Hello,everybody! I'm trying t
I'm trying to install OpenFOAM-1.5 on Suse10.3, 64bit Linux. I'm a obsolutely fresh man about Linux and OpenFOAM, so lots of problems trouble me.

1. Where should I type the "qmake --version" as the README file says? I always get the "command not found", and I'm really puzzled...What's more, does it mean that Suse10.3 have the Qt4.3.1 and I could never worry about the problem above?

2.I came cross the same problem as Soeren met a few days ago.(see more in OpenFOAM Message Board: OpenFOAM: Installation: Installation of OpenFoam 1.5 /Compilation paraview)
Following ur advice, I installed the mpfr with YaST and the install DVD this morning, and fortunately, the problem disappeared.
But another one arises as :

What's the problem essentially about, and what should I do?

Thanks For Any Help! Waiting for ur advice...

ATTENTION: I'm with the Suse1
I'm with the Suse10.3!

I've find the key to this problem with Ubuntu:

"To compile programs you need to install the package build-essential.
You can do this with Synaptic or from a terminal window:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential"

What should I do with Suse?
Also, the "qmake --version" problem ?

Thank u all

Hi Wenzu, First, fire up Ya
Hi Wenzu,

First, fire up Yast (look for it in the menu) and then the 'Software Management' module. You are supposed to use it to install/remove software in your openSUSE system.

'apt' is a command-line package manager normally used in Debian-based systems, such as Ubuntu. An equivalent to 'apt' in openSUSE would be 'zypper'.

To solve your problem, I think you need to install 'libqt4-devel' package, it contains the missing qmake file. When you are at it, make sure 'make' is installed.
