Dear colleagues,

maybe some of you are interested in another guide as of how-to-install-OF-on-my-Mac.

I managed to compile the current OpenFOAM-1.6-ext on my iMac (Late 2013) running on Mac OS X Mountain Lion with Xcode 5.0, MacPorts 2.2.0, and ParaView 4.0.1.

To spare you the hassle of searching for all the tweaks, patches and workarounds, I've thrown everything into a single pdf (*) that guides you step by step through the installation process.

Although the steps apply to Mountain Lion, I've thrown in some comments to adapt to the current Mavericks release as well. When I tried it with Mavericks, some ports failed to compile (e.g. rpm), so I didn't go any further. You may be luckier though. However, I'll keep you updated as soon as that works, too.

Here's the guide*:
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...enFOAM-1.6-ext

Cheers,
Bernhard

(*) Edit: now integrated into openfoamwiki.net

Greetings Bernhard,

Many thanks for sharing this guide!
Is there any way we can convince you to post this guide at openfoamwiki.net? I suggest that such a page is created at http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...enFOAM-1.6-ext

Or at least which is the license for this PDF file you've shared? In other words, can it be copy-pasted-adjusted in wiki format at openfoamwiki.net under the GFDL license:

Hi Bernhard,

Many many thanks! It's perfect! All I had to do was remove a stray unicode character and add the category: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php?ti...92&oldid=14091

Best regards,
Bruno

Awesome, Bruno

Did some further cosmetics on the page, too.
