Hallo,

I want to install OpenFoam under Debian Linux. So I have download and unpack the files and add the line

. /home/sheyer/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc

to the file .bashrc.

If I want to test the installation with running ./foamInstallationTest I get the following error messages:

sheyer@wimi001-linux:~/Programme/OpenFoam/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin$ ./foamInstallationTest
Executing ./foamInstallationTest:

Try opening a new terminal window and it should work. Otherwise redo everything and follow this step-by-step guide:

Hallo,

I have tried to use the guide under

http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ba...allation_Steps

but there I don't know how to unpack the files. What are this for file formats? I get there the following error mesage:

sheyer@panter:~/Programme/OpenFOAM$ ls
gcc-4.2.1.linux.tgz OpenFOAM-1.4.1.linuxGccDPOpt.gtgz
j2sdk1.4.2_05.linux.tgz OpenFOAM-1.4.1.linuxGccSPOpt.gtgz
OpenFOAM-1.4.1.General.gtgz paraview-2.4.4.linux.tgz
sheyer@panter:~/Programme/OpenFOAM$ tar -xzf OpenFOAM-1.4.1.General.gtgz

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Fehler beim Beenden, verursacht durch vorhergehende Fehler.


What is meant with:

The installation is made in Cygwin.

I don't understand this message since I am not a unix freak. What is Cygwin?



Thanks

Stefan

Stefan, please use the guide in:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OpenFOAM

If you are confused with file formats, google them. There are plenty oof websites out there that will describe them and how to extract them.

For instance, Cygwin is a linux-emulator for windows. Google it!

The system test has evoked 1 fatal error(s).

The foam installation contains 2 critical error(s).

Review the output for warning messages and consult
the installation guide for trouble shooting.

in my ./bashrc i have type the new line:

. /home/sheyer/Programme/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc


I think that the error could be, that after running the foamTestInstallation-file there stand the line:
Foam_config: /home/sheyer/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc sourced correctly. And this folder doesnot exist. By me the correct path is
/home/sheyer/Programme/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc

Do somebody knows if this is the error and how I can correct it so that the testfile is runnung successful.

Thanks a lot.

Regards Stefan
