Hi, I'm new to OpenFOAM, first-timer here. May I know if there is a guide to install OpenFOAM 2.4.0 on my Mac OS X? I'm running on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.

So I follow the instructions on http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...OpenFOAM_2.3.x, but change "2.3.x" to "2.4.x" in the codings?

Quick answer: In theory, yes.
In practice, you might also get an error with db48, which is somewhat explained here: Installing OpenFOAM 2.3.0 on Mac - problems with db48

I don't have Mac, so I'll have to quote Alexey:

So you have several choices:
a) use Google to find a solution (if there is any)
b) post a problem (for example) here; wait for a person, who had the same problem and solved it, to read your message and post his solution
c) (this is classic) reinstall Macports and hope this time everything will be fine
d) try Homebrew
