Installing CCNx on Ubuntu OS

Here I would like to share how to install CCNx step-by-step. I am referring this site, but the java implementation gave me some issues that I have added the steps here, in case you run into those issues.

1. Ubuntu 12.10/higher/lower
2. Download version ccnx-0.8.0/or higher
3. Install the following packages:

$ sudo apt-get install ant autoconf libssl-dev libexpat1-dev libpcap-dev libecryptfs0 libxml2-utils 
automake gawk gcc g++ git-core pkg-config libpcre3-dev

$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk (for Ubuntu 12.04)
               (OR)      openjdk-7-jdk (for Ubuntu 12/10)

4. (optional) Create a software link for ccnx folder and put the original file inside "src" folder

$ mkdir src
$ mv ccnx-0.8.x src/
$ ln -s src/ccnx-0.8.x ccnx

5. Go inside ccnx folder

$ cd ccnx
$ ./configure
make install

This concludes the installation steps of CCNx. You can use the CCNx webpage for different experimentation. 

Thank you for taking time to read the post.
