Paraview installation on scientific linux??
I'm not a newbie, but still not too technical! I have never had a problem installing in fedora, but when my laptop died I decided that I could stomach gnome3 nor more, hence SL.
I have a fresh installation of SL6.2, 64 bit fully updated.
Openfoam appears to have installed without a hitch, I pulled the latest release from the git repository yesterday.
When I get to the ./makeParaview command, I get
*** Error: cannot find qmake either at $QMAKE_PATH or in current $PATH
Can't pretend to know what this means! So I tried running ./makeQt and got
Starting build: Qt-4.7.3
./makeQt: line 107: cd: /home/ellie/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.1.x/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3: No such file or directory
I apologise if this is a duplicate post, I spent all afternoon yesterday (& this morning) trawling forums, google searches not much use, especially when I am not entirely sure what I am looking for!
Thanks in advance
Hi you need to install qt4
yum install qt4-devel
Greetings EllieM and welcome to the forum!
This is a bit outdated, but the principle is the same: Building ParaView 3.10.1 with custom Qt 4.6.4
Adapt 4.6.4 to 4.7.3 and 3.10.1 to 3.12.0 and you should be good to go.
Additionally, you might already have a valid Qt installation. Try:
edit: Linnemann, you got 3 minutes ahead of me :D
Hi, thank you both for getting back to me..
linnemann, when I run 'sudo yum install qt4-devel' I get
Package 1:qt-devel-4.6.2-24.el6.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
wyldeckat, 'qmake-qt4 --version' gives
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.6.2 in /usr/lib64
I am a bit lost in the link for the post you sent, sorry - where should I be looking?
In the makeParaview script you need to change the following lines
yum install cmake
I think this should work
Instead of simply running makeParaView, run it like this:
The rest is the same as explained in the official OpenFOAM instructions.
Thank you again for both getting back to me.
I followed both your sets of instructions
makeParaview has been changed to
# Set the path to the Qt-4.5 (or later) qmake if the system Qt is older
# Set the path to cmake
When I run
./makeParaView -qmake `which qmake-qt4` > makePV.log 2>&1
my makePV.log tells me that
CMake Error at VTK/Utilities/vtkhdf5/CMakeLists.txt:1 (cmake_minimum_required):
CMake 2.8 or higher is required. You are running version 2.6.4
There are also a couple of other errors, but they appear to be connected.
I have the most up to date version available on SL, so I enabled the atrpms repo (as suggested here http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/red...linux-6-a.html) and I still cannot get cmake 2.8....
I am now going to walk away from the machine before it ends up in a million pieces!
Download the latest release of cmake
yum install ncurces-devel
go to cmake dir
make && make install
run which cmake
should be in /usr/local/bin and not /usr/bin
Or as an alternative to Linnemann's instructions - from within the ThirdParty folder run these commands:
Thank you both for your help, but I give up!
wyldckat, your method gives me an error with Linking CXX static library libCMakeLib.a
linnemann, your method gives me an error of
The bug is not reproducible, so it is likely a hardware or OS problem.
gmake: *** [cmBootstrapCommands.o] Error 1
Error when bootstrapping CMake:
Problem while running gmake
Again, thank you both so much, I really do appreciate it, but I simply do not have the time at the moment to fix this! :-(
encountered same problem as #7 , cmake version is not matching requried version 2.8
follow the instruction from linnemann
So I download cmake 2.8 , and compile with
# ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
# ./bootstrap; make; make install
after that, still need to modify the link for cmake
# cd /usr/bin
# mv cmake xxxcmake
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/cmake ./
and then , problem solved
