http://sourceforge.net/p/openfoam-ex....04_64-bit.txt
But after compiling for 2-3 hour the terminal got stopped at a point which is shown in snapshot.
Please help me to install this package

Hi Sam,

I suggest that you read+study the following pages:
  1. To make sure that you can use either one of the OpenFOAM versions: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...with_the_Shell
  2. Then for installing 1.6-ext, follow the instructions for the Ubuntu version you're using: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...1.6-ext/Ubuntu
  3. Then for foam-extend 3.0: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...end-3.0/Ubuntu
Best regards,
Bruno

Hi Bruno,

I have installed OpenFOAM-2.3.0 in home/user/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0 .
I want to simulate gas turbine with DensityBasedTurbo solvers so I need to install OpenFOAM-1.6-ext. For that if I change the alias as follows
alias of221='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/openfoam230/etc/bashrc' alias of16ext='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc'

Does this works ?
What are the steps i need to perform ?

Regards,
Sangamesh Hosur

Hi Sangamesh Hosur,

I thought that the wiki page on the first link explained everything clearly enough .

Anyway, the steps should be:
  1. Edit the file "~/.bashrc", using your favourite text editor. For example, if using gedit:
    Code:
    gedit ~/.bashrc
  2. Remove any lines that refer to OpenFOAM and add these to the end of the file:
    Code:
    alias of230='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.3.0/etc/bashrc'
    alias of16ext='source $HOME/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/etc/bashrc'
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Restart your machine. (I say this because I'm assuming you don't know how to logout and then how to log back in )
  5. It should now work as intended. In other words, you must always start a new terminal window, whenever you need a different OpenFOAM version. Then run the respective alias command, for the respective OpenFOAM version. For example:
    • If you want to use OpenFOAM 2.3.0, start a new terminal window and run:
      Code:
      of230
    • If you want to use OpenFOAM 1.6-ext, start a new terminal window and run:
      Code:
      of16ext
Best regards,
Bruno

Something very strange happened in your installation. A critical file seems to have been deleted.
To diagnose what happened, let's try searching for it. First run these commands:
Code:
cd $FOAM_SRC
ls -lgn decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/lnInclude/decompositionMethod.*
It should give you something similar to this:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 1000   44 Dec 25 13:23 decompositionMethod.C -> ../decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.C
lrwxrwxrwx  1 1000   44 Dec 25 13:23 decompositionMethod.H -> ../decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.H
The file "decompositionMethod.H" is the one missing, but is shown in the list above in my installation.
Then try this command:
Code:
ls -lgn decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.*
It should give you this:
Code:
-rw-rw-r-- 1 1000 12981 Dec 25 13:10 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.C
-rw-rw-r-- 1 1000 28916 Dec 25 13:23 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.dep
-rw-rw-r-- 1 1000  6456 Dec 25 13:10 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.H
If it doesn't, then the files are missing.

Let me know what you get from each command, because by knowing what you get, I should be able to detail a specific solution.

By the way, you did not skip over step #6 from the instructions, or did you?

Code:
cd $FOAM_SRC
ls -lgn decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/lnInclude/decompositionMethod.*
I got this

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 1623535300 44 Mar  5 15:37 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/lnInclude/decompositionMethod.C -> ../decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.C
lrwxrwxrwx 1 1623535300 44 Mar  5 15:37 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/lnInclude/decompositionMethod.H -> ../decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.H
Then I tried this command:
Code:
ls -lgn decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.*
I found this on my terminal:
Code:
 -rw-rw-r-- 1 1623535300 12981 Oct 16 07:35 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.C
-rw-rw-r-- 1 1623535300 28916 Mar  5 15:37 decompositionMethods/decompositionMethods/decompositionMethod/decompositionMethod.dep

I did not clone it as specified in step#5, Instead i downloaded OpenFOAM-1.6-ext then i tried step #6 I got something like this
Code:
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
How to counter this problem ?

Then that must be the reason for this problem. Please provide the link to the package you've downloaded, so that I can check what differences there are from the git version.

Hi Sangamesh,

Sorry, I've had a few busy days of late and didn't manage to look into this sooner.
I've compared the files from the package you've used and the files from the git clone I'm using. They seem identical.

Try running these commands, with the 1.6-ext shell environment turned on:
Code:
cd $WM_PROJECT_DIR
wclean all src/decompositionMethods
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
./Allwmake > make.log 2>&1
This should ensure that the decomposition libraries are rebuilt properly.

Best regards,
Bruno

Hi,

I am following the procedure to install OpenFOAM-1.6-ext from :
http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_12.04

But when i execute the step 2, i will get the following error

Code:
root@BMH301562:~# apt-get install git flex bison rpm build-essential zlib1g-dev binutils-dev \
> openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev paraview libstdc++5
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package paraview is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'paraview' has no installation candidate
What might be the problem and how to overcome this ?

Regards,
Sangamesh Hosur

I've tested this myself, namely to create an empty file inside the folder "/etc/apt/sources.list.d" and then ran:
Code:
apt-get update
and it did not give me any errors. The file "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/openfoam.list" that you have must have something inside it that is invalid.
Either erase this file or follow step #1 from here: http://www.openfoam.org/download/ubuntu.php

Hi Bruno,

I have installed OpenFOAM-1.6-ext on my personnel laptop with the procedure explained in the link http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kur...OwnLaptop.html

But only i could not compile DensityBasedTurbo solvers. I ran axial case out of these but simulation was not proper. Here with i have attached the log files.

But I am not able to install on my organization's system .
Still struggling

Hi Sangamesh,

Sorry, but apparently the DensityBasedTurbo repository hasn't been updated in over 2 years and seems to be considerably outdated from the latest 1.6-ext version. Or it might be a compiler compatibility problem, since someone managed to build it with an older GCC version, as implied by this bug report: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mantisbt...iew.php?id=205

I won't be able to try to look into this before this weekend, but on Saturday I'll try to look into it.

Best regards,
Bruno


edit: Or you can try and report this at the bug tracker, as explained in the "README" file that is inside the folder "src": http://sourceforge.net/apps/mantisbt..._view_page.php - be sure to detail the OF version and GCC compiler version you're using.


edit 2: As for installing in your organization's machine, what is the latest problem you're having there?

Hi Bruno,

I will be waiting for your reply regarding DensityBasedTurbo compilation.

Mean while I will explain what i did in organization to install OpenFOAM-1.6-ext.

I am following the procedure explained in the link
PHP Code:
http://www.tfd.chalmers.se/~hani/kurser/OS_CFD/OpenFOAMonYourOwnLaptop.html 
When I ran the caommand
Code:
sudo apt-get install git flex bison rpm g++ zlib1g-dev binutils-dev openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev libxext-dev libxt-dev libxrender-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-devlibqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools paraview
I obtained
Code:
sml5kor@BMH301562:~$ sudo apt-get install git flex bison rpm g++ zlib1g-dev binutils-dev openmpi-bin libopenmpi-dev libxext-dev libxt-dev libxrender-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libqt4-dev qt4-dev-tools paraview
[sudo] password for sml5kor: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package paraview is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'paraview' has no installation candidate
Still I proceeded for installation.
Later I downloaded scotch-5.1.10b.tar.gz
ParMGridGen-1.0.tar.gz
ParMetis-3.1.1.tar.gz
metis-5.0pre2.tar.gz
mesquite-2.1.2.tar.gz
libccmio-2.6.1.tar.gz
cmake-2.8.11.tar.gz files from the respective websites and placed at OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6-ext/Thirdparty/rpmBuild/SOURCES directory
Then ran the command
./AllMake.stage1 >& log.AllMake.stage1
I got message as "Package cmake-2.8.11 is already installed" in log file.
Then ran

./AllMake.stage3 >& log.AllMake.stage3 Log file of this is as follows

Later I moved to install OpenFOAM-1.6ext and the log file is attached with this which seems to be similar to the log file attached in discussion #5. So I followed your instructions specified in #6 . Output is shown in snapshot.

I feel its the problem of
scotch-5.1.10b.

Please help me to get rid of this .
I am trying it from past 20 days .
