Hi Jaswi!

Wouldn't http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Main_FAQ be an appropriate place for that kind of stuff? I know that not much has been added there in the last time, but you could change that ...

Dear Bernhard and Niels

The purpose of making such documentation is distribution only but it needs some peer review as it is very basic and mostly consolidates the information taken from the forum.

I just need some time (after 16th July + 1 week) to refine it.

With Best Regards
Jaswi

Hi Jaswi

What is not very clear from my post is that I would like to read the document and give feed-back.

Best regards,

Niels

Hi feng,

the procedure worked on openSUSE 11.0 (gcc 4.2.1 packaged by OpenCFD, flex 2.5.35).

Regards,
A.

Hi Alberto & anyone,

Thanks for reply. I think I've made a progress in solving the problem related to zlib, but I am now still struggling with flex,

Here is what I have in OpenFOAM-1.4.1-dev/wmake/rules/General/flex++


.SUFFIXES: .L

#Ltoo = foamFlex++ -f $$SOURCE ; mv lex.yy.cc $*.C ; $(CC) $(c++FLAGS) -c $*.C -o $@
Ltoo = flex++ -f $$SOURCE ; mv lex.yy.cc $*.C ; $(CC) $(c++FLAGS) -c $*.C -o $@

.L.dep:
$(MAKE_DEP)

Could anyone give me some help?

Kind regards

feng

Hi Feng !

I'm on ubuntu 8.04 and I use Flex 2.5.4 (old flex in the synaptic package manager) and the compilation is ok.

Hi Mathieu !

Thanks for your help!

I tried your method, but it doesn't work, but I find way around it and make it work.

I noticed in my error list that there is something like "c++ linkage" and I get some idea from this post:

http://www.cfd-online.com/OpenFOAM_D...es/1/7503.html

so I replace:

"int yywrap()"
with
"extern "C" int yywrap()"

which is located at $WM_PROJECT_DIR/src/triSurface/triSurface/interfaces/STL/readSTLASCII.L

then most of the libraries in the "src" is compiled, except some libraries related to combustion and something else. as my project is about f-s, I tried icoFsiFoam and the stress solvers, they are all compiled correctly, anyway, OF-1.4.1-dev is working for me.

I think the uncompiled libraries can also be solved with the same method as the compiler also complains about flex-related issues.

kind regards

feng

Hi All

I have just downloaded 1.4.1-dev tonight, and the finiteArea module is missing. Does anyone know if it has been redrawn or anything?

If not, when will it become available again.

Thanks,

Niels

Hi

I am terrible sorry for having posted this ... turns out that I had stepped into the wrong directory and compiled the 'not-dev' version.

Time for bed.

Thanks,

Niels

I had my fluctuation with installation. I spent almost a whole week from 8:00am to 10:00pm and finally I got it right.

Now I have to deal with the solvers. As a beginner I need to search the internet for days for answers. SOmetimes I get it and sometimes I do not. The tutorial document is very brief and spends a large portion to introduce the grid generation. It does not cover how to code a program. It lacks the material to introduce the overall structure of this big code.

For long time users, it may be easier. I have my own in-house code. I know where to change and how to change it. But for my students it takes two years to understand the code.

Lots of users are students and they work on a project for a short time of period. The code will continue to grow, and someday, it will become so hard for a beginner to grasp and add new components (that is the purpose of a research code). They may just switch to Fluent (with a few thousand for 10 licenses, fluent is not that expensive)

I contacted the supporting group. I concern about the total number of hours (50 hours). Well, if I want to implement a new solver, I really do not know how many hours will they spend.

I agree they should get paid for their work. There could be a better way to do that.

Peter
