Hi everybody,

in my system (SUSE user) works OPenFoam great,
but Im only a user in a network, with a global OpenFoam Version for all User (no permission to the OF/src files to edit) .

Now, I can only use the standart solver and boundarys, and not my own.

my question now, how can I add a local install of OpenFoam, beside the global installation ?

thx for help

If you want to write your own solvers and boundary conditions, you usually just put them together in your own ~/OpenFOAM/USER-VERSION/application/... directory structure and have them compile into

You shouldn't normally need to have a personal installation per se. If you really need to change the standard OpenFOAM files, you are either doing bug fixing or creating a new model/functionality, in which case deriving from an existing model is usually the better solution.
