Default Fluent on a quad core with debian

Hi!

I've got a new PC (a really nice machine):

Dual Intel® Xeon® 5300 Quad-Core Clovertown), 2x4MB L2 Cache 2.66 GHz, Intel® Xeon® 5100/5000 Dual-Core (Woodcrest), 4MB L2 Cache bis 3.00 GHz / Dual LGA771

2x Intel XEON E5345 2.33GHz FSB1333 - Sockel: 771/ Quad Core / Cache: 2x4MB, 80 watt

24GB PC667/533 FBDIMM ECC

Now I wonder, what is the best system, to rum Fluent on it. Someone said, that Linux Debian would be perfect, but on the fluent website, this is not in the list of the supported platforms (only suse and red hat).

And what's about that new Fluent 12 ??? Does someone has an idea, what system is required here? And when it will be available?

I don't what to do the fluent 6.3 installation on a certain system, and a few weeks later, Fluent 12 does not run on it any more!

Any comment is welcome! Ralf

the installation workes very well. but when I start fluent, following error appears:

/home/rschmidt/Fluent/Fluent.Inc/bin/archive/fluent: line 476: [: =: unary operator expected

Unable to determine machine architecture.

Set the environment variable FLUENT_ARCH and try again.

so what next???

Well,

best system for run Fluent:

CentOS (free alternative to RedHat);

Fedora Core;

Ubuntu (derived from Debian and user friendly);

On this three OS my Fluent 6.3 works with no problem ...

About your Debian experience ... try to add fluent to your path ...

Hi!

thank you for response. Now, i have debian on the system, and I want to try it here, rather installing a new system.

I have added Fluent to the path:

PATH=home/rschmidt/Fluent/Fluent.Inc/bin:$PATH export PATH

into the $HOME/.bashrc

as the Fluent readme told me.

h!

don't ask me how, but now, it seems to work perfect!

There were some setting for the PATH not correct... also, some public library had to be installed....

That all has done a specialist for me... alone, there would be absolute NO chance, to do it...

However.. looking forward to work on that machine!!

Ralf
