Maintaining a local git repository on a portable disk image file or partition

Posted December 12, 2010 at 12:04 by wyldckat

Here's the scenario: You need the latest OpenFOAM 1.7.x git version, but your Linux machine is stranded on a deserted lab without access to the internet or to any other machine that does have access to the internet. The only machine with internet access that you have access to, is on some other place in the world and on top of that, uses Windows for an operating system.

Posted September 26, 2010 at 10:35 by wyldckat
Updated April 21, 2011 at 21:08 by wyldckat (Added 4th version of the scripts)
Tags gcc, openfoam

This blog post is meant to centralize my efforts for providing gcc build scripts to the OpenFOAM community. It provides build scripts for gcc 4.3.x, 4.4.x and 4.5.x series.

NOTE: If you don't have internet on the computer where you want to run this script, you can still run these scripts, because they will provide you with instructions on which files to download and where to place them!
