Hello everybody,

Has anyone out there tried to install OF-2.1.x on a SuSE linux 10.1 machine.
I can see that the system requirements say OpenSuSe 11.3 and 11.4.
But there is a work around, it would be great for the only cluster at my disposal is this one.
Thank you for your help and best regards.

Greetings ebah6,

I haven't tested in openSUSE 10.1, but here is an old blog post of mine that explains how one can install a recent OpenFOAM on an old Linux:
Building OpenFOAM 2.0.1 on old Linux OSes - test case Ubuntu 8.04

Best regards,
Bruno

Thank you Bruno,

I am trying the installation but couldn't find the binutils for OF2.1.x.
For example,
wget "https://raw.github.com/wyldckat/ThirdParty-2.0.x/binutils/makeBinutils" is available but not for ../ThirdParty-2.1.x/..
I wonder whether there is an alternative.
For now I am going ahead and use the 2.0.1 files to see whether they work.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thank you.

Hi ebah6,

Use the ones already listed at

Now let us go to the ThirdParty folder and get a couple of important scripts:
that they should work for 2.1.x as well.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hello Bruno and everybody else,

I think my SuSE version is too old (version 10.1) to support OpenFOAM-2.1.0/x
So I tried to install the missing libraries that are required by OF but it led me to infinite chain library dependencies ( i.e., any library that I want to install need another library that doesn't exist and so on ...)

My current problem is as follows, I need to use a SuSE-10.1 cluster but couldn't install OF on it due to what I mentioned above.
So would it some how possible to generate kind of executables from my desktop machine and run them in the cluster without installing OF on it?
I know this may sound stupid but what stupid is when we are 'desperate'?

I hope that someone can help with this issue or with a work around.

Best regards all.

Hi ebah6,

Well, you can start reading here: Anyone succesful on static executable solver? post #3
There you'll find two possibilities:
  • static building;
  • or manual/selective packaging.
Best regards,
Bruno
