List of threads useful for building OpenFOAM and other Third Party tools

Updated December 8, 2013 at 10:37 by wyldckat (Added a few more links...)

Well, I've been meaning to this for a while now, so here goes - This a list of threads that could prove useful to new comers to OpenFOAM on how to build it as well as the Third Party tools.

Keep in mind:
  • That this isn't going to answer all of the questions you might have, but should help you with the more usual issues you might have.
  • The solution you seek might only come along after reading most of the thread each link points to.

Due to blog post constraint to 10000 bytes, I've been forced to split the post into various posts:

Other miscellaneous building topics:
MPI related issues:
Finally, a few links for starting to use OpenFOAM:

And that's it for now.

    Building ParaView 3.8 in a MacBook OS X 10.6.3

    I'm installing ParaView 3.8. I already downloaded and installed successfully (I HOPE!!!) QT 4.6. when building ParaView 3.8, i get the following error message:

    /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.6.0/include/QtCore/qglobal.h:288:2: error: #error "You are building a 64-bit application, but using a 32-bit version of Qt. Check your build configuration."

    I looked in the qglobal.h file (line 288).. but since i have close to no experience with code, i didn't know how to fix it.

    I also get the following error, and i don't know if they are related:

    /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.6.0/include/QtGui/qregion.h: In member function ‘OpaqueRgnHandle* QRegion::handle(bool) const’:
    /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.6.0/include/QtGui/qregion.h:160: error: ‘toQDRgn’ was not declared in this scope

    I'm new at the whole compiling/configuring/make install lingo... usually I just double click and wait for programs to install. If you could please help me!!!! Thanks.


    correction... i just learned that my macbook is a 64-bit.

    Unfortunately, Mac OS X is out of my expertise If Apple wasn't so uptight, I could have some experience running it in Virtual Machines, but Macs are as closed as gaming consoles Long Live Linux

    Anyway, you might want to head on to the thread for Macs: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...7-macos-x.html

    Best regards and good luck!
