Dear All,

The updated Mac version has finally arrived: you can download it from my personal Mac pages

http://homepage.mac.com/h.jasak/ in the OpenFOAM-1.3 directory.

Now that I know what I'm doing, everything apart from FoamX is operational.

Installation instructions:
1) download the disk images
2) mount them (double-click the disk image file). This should produce a /Volumes/darwin and /Volumes/OpenFOAM-1.3 directory
3) create a directory ~/OpenFOAM
4) in the directory, make soft links to the disk images:

cd ~/OpenFOAM
ln -s /Volumes/darwin .
ln -s /Volumes/OpenFOAM-1.3 .

5) set up the environment in your bashrc/cshrc in the usual way:

cd ~
cp -r ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/.OpenFOAM-1.3 ~

Into your .cshrc file add:

source ~/.OpenFOAM-1.3/cshrc

and you're done!

I would appreciate a success/failure report from any Mac lovers.

Enjoy,

Hrv

Hi, I'm new to Mac and OpenFOAM. I did everything correct, but I receiving two erros. (I don't kown if it has anymore errors)

First Error- When I check foamInstallationTest I receive this error:
gcc 3.3
WARNING: Conflicting installations:
foam settings: /bin/gcc
current path : /usr/bin/gcc
CRITICAL ERROR

Second Error - When I tried to run blockMesh on a tutorial I received this error:
dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/hjasak/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/lib/darwinDPOpt/libmeshTools.dylib
Referenced from: /Users/JMB/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/applications/bin/darwinDPOpt/blockMesh
Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

Does OpenFOAM have to be run in X11 or can be run in Terminal?
How can I correct this problems?

Thanks,

Julio Barros

Hi,

You don't need to worry about foamInstallationTest - OS X is a very closely contorlled environment and I get the same.

For me, icoFoam and various other tools run both from the terminal and xterm. However, paraFoam (paraview) needs X and will only run from the xterm.

As for the problem with the libary, it all works here and I am running off a disk image. Please check that you've got DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH set (in OpenFOAM-1.3/.cshrc). By the way, which shell are you running?

Hrv

Hi,

Sorry for the double post, but I forgot to tell about the variable. (I couldn't edit the post... Sorry!!)

There is a DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH, but when I check it (echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH) I got nothing set...

Thanks again,

Looks like I've messed up the setup. In ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/.bashrc
it should say

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH


Try setting in by hand and all will be well. I will re-pack it in the next few days...

Hi, all

First of all, I want to thank Hrv for making OpenFOAM running in MacOSX.

But I'm facing a small problem. I want to compile a new solver. I think I did everything correctly, but the wmake fails with thousand of errors. As I'm new to OpenFOAM I don't know what this error could be.
I did all the steps above to run OpenFOAM and I thought the problem could be the mounted image, so I manage to copy this images to my disk (command: "cp -R")

Is it possible to compile anything in OpenFOAM running MacOsX?

Thanks a lot,

Julio Barros

Hi Julio!

Your last question first: Yes, it is (possible to compile stuff on Mac OS X).

It's very hard to judge what kind of problem you have by the number of compiler errors (but it is greatly appreciated that you don't post all thousand of them here). But if you paste the first few (and the last few lines) here, maybe someone can help you.

About "cp -R to my disk": Could you specify (I don'T fully understand what youz mean with that)? Because I guess you are aware of the TheFileSystemOnMySystemDiskIsNotCaseSensitiveButOp enFoamIs-problem.

Hi, Bernhard.

make: *** [Make/darwinDPOpt/myicoFoam.o] Error 1

I don't know if I mess the files with this command "cp -R ". For what I understood in the "man cp" this -R substitutes the -r. But I know the Mac isn't CaseSentitive.

I think the best way is what should I do to compile stuff on Mac?

Thanks,

Julio Barros

Actually, there is a number of name clashes in the OpenFOAM source files if you use a case-insensitive filing system and this is the problem you are facing. If you have a look at the disk image I provide, you will see it is actually formatted as case-sensitive. This was the easiest way to get OpenFOAM to work and keep it consistent.

What you should do is to use the case-sensitive filing system for your installation and build your stuff into FOAM_USER_APPBIN and FOAM_USER_LIBBIN. This allows you to work with the installation without changing any of the files. I have just tested this on my Mac and all is well.

Good luck,

Hrv

Hi, Hrvoje and All

You mean that I have to reformat my HD to be case-sensitive or I can do something else?

I did what you told: to compile the stuff in FOAM_USER_APPBIN, and I'm getting new errors! :'( (I'm back linking the OpenFOAM image)

Some are of those type:
#################
from myicoFoam.C:33:
/usr/lib/gcc/powerpc-apple-darwin8/4.0.0/include/limits.h:122:61: error: limits.h: No such file or directory
#################

Others are:
######
/usr/include/gcc/darwin/4.0/c++/cstdlib:93: error: '::div_t' has not been declared
#####

Could it still be the CaseSensitiveProblemThing ????

I'm really interesting to run OpenFOAM smoothly in my Mac. So if you all could help me out I'd be very grateful. (I don't want to install a linux in my Mac Mini ;-) )

Thanks very much,

Julio Barros

No, you do not reformat the disk to be case-sensitive. The operating system is likely to get very upset if you do that. Mac has got this utility of creating disk images and this is what I distribute. The mistake you did was to copy the OpenFOAM installation out of the disk image - no need to do that.

What you need to do is mount a disk image the way I've described and then run your stuff in local space. You do not need to format your local space to be case sensitive.

As for the problems you report now, this is to do with the development environment on a Mac. If you haven't done so already, you need to go to the Apple web site, register and download the development environment - I think it's called Xcode (but Bernhard may know better).

Good luck,

Hrv

Hi Julio!

Is the file
/Users/hjasak/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/lib/darwinDPOpt/libtriSurface.dylib
at exactely that location on your hard-drive? I doubt it (if Hrv had direct access to your computer you wouldn't contact him through the message board ;) ) I think it's at /Users/JMB/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/lib/darwinDPOpt/libtriSurface.dylib. I have some idea what could be the problem, but the quickest (and dirtiest) solution is to use a symbolic link ("ln -s /User/JMB /User/hjasak" assuming that Hrv doesn't regulary work on your computer). The other one involves recompiling the OpenFOAM on your Harddisk.

Disclaimer: I havne't tested it (and the problem is that sometimes I'm under the impression that even global warming can be fixed with a well placed symbolic link. Problem is: nobody knows where)

Hi all,

I've been trying very hard to get openfoam running on my macbook. I've downloaded the binaries and followed the instructions but no matter which program I run, I always get errors like this:

chris-harveys-computer:~ charvey$ /Volumes/OpenFOAM-1.3/applications/bin/darwinDPOpt/autoRefineMesh; exit
dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/hjasak/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/lib/darwinDPOpt/dummy/libPstream.dylib
Referenced from: /Volumes/OpenFOAM-1.3/applications/bin/darwinDPOpt/autoRefineMesh
Reason: image not found

For some reason it appears to be trying to access libraries on the "hjasak" username. I've checked all the environment variables and all of them point to the correct locations (as far as I can see). When I open the binaries up in textedit I can see (scattered among all the machine code) paths which have "hjasak" in them. It appears to have been hardcoded in. However when I check the uncompiled source code that came with the download, I can't find "hjasak" in there anywhere. None of the bashrc or cshrc files appear to have any references to this username in them either. I just don't know why I'm getting these problems.

Can anyone shed any light on this please?

I've tried it using both the bash and csh shells btw.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. The prospect of running CFD on my mac is just too fantastic to give up on this.

Thanks very much,
Chris

Alternatively, you can rebuild OpenFOAM yourself from scratch. Just make a complete case-sensitive read-write disk image, move all the stuff from the compressed image into the new one, do wcleanAll and Allwmake and you're in business.

I am pretty certail that all you seed is

setenv DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH $LD_LIBRARY_PATH

That fixed it for me when I built on an external disk. However, if this does not work (and there are indications that people had trouble), just rebuild the lot.

Enjoy,

Hrv
