Problems with "wmake"
 
Hi there,

I have problem about "wmake" ,
at folder --> /opt/openfoam211/applications/solvers/incompressible/pisoFoam
I type: wmake
It shows:

/bin/sh: 1: cannot create linux64GccDPOpt/options: Directory nonexistent
make: *** [linux64GccDPOpt/options] Error 2
/opt/openfoam211/wmake/MakefileFiles:40: linux64GccDPOpt/options: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `linux64GccDPOpt/options'. Stop.
wmake error: file 'Make/linux64GccDPOpt/objectFiles' could not be created in /opt/openfoam211/applications/solvers/incompressible/pisoFoam

Dose anyone know what is the problem?
Many thanks!

You're trying to compile as a normal user, but the directory is only writable for super-users. Either compile in your home directory or use sudo.

Hi, I tried the root user, but it failed again. But it works if I compile in my home directory. Many thanks!
