My system parameters: OpenSuSe 10.2 x64 SHELL : GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu) glibc v 2.5-25

I have StarCD-3.26 , StarCD-4.00 and StarCD-4.02 When i run solver star 3.26 and 4.00, i have got this errors:

/usr/local/adapco/starcd/3.26/STAR/3.26.000/linux64_2.4-pgf90_5.2-glibc_2.2.5-dso/bin/star: line 4331: unexpected EOF while looking for matching ``' /usr/local/adapco/starcd/3.26/STAR/3.26.000/linux64_2.4-pgf90_5.2-glibc_2.2.5-dso/bin/star: line 4345: syntax error: unexpected end of file

i expend some time and find error in function check_resource(). Now (after correcting this function) solver "star" are work! But i am not Star-programmer!

I guess your account manager did not tell you which operating system are supported or did not send you the installation notes. I think Suse 10.2 is not supported yet.

bash shell is a pretty bad shell in general anyway (half-baked). The advice from system administrator is always to use csh or even better tcsh.

no fedroa is not supported. on the other hand suse 10.2 is really youngwith new library. bash has a lot of unix standard commands missing for example when doing shell scripting. you need to compare the different shells and you will see.

Noar you don't seem to have much idea of what is involved in software development. Are the developers supposed to test on every single distro of linux every second of every day? 10.2 has been around for a couple of months at best and there have been a lot of problems with the new bash shell, indeed I bumped into the problem in 10.1 when it first came out, and hey presto a couple of weeks later a solver patch emerged that fixed the issue. So I would suggest that you get the new patch and it should fix your problem.

I would suggest next time you use your brain (as well as contacting official support) before ranting forth, although maybe you would be better served writing your own full scale code, on various different unix versions, supporting it, maintaining it whilst also constantly developing new features. You clearly don't have much of a clue, as my dad used to say engage brain before putting mouth into gear!

StarCD-programmers support prehistorical Linux distribution?

Note: all work in StarCD v.4.02

The bug was also fixed in 4.02 (as you have noticed) as well as the 3.26 patch I mentioned earlier.... NOAR don't you feel that you owe the developers an appology?

Could you guys please tell me if Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (i586) (Linux 2.4, glibc 2.2.2) 32bit is supported by STAR-CD 3.26.

Regards Usker

This does in fact raise an interesting point, for larger organisations' running large clusters and running applications, the OS cannot be dictated by a single application. Clearly it is unrealistic to expect ISVs' to support the latest and greatest of every OS but where do we draw the line?

NOAR, I had the same problem as you mentioned and I have changed the code as you suggested. But now I have another error message:

***ERROR*** STAR was not initialized properly on HOST localhost.

==> Please check that you have defined STAR correctly in your initialization files.

Do you have any idea what I have to initialize.

Regards Usker

I think you answer on your question on this post : http://www.cfd-online.com/Forum/starcd.cgi?read=11792

If problems in permission of running files, try run star from root-user.

Hi NOAR, My system parameters: OpenSuSe 10.2 x64 and I have StarCD-3.26. As you said i changed this MMEXEC=`$RSH $PNP_MMHOST $STARDIR/etc/starenv -run "$STARINI" / "ls -1 \\\"$PNP_MMEXEC 2>&1 | tail -1 | grep -v "No such file"` --- into : MMEXEC=`$RSH $PNP_MMHOST $STARDIR/etc/starenv -run "$STARINI" / "ls -1 \\\\\`echo \"$PNP_MMEXEC\"\`" 2>&1 | tail -1 | grep -v "No such file"` after that it works fine but, when i run the solver with moving mesh(tutorial 7.1) I got a error, it says "Please check that you have installed the external moving mesh code correctly" please advise!
