Greetings Oceaney and welcome to the forum!

This has already been fixed in OpenFOAM 1.7.x:
If you still want to use OpenFOAM 1.7.1, you should apply this fix to it:

Dear Bruno,

Thanks for your suggestion, it works when I use 1.7.x, but I meet some other troubles in the next step ./makeParaView of installation.

Error: cannot find qmake either at $QMAKE_PATH or in current $PATH

I thought the qt is not installed, but it says 'qt-4.7.4-7.fc14.x86_64 already installed and latest version' when I do '# yum install qt'. So, what's the problem and how to fix it.

Kind regards~

Hi Oceaney,

This should do the trick:

./makeParaView -qmake $(which qmake-qt4)

Hi Oceaney,

I haven't had time to confirm this, but you probably need the following packages:

qt-devel qt-webkit-devel
I.e. run as root:

yum install qt-devel qt-webkit-devel
Then try makeParaView once again!

Best regards,

Dear Bruno,

It is not the problem of this packages.
I also tried the pre-built ParaView 3.8.0 version, and everything goes well, looks like, but at the end, I got:
# paraFoam
created temporary 'cavity.foam'
paraview-real: cannot connect to X server

So depressed!
I dont know how to do and hope you will help me when you have time.

Best regards!
