Actually the command to set the variable VERS worked as it was supposed to. The first thing I checked was to make sure that the variable was assigned correctly. It seemed to work for all but about 4 parts of the download when "update" was run.

Mmm... I understood from your description that the problem was that the words "lsb_release" appeared instead of "precise" during the update...

yes, but not in every case. It seemed that most of the fetch commands worked properly. Only a few had the problem.

I too am having similar issues. I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS running on a 64bit machine (dual boot alongside Windows.) Following the instructions in http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php ends up having issues with the GET UPDATE command. All the lines referring to openfoam begin with Ign (Ignore I presume?) At the end it's trying to get "main Packages" and "-cs Packages" from www.openfoam.org lsb_release/ with Ign at the beginning of each line and finally says Err instead of Ign then "W: Failed to fetch" from the same locations when it tries to get the Packages.gz file (it tried to get it from /-cs/binary-amd64 and also from /main/binary-amd64/.)

Is this something going on at OpenFOAM's end and I should just try again later?

I don't know how to copy/paste from the terminal window, so please excuse the lack of detailed information.

Greetings Chris and welcome to the forum!

You can copy from the from the terminal by pressing the key combination Ctrl+Shift+C
For pasting on the terminal you can use Ctrl+Shift+V
Selection is with the mouse.

As for the commands for installing, try these instead:
Code:
VERS=$(lsb_release -cs)       
sudo sh -c "echo deb http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu $VERS main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list"
Then proceed with the remaining commands. But if still doesn't work, you now know how to copy-paste from the terminal

Best regards,
Bruno

For my problem with ATI radeon X1400 the following magic worked:

Quote:
sudo apt-get remove --purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx*
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx-updates fglrx-amdcccle-updates
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
+ reboot

Now it uses standard Radeon driver with GLX support.

Cheers,
Alex
