hi,
When I want to install OpenFOAM-1.7.1 on OpenSUSE it says:
System management is locked by the application with pid 4511 (/usr/sbin/packagekitd).
Close this application before trying again.
What do I do, please?

Greetings to all!

@Mostafa: did you search for this online? The first post I got was this: http://superuser.com/questions/83997...by-packagekitd

Basically all you needed to do was:
Code:

kill 4511
#or if you aren't in root mode
sudo kill 4511

Best regards,
Bruno

when I want to install OpenFOAM-2.1.0 on Ubuntu it says:

mostafa@mostafa-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install build-essential flex bison cmake zlib1g-dev qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev gnuplot libreadline-dev libxt-dev
[sudo] password for mostafa:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
build-essential is already the newest version.
flex is already the newest version.
bison is already the newest version.
Package cmake is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package cmake has no installation candidate


Is it OK!!!!!!!!!

Hi Mostafa,

That's strange... what Ubuntu version do you have installed? Did you do any upgrade? Does your machine have internet connection?

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Wyldckat,
thank you for your reply.

CAELinux 2011
This release is built on an updated Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS 64 bit base with a focus on the upgrade of the CAE softwares and the addition of tutorials & wizards to make your first steps easier.

I think I should use the previous version of OpenFOAM, such as 1.7.0.

Looking at the CAElinux website, CAElinux 2011, comes with OpenFOAM 2.0.1, therefore you should even be able to install 2.0.1 without hassle from the sources if I understand this right.

On the live DVD that you get from CAElinux, Ubuntu 2.0.1 is already installed and when installing the liveDVD onto your hard disk you should have OpenFOAM available.

thank you Roman,

It just has OpenFOAM Terminal !!!! what should I do?

romant May 11, 2012 03:47

OpenFOAM only runs in terminal, for graphical post processing you will have to use paraview, which is called from the terminal in your case directory by running paraFoam. I suggest you go to http://www.openfoam.org/docs/user/ and read the introduction as well as work through the first tutorials. This way you will get used to OpenFOAM, how it works and also learn a little bit about how to use linux.

Dear Roman, thank you so much!!!

I'm a new user of Linux
I doubt that OpenFOAM, itself is really a terminal or not,

again thank you.

Hello everyone,
i'm new in Linux and i'm trying to install OpenFOAM on Ubuntu. I'm following the instructions at this link http://www.openfoam.org/download/source.php , but i can't understand what i have to do at this point:
"Go to the top-level source directory $WM_PROJECT_DIR and execute the top-level build script ./Allwmake." in paragraph Building the Sources.
What am i supposed to do?
Please try to be the more "explainful" as you can!
Thank you

Dear Manfredi,
just go to $WM_PROJECT_DIR and run ./Allwmake as below:
Code:

cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR
./Allwmake

it will make all the make folders in OF.

Here is what i tried to do.... but looks like it did't work:

Code:

manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$ cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR
manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$ ./Allwmake
bash: ./Allwmake: File o directory non esistente
manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$ cd -
/home/manfredi
manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$ cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR
manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$ '/home/manfredi/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/Allwmake'
/home/manfredi/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/Allwmake: 4: /home/manfredi/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/Allwmake: wmakeCheckPwd: not found
Error: Current directory is not $WM_PROJECT_DIR
    The environment variables are inconsistent with the installation.
    Check the OpenFOAM entries in your dot-files and source them.
manfredi@manfredi-MacBookAir:~$

Maybe i missed something in the previews steps?
Is it correct to add line
Code:

                source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.1/etc/bashrc
in $HOME/.bashrc file before it says
Code:

end-of-file
?
Thank you

P.s. "non esistente" means "do not exist"

Dear Manfredi,
I had such problem before, the problem is about environment variables, they aren't fixed correctly.
run 'echo $SHELL' to see whether the bash or ksh is running or tcsh or csh. then you should add the below code before end-of-file of bashrc or cshrc file, for example, in '$HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-x.x.x/etc' directory.

Code:

source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.1.0/etc/bashrc
then according to http://www.openfoam.org/archive/2.1....oad/source.php resume the installing.
