Thank you very much!

It worked here on both Gentoo and Pclinuxos.

tom@linux-l8tg:~/OpenFOAM/tom-1.5/run/tutorials/icoFoam/cavity> paraFoam

paraview: symbol lookup error: /home/tom/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linuxGcc/bin/libpqCore.s o: undefined symbol: _ZN14QObjectPrivate15checkWindowRoleEv

tom@linux-l8tg:~/OpenFOAM/tom-1.5/run/tutorials/icoFoam/cavity>

After this I went and recompiled paraFoam (7.2 step). When I ran paraFoam again I got the same message regarding undefined symbol.

I do not have enough capabilities with SUSE to diagnose problem any further.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

i followed your instruction to install paraview, but i installed it for OpenFOAM-1.5-dev

but i got the error message like this below, when i tried to start paraview

simulation15@user-laptop:~$ paraview
paraview: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/paraview/libpqCore.so: undefined symbol: _ZN11QFormLayout16staticMetaObjectE

and this error when tried to run paraFoam :



simulation15@user-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/simulation15-1.5-dev/run/tutorials/icoFoam/cavity$ paraFoam
paraview: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/paraview/libpqCore.so: undefined symbol: _ZN11QFormLayout16staticMetaObjectE



could you please help me to solve this problem?

Okay, allow me put it here, I found paraFoam didn't work on my OpenSUSE-11.0,
qmake --version shows 4.4.3, gcc is 4.4.0,

what have to note is the error:
/usr/lib/libpython2.5.so, needed by blah blah,

and I did:
ln -s /usr/lib/libpython2.6.so.1.0 /usr/lib/libpython2.5.so

and recompile util/postprocessing graphics/PV3FoamReader, then paraFoam works.

Hi everybody,

I got ParaFoam to work on openSUSE 11.0 with Qt 4.4.0.

I am using OpenFOAM-1.5-dev.

I installed cmake 2.4-patch 6.

I compiled paraview the usual way and then the PV3FoamReader the usual way too.

It's ParaView-3.3-cvs.

So far paraFoam looks good, I tried it on the icoFoam tutorial case.


Kind Regards,
Philip

After managing to compile the ParaView I am having trouble with my other linux software.

For example, when trying to run kate I get this symbol lookup error
Code:
sega@deepblue:~$ kate
kate: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libkde3support.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN13QWidgetAction11eventFilterEP7QObjectP6QEvent
Seems to be a problem with this libkde3support?!

After switching back to Qt 4.5.0 (deleting the Qt related entry in bashrc) I was able to suppress the error message and ParaView is still working!

Tom, how did you solve this problem. In the next post I see you say it worked, but I don't see any post that suggested the fix.

I had some problems with symbol lookup errors, too.
Which distribution are you using?

I could fix the problem by deleting the Qt related entries in OpenFOAMs bashrc file on my Kubuntu 9.04 system.

I'm on Ubuntu 9.04. I originally had a working OpenFOAM system that I got by a combination of trying to install myself and the installation script that someone put out. But then I tried to upgrade to 1.5.x and messed everything up. (I should have left Thirdparty alone.)

I've compiled with several versions of QT (The one that 4.5 (I think, its the one that installs with package manager), 4.3.1 and 4.3.5. None of my compilations would run. I am currently trying the binary Thirdparty distribution, but I'm still getting the error about libPWCore.so (again trying different Qts) The strange thing is that library is right in the paraview tree, how can it be messed up?

I'm talking about these entries. Do you put them into OpenFOAM's bashrc?
I had to delete the entry to make it work on my Kubuntu 9.04
