Hi People,

I am a newb to linux/openfoam and hope can get some help here. I just installed puppy 4 as the linux and installed OpenFOAM 1.4.1 according to the online guideline. However, when i typed FoamX, it says error "nsd"command not found with the FoamXHB(?) file at line 130, when i go to open and read the file, it s basically a line started with "nsd" command. is there any suggestion to fix this?

also, i tried to follow the online step by step guide to run the dailyPitz but when it comes to blockMesh.cavity, it says command not found/no such command.

I understand that it might be better to use command rather than FoamX but I would really like to start with FoamX and at least go through the tutorials.

any help/suggestion is welcomed.
cheers

Hi Lawrence, and welcome.
First try to run icoFoam, and type:
icoFoam

If it prints "command not found" than it means you did not configure the environment. Do you have in your ~/.bashrc a line saying:
. ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc

?

Hi Dragos,
thanks for your quick reply. Sorry as i am really a newbie here, do u mean i first go into
# cd ~/OpenFoam/OpenFoam-1.4.1/tutorials
then type
# icoFoam
if so, it says command not found and as you said, i did not configure the environment.( can u provide some help on how to configure then?)

for the second part, do u mean i should just
#~/.bashrc
and see what it says?nothing come out for the above command at the moment

please bear with mi with great patience, truly appreciated.

Lawrence

hi, this is what i did,

# chmod -v 555 foamSystemCheck

then

#["export PATH=$PATH:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/"]

it returned

bash:[export PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr...usr/local/bin:/usr/X11R7/bin:/root/my-applicatio ns/bin:/opt/samba/bin:~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/]: No such file or directory

i suspect the path is wrong? but how should i correct/change it? help pls..

Thanks

Lawrence

Lawrence, could you do pwd in the directory where foamSystemCheck is located? Are you running 32 or 64 bit linux?
