Hi,

I am new to Linux. I loaded OpenFOAM in Fedora. After the installation I checked the installation with command "foamInstallationTest" and got the following message.

checking basic setup...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OS: Linux version 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Base configuration ok.

The foam installation contains 1 critical error(s).

Review the output for warning messages and consult
the installation guide for trouble shooting.
-----------------------------------------------
->> ( One critical error ocured. I want to know whether the istallation is complete).
------------------------------------------------

Then I typed FoamX and got the following error message:
$ FoamX

/home/prem/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4/bin/runFoamXHB: line 139: FoamXHostBrowser: command not found

There are many postings related to the above mentioed FoamX error and I could not find the soution from the existing discussion. Could anyone point out the problem in my installation?

Hi Prem,

Here are some thoughts,
1. What's your ultimate goal to use OpenFOAM? So, don't be burnt out by the FOAMX, try to use shell command instead, you will get used to it, and it is more powerful and flexible.
2. Your FOAM's setting is not correct, that's mean when you type "which gcc", you will get /usr/lib/ccache/gcc, so try to modify the ~/.bashrc file. (You need to have a little linux knowledge, it's useful.)

Have fun,
Daniel
