tcl8.5-dev tk8.5-dev


2. The previous authors suggested creating some custom scripts like uname, rpm and so on. This is not necessary. Instead, just install the Linux Standard Base package:

sudo apt-get install lsb

3. As someone already pointed out, for Nvidia cards starting from the driver version 260.x the creation of a symbolic link (ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia...) is not necessary as this is done by default. There is also no need to additionally define the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable too.

4. Mount the ANSYS iso image, run the INSTALL script, install the license

5. If you installed ANSYS as root, you need to change ownership of the ANSYS configuration directories and files so that you have write access to them ("user" is the your user name):

sudo chown -R user:user ~/.ansys
sudo chown -R user:user ~/.config/Ansys


6. For convenience, add these lines to your ~./bashrc file:

alias launcher130='/ansys_inc/v130/ansys/bin/launcher130'
alias runwb2='/ansys_inc/v130/Framework/bin/Linux64/runwb2'


6.1 Then run:

source ~/.bashrc

7. Make sure the /etc/hosts file contains the right lines, as suggested by the authors above

That's it!
I followed this guide but when I open a case file or msh file I receive this error for each processor:

setting process affinity: failed opening libc

what does it mean? It's important....how do I fix it?

Thank You!!!!

Dear all, I was facing with the same problem while running cfx5pre:

ERROR
CCL validation failed with message:
Warning: Can't check parameter Message Type (/PHYSICS MESSAGES/PHYSICS MESSAGE:msg0000/Message Type): Can't find rule.
Warning: Can't check parameter Severity (/PHYSICS MESSAGES/PHYSICS MESSAGE:msg0000/Severity): Can't find rule.
Warning: Can't check parameter Message (/PHYSICS MESSAGES/PHYSICS MESSAGE:msg0000/Message): Can't find rule.
Warning: Can't check parameter Suppressed (/PHYSICS MESSAGES/PHYSICS MESSAGE:msg0000/Suppressed): Can't find rule.

and I found a working solution changing the physics preferences:

gedit /home/localuser/.cfx/CFXPreferences.ccl

Automatic Physics Update = On -> Off
Physics Validation Disabled = Off -> On

I don't know if it's a correct way but IT WORKS!!!... Has anyone experienced it? Any comment?

dear francesco,

yes I can confirm this behavior. But it would be nice if we could fix it so that
the physics check is useable. I already talked to the support but they told me
to use a certified linux....

regards,
benjamin

Was that problem already solved? I would be interested how!!

if you use the presented hint:
/.cfx/CFXPreferences.ccl

Automatic Physics Update = On -> Off
Physics Validation Disabled = Off -> On

, then you can use cfx-pre, but it is not possible to save or close it again without:
ERROR CCL database failed with message: getStringValue: value "/COLOUR MAP DEFAULTefault Colour Map/Colour Map Nae" does not exist

I wrote an request to the support, I hope, they answer soon!



my system: openSUSE 11.4, nVidia GF 9500GT

Hallo, I have instaled ansys and I can use it correctly, but when I shut dawn the pc and I restart I need to install newly the INTALL.LM licence manager. If not, I obtain this messege when I try to use launcher130.

ANSYS LICENSE MANAGER ERROR:
Could not connect to any license server.
The server is down or is not responsive.
ANSYSLI_SERVERS: 2325@pedro-VPCF11C5E
FLEXlm Servers: 1055@pedro-VPCF11C5E

How can find a solution?

Thank you so much.

I can confirm that ANSYS 13.0 (at least CFX, Workbench, DM and Meshing) works great on CentOS 5.6. When you run the license manager gui, you have to run it as root, but you have to make sure to run the command: "xhost +" before going into root to make sure your display settings are ok. It's something weird I found when using Red Hat/CentOS that doesn't occur in Ubuntu.

Actually it looks like a bug somewhere in the CCL library: the second last character of each parameter path is lost. I can for instance rename every instance of "Colour Map Name" to "Colour Map Nae" in the files where it appears (.../v130/CFX/etc/{CFXPostRules.ccl, CFXPreRules.ccl, rules.application}), and then I will get past that error only to receive an error about "Legend X Justificatin" (again, second last character lost).

Part of the CCL library in written in perl (.../v130/CFX/lib/ccl), and there is a getStringValue funcgtion in CCL/API.pm, but unfortunately while it is being called (just insert a print _@; in the function body to check), it appears to be a wrapper for the binary getStringValue and is only used for some parameters - none of the problematic ones among them.

Just my findings up to now...

Thanks for the tips!
It works fine in CentOS 6_64bit as well.
Have to install the i686 libraries (glibcc, elfutils, glibeXt) and no more problems

Hi all. Been trying to browse through this thread for tips but there are so many messages for so many distros...

Can anyone tell me what is the status with RHEL 6 (x64) and ANSYS 13 SP2.. What steps must be taken for CFX to work?

License manager & workbench are ok, but when doing CFX solver run there are following errors:

ccl2flow: * command language error *
Message: getChildList: unable to find the requested path
Context: returned by cclApi call

Any ideas? I've installed ANSYS 13, SP2, added paths to env, added all libraries I can think of (libstdc*, openmotif*, glibc*, libXex*)..

Workbench is functional after addressing some missing packages.

From my experience -- only a fedora or CentOS distro will work for 32 bit and a suse or redhat derivative works for 64-bit.

anyone getting the tcp transport error has (what appears to me) what would seem to be a mono package issue on a 32 bit system -- this can be fixed by using a redhat derivative on the 32 bit system (recalling that Ansys only supports RHEL for 32 bit systems, but Suse and RHEL for the 64 bit)

Cheers!

Like mhsr, Charlotte and Elokon, even after successful installation on debian x86_64, I get:

Does anybody have any advice on a workaround or a way to investigate?
Thanks!

I installed Ansys 13 Sp2 on Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit with the Howto of Post 161 but I get the following error message if I start ansys workbench with the above mentione alias "runwb2":

Code:
$ runwb2

I do not what this error message means, especially the
Code:
 
System.InvalidOperationException: UNIX OS version 3 is not recognised.
from the first line.

Have anybody successfully installed Ansys WB 13 on Ubuntu 11.10 and may help me with this problem?

Hi Zyryx,

Could you be more specific. I have the same problem in opensuse 12.1. Fluent and CFD post seem to be working fine but work bench throws this exception saying that unix version 3 is not recognized.

regards,

Thanks!

I installed all mentioned packages and an old 2.6 kernel version of the "Ubuntu 11.10" beta state. Now workbench starts.

The design modeller could also be started, but the graphic window does not work and it freezes, if I start to work.

I did turn of the gnome graphical effects, but this has no influence.

It is possible, that there is still a problem with missing dependecies, perhaps Java Version?

Regards.

Hi Folks

I just installed ANSYS CFX 14 on my CentOS 6.0. I previously installed on dependencies listed in Installation Manual concerning Red Hat 6. NO MORE CCL VALIDATION ERRORS.

I recommend to try that. My computer configuration is as follows:
Notebook Dell Vostro 1310
GeForce 8400 GS (with Nvidia driver 290.10, the latest)
CentOS 6.0 64-bit (with some packages updated due to ANSYS dependencies)

Hope this helps

Hi all,

I installed ANSYS 14.0 on Ubuntu 11.04 and everything works fine, except CFX-Solver in parallel mode. With any ("local") option

PVM Local Parallel
Platform MPI Local Parallel
MPICH Local Parallel

I get this error:

"An error has occurred in cfx5solve:
A ANSYS CFX Partitioner executable is required for this run, but none is
available."


The linux command x86info on terminal print:

...
WARNING: Detected SMP, but unable to access cpuid driver.
Used Uniprocessor CPU routines. Results inaccurate.


The Processor is:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950@3.07GHz 1600,00 MHz

How can I fix this problem?

Just updated to 14....

I keep getting the follwing errors trying to start workbench
QObject: Cannot create children for a parent that is in a different thread
QPixmap: It is not safe to use pixmaps outside the GUI thread
these are not there in Ansys 13 workbench.....

fluent and cfd-post work fine independently

I tried erasing the .ansys and .config/Ansys folders but no help.

Any ideas?
