Dear all,

i tried to install OpenFoam 1.5 today, everything looks fine until the compilation of paraview.

Additional information:
-Ubuntu 8.04
-"qmake --version
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.4 in /usr/lib"
-OpenFoam 1.4.1 worked properly

As I am a more or less beginner in Linux, I used the the "installation guide" on the website and especially the README file.

Typing the commands:
* cd $FOAM_INST_DIR/ThirdParty
* rm -rf ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms
* buildParaView3.3-cvs

the last one produces following error message:

"soeren@soeren-laptop:~/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty$ buildParaView3.3-cvs

"

Seems that the compiler does not work...
I would greatly appreciate any help on how to resolve this problem!

Thanks a lot in advance

olesen will become famous soon enough
The new gcc requires gmp and mpfr to be installed. The details and rationale can be found here: changes.html

They might not be installed by default on slightly older systems.

From synaptic in Ubuntu 8.04 it seems that the packages you need are

libmpfr-dev

libmpfr1|dbl

May be that the second one is enough. Do a search in synaptic with the string mpfr and they will arise.

hi,

I have another problem with ParaView.
In my thirdparty folder there's no platforms directory and also no buildParaview3.3-cvs.

Why is that?

Thanks

Hi,
I have the exactly same problem as Seoren.
However the configuration of my laptop a little different:
Debian
qmake --version
QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.3.1 in /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.3.1/lib

And I got the entirely same error message as Seoren.
what should I do?

Thanks a lot!

Hello !

I compiled Paraview and it works. I have SLED SP1 and installed from scratch the following:

gmp (with ABI=64)
mpfr
gcc-4.3.1 (in the same path as stated in the README)
qt-X11-opensource-src-4.3.5

and then buildParaView3.3-cvs, which worked.

However, with Qt-4.3.1 it compiled as well, but, I had the problem regarding ".OpenFOAM" extension, and hence got to do the FoamToVTK procedure as Alberto suggest in a similar thread.

Hope it helps

best

I am trying to install openfoam-1.5 and I can successfully run the case with bloclkmesh and solver commands (like icoFoam etc)
But paraFoam command is not working well.
I have qt-4.3.5 installed by default in my FEDORA-9. I checked the GMP and MPFR installation as well. The error it is reposting is:-


[343880@w191-210 channel395]$ paraFoam
paraview: error while loading shared libraries: libQtAssistantClient.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

can anybody help?

regards,
Nishant

Hi Nishant

I guess compilation is the only way out as
the README document has explicity mentioned that
the binaries of installation version will work only with Qt-4.3.1 .

Please be kind to study the README and installation document provided . here is the link:

http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/doc/README.html

Please scroll down on this page and it details all the possible solutions.

Hope that might solve your problem.

With Best Regards
Jaswi

Hello,Nishant Singh

I use fedora9,it works for me.For the missing file,libQtAssistantClient.so.4,you need to install the package qt-x11-4.3.5-2.fc9.i386.

Hope it helps

Nishant, I had to copy my Qt libs and .so files over to /usr/libs; than re-ran through the paraview3.3 steps in the install documentation. That seemed to work for me.

If you got as far as you say, then you're probably just missing this last part.

hi jaswi
I go thru the README file but I considered that the Qt version should be in between 4.3 and 4.4. Anyways, the problem at hand is that I have two installations of Qt - 1) qt 3.3 and 2) qt 4.3.5.
Linz, I installed the same package but 4.3.5 but in my case there is dual installation of qt 3.3 and 4.3.5.
Gene, I tried making a symbolic link through ln -s command for the lib folder b/w /usr/local/trolltech/qt-4.3.5/lib and /usr/lib/. but that didnt work. Will it be work, if i simply copy and recompile it? I will try this way.
Thanks all...

Nishant

Hello, Nishant

Since I also use fedora 9,I could confirm that your problem is not related double qt version.For me,I also have two qt versions installed.

[root@phy-208 ~]# rpm -q qt
qt-4.3.5-2.fc9.i386
[root@phy-208 ~]# rpm -q qt3
qt3-3.3.8b-14.fc9.i386

The only answer I know is that you missing file libQtAssistantClient.so.4 is contained in the package qt-x11-4.3.5-2.fc9.i386.

Hi all,

I am a new Linux user and have Ubuntu 8.04 (64 bit) and OpenFOAM 1.5 (64 bit) on my laptop. The following is the error msg:

Building ParaView3.3-cvs
MPI support : OFF
Python support : OFF
MESA support : OFF
Source : /home/then/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs
Target : /home/then/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty/ParaView3.3-cvs/platforms/linux64Gcc
/home/then/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.5/bin/buildParaView3.3-cvs: 64: cmake: not found
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
done

I followed the instructions in this thread and installed 2 libmpfr files, but still have the same error.

Still trying to figure out why... Any comments? Thanks.
