Sorry about the missing files in the release pack, I will tweak the pack scripts to sort this out. In the meantime here are the missing files

As an aside: what bugs me abou
 
As an aside: what bugs me about the current build system is that it is quite verbose and thus makes spotting build errors very difficult, especially since the Allwmake scripts simply continue on error, such that detecting build errors becomes nearly impossible.

I propose prefixing all calls in Allwmake scripts which might fail (wmake, make, cmake, mkdir, tar, cp,...) with a function call, e.g. called tryRun which might look like this:

# defined in some common file which gets sourced by
# all Allwmake scripts
function tryRun() {
if [ -n "$WM_STOP_ON_ERROR" ]; then
$@ || exit 1
else
$@
fi
}

# in some Allwmake script
tryRun wmake libso something
tryRun tar xzf something_else.tgz

This way, if the user set WM_STOP_ON_ERROR to anything except the empty string, the Allwmake script will abort on error.

And another thing: the shell scripts that come with OpenFOAM all use the shebang #!/bin/sh, but do not use POSIX sh, but extended (bash) features, such as command substitution with the $(command) form, instead of `command`.
On most Linux systems this works fine, as they alias /bin/sh to /bin/bash, but e.g. Ubuntu as a very widespread distribution does not do so (and with good reason) and uses /bin/dash instead, which does not support these syntax extensions. So why not use #!/bin/bash (or even better: #!/usr/bin/env bash) instead?

"especially since the Allwmake scripts simply continue on error"

This was a request made by users which we put in. I would be happy to return to the previous settings where the build system stops on error.

Our intention is for our scripts to be POSIX compliant and as far as we are aware they are. We have tested them with bash in sh mode and with dash (which the developers claim is POSIX) and all the build scripts run fine. In fact the 32bit binary release of 1.5 was built on an Ubuntu machine. If you have found non-POSIX features in our scripts please let us know and we will remove them.

"This was a request made by us
 
"This was a request made by users which we put in. I would be happy to return to the previous settings where the build system stops on error."

Or let the user choose what to do. I do see the use of "letting it run as far as it possibly can get", especially if you want to do the compilation over night and not be frustrated next morning at it having stopped after just 5 minutes. But then, afterwards, you usually want to be REALLY sure things went smoothly and don't want to dig out possible error messages in tons of output.

About the POSIX thing: I probably have to apologize as I based my claim on my experience with the 1.4.x version where I encountered exactly these problems. While reading through some of the scripts I thought I spotted some of the constructs which caused me some headaches with 1.4.x, but haven't actually tried it on a vanilla Ubuntu machine and now stand corrected. Sorry for the noise...

BTW, I really think OF-1.5 is a big step forward. I especially like that you separated out the third-party stuff in a cleaner way.

I have a question about OpenFoam 1.5. If I install it the OpenFoam 1.4 directory, will it remove files as necessary and replace OpenFoam 1.4 with 1.5 i.e, is OpenFoam 1.5 an upgrade? If not will the presence fof OpenFoam 1.5 in the same dir as 1.4 create problems? Or should I get rid of 1.4 alltogether? I am not too keen on doing that yet, since it took quite an effort to get 1.4 up and running since a number of files were missing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

"gzip: stdin: unexpected end o
 
"gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file"

It probably means that your file download ended before the entire file was downloaded. The solution is to try and download the file again.


Regarding your other query, I don't think OpenFOAM releases are upgrades like some GNU/Linux distributions. So you will need to install OpenFOAM 1.5 afresh. If you want to be *very* safe, you can always create another user in your GNU/Linux system and install OpenFOAM 1.5 for that user. That way, you can preserve 1.4 and also get the chance to fool around with 1.5 until you decide to switch to it permanently.

My experience with OpenFOAM since version 1.2 suggests that you can safely remove the old version and move to the new one; as more often than not, many bugs are fixed in newer versions.

Hi, musaddeque,

I think both OpenFOAM 1.4.1 and 1.5 can exist in the same machine.
Well, I used to have both versions. I believe you can change your ".bashrc" file to determine which version to use. (Remark: I use Suse 10.3, so your setting may be different, but I think it should be similar).

"gzip: stdin: unexpected end o
 
"gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file" means corrupt download. After re-downloading, compare the output of:

md5sum <path/to/downloaded/file.gtgz>

(where you replace the part in between <> with the actual path to the file) with the value give on the download page. If they match, you're sure that the download was successful.

And Ivan is right, they can coexist without any problems, as they use a distinct directory structure. Just do:

cd ~/OpenFOAM
tar xzf <path/do/downloaded/file.gtgz>

and OF-1.5 goes into ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5. You'll have to do this for the source- and binary-pack and then again for the ThirdParty source- and binary packs (unless you intend to build OF yourself).

I don't understand what i have to do with files "files" and "options" of Henry Weller. I have no Make directory in ThirdParty/libccmio-2.3.1. Replacing the two initial files of the Make directory in ccm26ToFoam directory, i have the following error:

Could someone help me?

Did you run AllwmakeLibccmio in the ThirsParty directory? This should have installed the ccmio library (so including the file ccmio.h).

The compilation of then ccm26ToFoam includes that Thirdparty directory (/ric_home/ep4/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/libccmio-2.6.1) to find the ccmio.h.

Could anybody please help me out with this? I do not know where is it trying to copy the libccmio file to.

Hello, I solved the problem.
 
Hello,
I solved the problem. It was something to do with the folder Make in the thirdParty directory. I had to change the case of the letter from m to M. After that I was able to run the AllwmakeLibccmio command from the thirdparty folder and it ran without any errors. But when I run the command Allwmake from the "mesh/conversion/Optional/ccm26ToFoam" folder I get the message

"No rule to make target : libadf/ADF_fortran_2_c.dep', needed by `Make/linux64GccDPOpt/dependencies'. Stop

What could be the problem? Does anybody know what is missing here?

Thank you,

go to ThirdParty/libccmio-2.6.
 
go to ThirdParty/libccmio-2.6.1 and do a

wclean
wmake libso

to do a clean rebuild. This should rebuild the ADF_fortran_2_c.o it is complaining about.

No rule to make
 
Hi Srikara,

Did you finally manage to solve the problem? I am new with OpenFoam and I have the same problem you had some months ago with the compiling.
I try to compile my one solver (in this case a variation of simpleFoam) and the following error shows up after typing wmake:

make: *** No rule to make target ´mysimpleFoam.dep´ needed by 'Make/linux64GccDPOpt/dependencies'. Stop

Thank you in advance,

Xabi

Hi Xabi,
I could not find out what the problem was. But I solved the problem by reinstalling OpenFOAM completely by logging in as root and then installed the library libccmio also as root. It worked perfectly after that.

I am facing the same problem trying to modify the source code of an existing solver. If I find an answer this time I would let you know asap:).
