Hi,
What's the status of these bugs/patches with respect to the svn version? Has 1.4.1-dev been updated already or should these files be applied to that as well?

Thanks,
Mike J.

Please try not to mix these 1.4.1 patches with those of the dev version in the svn repository. These are specific to version 1.4.1 released by OpenCFD. I'm not really sure whether using these in the dev version would cause problems. I do hope however that these bug fixes will make their way into 1.4.1-dev and any bugs discovered in 1.4.1-dev will also make their way into versions officially released by OpenCFD.

The point of the SVN repository is that all bug fixes and developments are made available as soon as found. The dev version contains all bug fixes from the forum + a series of other fixes, enhancements and substantial functionality, e.g. automatic mesh motion, topological changes, finite area discretisation, conjugate matrix solvers, improved linear solvers (see my papers) etc etc.

There is also a branch that is the original OF-Versaion only with the patches published on the message board added.

I quote from http://openfoam-extend.wiki.sourceforge.net/Subversion_Guidelines#GuidelinesForU sers:

=======
* "User only wants to patch his OpenCFD distribution of OpenFOAM with bug-fixes"
o One way would be to go to checkout the /branches/OpenCFD-Releases/ subdirectory that corresponds to the installed release. THIS IS NOT RECOMMENDED if you don't intent to contribute patches yourself. The recommended way to use the patches is:
1. install a OpenFOAM-Release version as usual
2. Download a patch-file with the differences and apply it (see below)
3. Recompile the release
o For the steps 2 and 3, a shell-script is provided in every _patch-directory of the repository (for instance http://openfoam-extend.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/openfoam-extend/branches/Open CFD_Release/OpenFOAM-1.4.1_patch/updateFromRepositoryAndCompile.sh for 1.4.1). Just download this script into the topmost directory of your release and run it from there. It will patch the installed release and recompile it. The advantage of this method is that no SVN information is stored on your local disk. This
1. saves disk-space
2. makes it possible to patch an OpenFOAM version that is based on a release but kept under revision-control from a different repository.
=======

I THINK all the patches mentionend above are in there. Currently this branch gets updated as I become aware of Fixes on the board (so I may have missed some). If anyone wants to help maintaining this branch give me a word.

Bernhard

Hi Forum

Wish you all a sucessfull FOAMing in 2008

The list of bugs and the patch for their update is indeed a very good idea. I appreciate the effort.

I just have one small comment to add to the above given list. Please do read the post related to the fvcMeshPhi.C bug. I could not get the error removed with the proposed correction and compiling with the new file gave dimensions mismatch error.

Anybody facing the same problem can be mislead so please take notice of the fact that interfoam with mesh motion is still not completely tested.

Thanks once again for the complete list

Best Regards
Jaswinder
