Hi Sangamesh,

OK, check if the file "/home/sml5kor/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/ThirdParty/rpmBuild/SOURCES/scotch-5.1.10b.tar.gz" does really exist in your file system, by running:
Code:
ls -l /home/sml5kor/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/ThirdParty/rpmBuild/SOURCES/scotch-5.1.10b.tar.gz
If it does exist, then run this command:
Code:
tar -tf /home/sml5kor/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/ThirdParty/rpmBuild/SOURCES/scotch-5.1.10b.tar.gz
It should show you the list of files packed inside the tarball. But if it shows an error, then that could be the reason for the problem.

As for the other error during the build of OpenFOAM: indeed, it's very strange that it happens and it does seem to be related with the problem with Scotch.

Next I'm going to look into building the "DensityBasedTurbo" repository.

Best regards,
Bruno

OK, I've finally managed to give a good look into building the DensityBasedTurbo toolkit and I've updated the installation instructions at the wiki: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ex...o#Installation

In your case, since you've already downloaded the source code, use these steps, with the 1.6-ext environment turned on:
Code:
cd $FOAM_RUN/..
cd DensityBasedTurbo/src
cp -r timeStepping/MRF/* $FOAM_SRC/finiteVolume/cfdTools/general/MRF/
wmake libso $FOAM_SRC/finiteVolume
./Allwmake

edit: Instructions for building on foam-extend 3.0 are also available here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ex...oam-extend_3.0

Hi Bruno,

I managed to install
But when I run the case cavity and check for paraFoam then i am getting the following error.

Code:
sml5kor@BMH301562:~/OpenFOAM/sml5kor-1.6-ext/run/cavity$ paraFoam 
created temporary 'cavity.foam'

Hi,
I followed your procedure to compile DensityBasedTurbo and hopefully it compiled well but when I ran the Axial_Rotor_MRF turorial then i am gettint the following error.
Could you please help me to run this case successfully ?

Hi sam.ho,

I thought that the issue with ParaView was already solved, but apparently it's not.
Edit the file "/etc/apt/sources.list" once again and modify it to this:
Code:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main universe
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates main universe
The problem was that you had the order incorrect, namely "universe main", when it must be "main universe".
Then run:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Regarding the tutorial case "Axial_Rotor_MRF":
  • swak4Foam must be installed as well. I don't know which version you have installed, but 0.2.4 worked for me. You can download it from here: https://github.com/Unofficial-Extend...e343589da1.zip
  • edit: To run this tutorial, you must run the script Allrun like this:
    Code:
    ./Allrun
  • After that, everything worked fine.


In addition, if you already have FOAM-Extend 3.0 working as intended, then you can also build the DensityBasedTurbo toolkit in this version, as long as you follow the dedicated instructions for it: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ex...oam-extend_3.0
And for this version, you can use the latest swak4Foam 0.3.0.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno
My source.list contains the following

I obtained following on the terminal.

What is the problem to update this ? Even though everything is fine

And regarding Axial_Rotor_MRF I have run the case successfully. By compiling simpleFunctionObjects from Breeder-1.6
Thank you bruno

Hi all,

When installing foam-extend-3.0 from a binary (foam-extend_3.0-1_amd64.precise.deb, on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 64 bits), it ends up under /opt/foam. However, the instructions for installing from source tell me to install it under /home/OpenFOAM. Is that a problem?
When I run foamInstallationTest, it gives errors, but these might also be caused by something else of course.

Best,
Sita

Sure:

Hi ,

I feel you need to install it home/OpenFOAM ..
Or else you need to change environmental variables. If you change the installation path then you have to change the environmental variables according to it.

Thanks, I'll try installing it from source.

Best,
Sita

27 Mar 2014 update: I installed foam-extend-3.0 from source, works fine up to now (except that I have to choose a reader every time I open paraFoam)

Edit the file "/etc/apt/sources.list" once again and modify it to this:
Code:
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security main universe
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates main universe
The problem was that you had the order incorrect, namely "universe main", when it must be "main universe".
Then run:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
Regarding the tutorial case "Axial_Rotor_MRF":
  • swak4Foam must be installed as well. I don't know which version you have installed, but 0.2.4 worked for me. You can download it from here: https://github.com/Unofficial-Extend...e343589da1.zip
  • edit: To run this tutorial, you must run the script Allrun like this:
    Code:
    ./Allrun
  • After that, everything worked fine.


In addition, if you already have FOAM-Extend 3.0 working as intended, then you can also build the DensityBasedTurbo toolkit in this version, as long as you follow the dedicated instructions for it: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ex...oam-extend_3.0
And for this version, you can use the latest swak4Foam 0.3.0.

Best regards,
Bruno
Hi Bruno,

Paraview issue also got resolved. The problem was the repository. As i cant excess the universal repository in my organization. Hence I used my organization repository to resolve this issue.
I thank you very much for support.

Hi Bruno,

I have installed openFOAM-1.6-ext and truing to convert fluent mesh to OpenFOAM mesh but it gives an error that "command not found"
And the same i checked with OpenFOAM-2.3.0. Here its working absolutely fine.

What could be the reason ?

There are a few possibilities I can think of:
  1. You might have mistyped the command. For example, instead of "fluentMeshToFoam" you might have written "fluentMeshToFOAM".
  2. Something might have not gone very well in the build process of 1.6-ext. With the 1.6-ext shell environment active, run:
    Code:
    cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR
    ./Allwmake > log.make 2>&1
    Then check the contents of the file "log.make". Search for the first occurrence of an error message, as that should tell us what is the reason why you got that error message.

Hi Bruno,

I followed the installation instructions on wikki.gridcore.se, starting from the part "Set environment variables", and also occasionally checked the README that came with foam-extend-3.0. The pc that I installed foam-extend-3.0 on is not allowed on sourceforge (company policy...), so I first downloaded foam-extend-3.0_349d2a5.tar.gz using my private pc, then ran foamSystemCheck, and when everything turned out to be OK, I started the installation. Did I skip something essential?

Best,
Sita

Sorry, I'm completely lost by now. Since you already have a working version of 1.6-ext, have you been able to also get a working version of FOAM-Extend 3.0?

Best regards,
Bruno
