<-- Related issues to ParaView with OpenFOAM - Fixes and solutions

This blog post is for those users who want to build ParaView 3.8.0 that comes with OpenFOAM's ThirdParty, version 1.7.0/1/x.


In case you don't know, ParaView 3.8.0 that comes with OpenFOAM 1.7.0/1, doesn't build very well with Qt 4.7. So, in case your system's Qt is already using 4.7, then you should play safe and follow the instructions in this blog post. If you don't know which version it has,...

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.

Trying to include glibc in my build-gcc scripts...

Updated August 27, 2011 at 13:37 by wyldckat (fixed typos...)

If you don't know what I mean by build-gcc, read this first: Automated scripts for building gcc 4.4.x and 4.5.x for using with OpenFOAM 1.7 series


Sometime ago, a problem was detected when using one of my build-gcc scripts (see OpenFoam 1.7.0 on RHEL 4.6 post #3) about no valid libc.so being found during the build procedure. This was later fixed by adding the proper lib folder path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH (read post #9 on that thread).
