I installed openFoam 1.4.1 and it works fine in text mode. The problem is with starting FoamX.

Typing FoamX in the command line returns:

Starting NameServer with inet:ifs08:1234 ...
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

As I can see from "top" or "ps -ef" the application starts, but no GUI appears.

I am running RH Enterprise WS 4.5 and I cannot find library libssl.so.0.9.8 on the system. I do have libssl.so.0.9.7a and libssl.so.0.9.7b, but not libssl.so.0.9.8.

Does anyone have an idea how to solve the problem ?

Yes: give up on FoamX and start using OpenFOAM from the command line (not worth the effort).

Alternatively, rebuild OF on your machine and the problem will go away. A third possibility is simply to lie: do a soft link from libssl.so.0.9.7b to libssl.so.0.9.8 and see if it works. You have a fair chance...

Thanks Hrvoje.

I did create a soft link, but it still does not want to pick up the library.

My libssl.so.x.x.x libraries are in /lib. I have a feeling that OF looks for libraries somewhere else.

Andrej,

I am using RHEL 5.0. On the chance that 4.5 files are arranged the same, I can tell you what I had to do to get FoamX running.

1. I made the following symbolic links:

ln -s /lib64/libssl.so.0.9.8b /lib64/libssl.so.0.9.8
ln -s /lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8b /lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8
ln -s /usr/lib64/elfutils/libebl_x86_64-0.125.so /lib64/libelf.so.0

2. I then found out that I needed to install a 32-bit version of libXp.xo.6. I found the package for the file (xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-1.EL.31.i386.rpm) on the Red Hat Nework page. After downloading it, I logged in as root and installed the package.

Since doing all the above, FoamX has worked. I hope this helps you.

Craig

I am running SUSe linux 10.1 and get the following error when trying to start up FoamX:

nsd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I thought the latest version of OpenFOAM was compiled using Suse 10.1. Do I need to create soft links or is any one aware whether the missing lib files are available somewhere?

Suggestions / direction would be greatly appreciated.

From this thread in the post just above yours, the solution is described in detail. Do that and you should be running.

On the other hand I can recommend to drop FoamX and set up everything using your favorite text-editor. See the User-Guide tutorials to get a feel of the structure of the files related to a simulation setup.

Another way is to make a copy of the file libssl.so.0.9.9 and save it as libssl.so.0.9.8
Though softlink would alleviate your problem, this is an alternate method.

I did this in Ubuntu and i guess it will work fairly well for your OS too.

I will also recommend the use OF in text mode as i had spent lot of time in giving the input (very time consuming)
