I am installing olsrd for one of my project on ad-hoc network and not able to proceed further due to the following error:-

yuvraj@yuvi-PC ~/olsrd-0.6.8 $ make
[BISON] src/cfgparser/oparse.c
/bin/sh: 1: bison: not found
make: *** [src/cfgparser/oparse.c] Error 127

    Can you post a link to a source tarball download or a SCM checkout URL? – Karl Richter Apr 9 '15 at 0:20

Please do:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall bison libbison-dev flex libfl-dev
cd ~/olsrd-0.6.8
make clean
sudo make install

You need to install the package bison.

  • I installed the package already. I am still getting this error. – YUVRAJ Apr 8 '15 at 20:18

    Do you really still get the error bison: not found or just a similar one? – Florian Diesch Apr 8 '15 at 20:41
