Hi all,

I have already installed OpenFOAM-1.4.1 on my $HOME directory and I'm now playing with a central installation on our cluster.

According to the wiki (http://www.mfix.org/mwiki/index.php/Organise_Your_Work_with_OpenFOAM#Working_Wit h_Central_Installation)
I have made some minor modifications on the WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR like

export WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR=/opt/software/$WM_PROJECT

And I add this line to my $HOME/.bashrc
source /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bashrc

When I login I have the followings messages:

-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.bashrc: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1//apps/ensightFoam/bashrc: No such file or directory
-bash:
/opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1//apps/paraview/bashrc: No such file or directory
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied
-bash: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin/foamCleanPath: Permission denied

So obviously there are some permissions problems.
Don't know why ...

So I change those permissions with:
chmod -R a+r /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/
chmod -R a+x /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/bin

Is it safe to do this this way ?

After I login I still have some error messages:
Executing: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.bashrc
mkdir: cannot chdir to directory `/opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/src/openmpi-1.2.3/platforms/linux64GccDPO pt': Permission denied
mkdir: cannot chdir to directory `/opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/src/openmpi-1.2.3/platforms/linux64GccDPO pt': Permission denied
mkdir: cannot chdir to directory `/opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/lib/linux64GccDPOpt': Permission denied

Executing: /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/.OpenFOAM-1.4.1/apps/paraview/bashrc


And I saw some strange thinks because I do not have applications like icoFoam,gmshToFoam on the command line. But the PATH is correct

A ls -l on /opt/software/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/bin/linux64GccDPOpt/ gives me stange thinks:

total 0
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? adiabaticFlameT
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? ansysToFoam
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? attachMesh
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? autoPatch
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? autoRefineMesh
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? blockMesh
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? boundaryFoam
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? boxTurb

Is there a bug with tar. My system use tar (GNU tar) 1.14

So to conclude what is the best way to make a good clean central installation.

Is there a bug with tar with long filename-path ?

Thank you very much for your help
Have a nice day

Francois

olesen will become famous soon enough
Try chmod -R a+rX /opt/software/OpenFOAM

Using a large 'X' instead of an small 'x' causes the execution bit to set only if any of the user/group/other execution bits are set.

This grants read permissions for everyone and lets change in to directories, but without making every file excutable (like using a small 'x' would do).
