sure you have the correct mandatory prerequisites in order for OMNeT++ to build.
There are three optional packages which can be used to build OMNeT++. They are as follows:
- MPI: This stands for message passing interface and is a message-passage library. This means that it is used for parallel programming that can be done across multiple machines with distribution memory. You may find this useful for OMNeT++ as it will allow you to speed up your simulations. Essentially, MPI will facilitate faster and more powerful simulations.
- PCAP: This stands for packet capture, and it allows packets that are travelling ...
