Hello everyone,

I would like to compile OF 1.6.ext on my new Manjaro, which is great.
There seems to be a problem with the rpm packages. From what I know so far it seems that Arch is not compatible with .rpm packages, so ThirdParty won't compile.

As for now I don't know any better, so is it possible to find a list of ThirdParty software so I can install it from supported repositories?

Thanks for reading,
- miro

Greetings Miro,

I find that strange, a Linux Distribution unable to handle RPMs. Either way, I don't have the time to pop one Manjaro installation into a VM

Have a look into the following files:
Code:
etc/prefs.sh-EXAMPLE
ThirdParty/rpmBuild/SPECS
There you'll find most of the 3rd party related settings and third-party packages needed.

By the way, which GCC version do you have installed in Manjaro?

Best regards,
Bruno

Thanks for answering,
well I could be wrong, that's why I'm posting here since I'm kinda new to the whole Linux world. I had no idea it has so much stuff in it...

Anyway, I have gcc 4.8.1-3 and my Allmake.stage3 says:

Thanks again,

edit: I just remembered that it can handle rpm, just not in this way. It needs some app (called rpm extract I think) and it's fairly complicated I would say.

Hello,

It turns out that compiling and installing rpm 5.2.1 from source code is relatively easy on that platform.

As a quick test, after successfully compiling and installing rpm 5.2.1 on Manjaro, I just went through the installation of all the packages from AllMake.stage1, AllMake.stage2 and AllMake.stage3 without any major problems.

So you might want to explore that path if you are comfortable compiling and installing software packages from scratch.

Otherwise, just wait for a few days, I should be able to contribute a compilation recipe for OpenFOAM-1.6-ext on Manjaro under ./doc/buildInstructions.

Martin

Done. The whole compilation went pretty smoothly for a fresh installation of Manjaro.

You will have to refresh your local copy of the repository in order to get the full instructions, plus a couple of modifications for the ThirdParty packages.

The instructions for Manjaro are located here:
http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-ex...jaro_64bit.txt

or here on your local machine:
$WM_PROJECT_DIR/doc/buildInstructions/Arch/Manjaro/Compilation_Manjaro_64bit.txt

Enjoy,

Martin
