Hello Everybody,

i just installed OpenFOAM 1.4.1 under Suse Linux 10.3 64 bit running a bash shell. 'foamInstallationTest' produces no errors. Following the installation README worked perfect and also the icofoam tutorial (Blockmesh...) worked well.

However i cannot get FoamX to start:

ralf@Bollerhannes:~> FoamX &
[1] 4642
ralf@Bollerhannes:~> Starting NameServer with inet:Bollerhannes:1234 ...
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib64/libelf.so.0: ELF file data encoding not little-endian

I have to manually kill -9 it as otherwise it won't stop. My libelf-version is:

/usr/lib64/libelf.so.0 -> libelf.so.0.8.9
/usr/lib64/libelf.so.0.8.9

Is it too new/old? Is it the 32 Bit Version (i downloaded the latest 64 Bit version).

Any hint is appreciated. The kindest regards, Ralf

Folks, i have found a later or older version of libelf, compiled it, linked it to libelf.so.0 and guess what...?
Yessss it does start, however i get a new error message, hopefully not linked to my tweaking libelf:

As you may notice, there are some german phrases in between, 'getötet' means 'killed', 'abgebrochen' means 'stopped'.

As i mentioned before, everything else works fine, paraview is great and so on. I think i did not tweak my OS in any way. Has anyone done this with Suse 10.3 64 Bit before? Shall i rather get an older one?

Thanks in advance, regards, Ralf

No response at all and i am a little surprised.

Googling the error message above brought me to a workaround:

export LIBXCB_ALLOW_SLOPPY_LOCK=1

before starting FoamX somehow helped (don't ask why). I copied the line to the FoamX-Script. That should do.

Regards, Ralf
