Hi everybody !

I am new on this forum, and as a new comer, I must ask question on compilation troubles and bugs with paraFoam !

I did download everything for the 1.4.1 openFoam version.
I did compile it using the wiki tutorial.

The installation of third party softwares went smoothly. (gcc, java, cmake, paraview...). I also had to use foamFlex instead of my flex version.

My issud concerns paraFoam, but before I had a small trouble, that may be of interest:
During the big ./Allwmake in $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1, I faced this compilation error. This is my first trouble.

I could fix it by doing this:

In the directory $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/postProcessing/graphics/PVF oamReader, I do :

wmake libso vtkFoam

And then ./Allwmake again in the $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1 directory, and everything compiles fine...

Solvers now seem to work fine. For example, the dambreak example runs OK.

My issue concerns paraFoam. The command `paraFoam . damBreak` in the directory ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/tutorials/interFoam gives the following error message

#### begin ####

#### end ####

There seems to be 2 problems in 1 there.

First, the Cannot load module "PVFoamReader" from ".../.../libPVFoamReader.so" thing.
Then, the "There was a VTK Error in file" trouble.

I did include the "wmake libso vtkFoam" trick in the begining, because I don't know what to think about it. It _may_ be source of the VTK issue.

It is interesting to note that the I can visualize my datas with a precompiled version of paraview. Also, my compiled paraview launches and seems to work well.

I found some similar messages in the forum, but I could not go through my answer.

So if anyone has ideas to solve my problems, I would be very glad!

I managed to cope with that by making the symlinks of the includes "a la mano":
writeFunsTemplates.C:30:36: erreur: interpolatePointToCell.H : Aucun fichier ou répertoire de ce type

>> search for this file and you will find it in ...
/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/postProcessing/g raphics/PVFoamReader/vtkFoam

>> let's have a look in the includes stuff :
-I/home/openfoam/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/postProcessing/g raphics/PVFoamReader/vtkFoam/lnInclude

>> ok, so we have to create the lnInclude directory under this path:
cd OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/postProcessing/g raphics/PVFoamReader/vtkFoam
mkdir lnInclude

>> and symlink the file inside:
ln interpolate* lnInclude/

Et voilou !
