Probably your installation is not complete!
Did you first install the sources and then the binaries?
If you did it the other way around it might cause you troubles.

Ok, I suspect you run a 32 bit machine, so on short, the installation goes as follows:
0. cd
1. wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/source...3.General.gtgz
2. wget http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/foam/OpenFOAM-1.3.linuxGcc4DPOpt.gt gz
3. wget http://puzzle.dl.sourceforge.net/sou....1.0.linux.tgz
4. wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sou....4.2.linux.tgz
5. wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/source...2_05.linux.tgz
6. mkdir -p ~/OpenFOAM/linux
7. mkdir ~/OpenFOAM/jobControl
8. cd OpenFOAM
9. tar -zxvf ../OpenFOAM-1.3.General.gtgz
10. tar -zxvf ../OpenFOAM-1.3.linuxGcc4DPOpt.gtgz
11. cd linux
12. tar -zxvf ../../gcc-4.1.0.linux.tgz
13. tar -zxvf ../../paraview-2.4.2.linux.tgz
14. tar -zxvf ../../j2sdk1.4.2_05.linux.tgz
15. cd
16. echo ". ~/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/.OpenFOAM-1.3/bashrc" >> .bashrc

That should be all!

This error is simple to solve. Just install whatever package is available for your linux distribution, which contains the libelf.so.0.
For instance, in my case,I have Suse 9.3, and the package containing this library is libelf-0.8.5-35.rpm

Here you can find a package for RedHat 8.0
ftp://194.199.20.114/linux/redhat/8.0/en/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/libelf-0.8.2-2.i386 .rpm

I cant install the rpm package yesterday because i am not administrator of that computer .
just now,after installing the package of libelf.so.0,I meet another error when runing FoamX :
[heliang@console heliang]$ FoamX
Starting NameServer with inet:console:1234 ...
Starting FoamX Host Browser with inet:console:1234 ...
FoamXHostBrowser: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.3.4' not found (required
by FoamXHostBrowser)
runFoamXHB : cleanup
runFoamXHB: Killing name server nsd(pid 32723).

I search it from forum, somebody give advice to recompile the source.
Do anyone have other method to sovle this problem?

You won't like the other method: upgrade your system to something newer, like fedora core 5.

It seems that your FoamXHostBrowser is giving you the error.
Try to see if your compilation produced a proper executable:
ldd $(which FoamXHostBrowser)
It should not give you any "not found" message. If it does, that means you did not recompile everything.

P.S. I still think you should upgrade your system, or you will most likely have problems with paraview

I want to know that it can be installed in the redhat 8, do anyone finish this before?

P.S what is the meaning "upgrade your system", upgrade the core of system, or use other system?

By upgrading your system, I meant to install a newer library glibc. Though, this is not trivial so maybe you will find easier to install a newer successor of RedHat 8: Fedora Core 5 perhaps.

Well, google is your friend!
"He" says this problem is cause on modern distributions by a new security layer called selinux.
Among other solutions, the simplest is to disable this layer by issuing the following command, as root:
/usr/sbin/setenforce 0

That should do the trick!

I hope you will find it usefull.
