We tool a first look at the Common Open Research Emulator (CORE) in a previous post. We used the VCORE virtual appliance that we downloaded from the CORE web site to evaluate CORE but we found some issues with missing software. Now, we will install CORE on an Ubuntu Linux system as the first step toward building a system with the complete components of CORE.
Installing the CORE Network Emulator on Ubuntu Linux is a simple process. The CORE Network Emulator also has documentation that describes the installation process, but it is missing a few steps.
In this post, I will describe the procedure I followed to install the basic packages of the CORE Network Emulator version 4.6 on Ubuntu Linux 13.04.
