I have just installed Brooks Moses' cygwin port of OpenFOAM 1.3 on a WinXP P4 system (excellent work Brooks et al!). All seemed okay - ran the icoFoam tutorial, as per the installation README.

However, I hit trouble when following the first tutorial in the UserGuide, which calls on FoamX - the system complained that it couldn't find JDK. I tried downloading and installing J2SDK1.4.2_11, and set $JAVA_PATH. This then led to the following output on running FoamX:

ps: user -o unknown
ps: user -o unknown
ps: user -o unknown

ps: user -o unknown
Starting NameServer with inet:Dell:1234 ...
/home/Ian/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/bin/runFoamXHB: line 122: nsd: command not found

... and then the system hung. Am I missing something (eg nsd?) in my cygwin installation?

I havn't been reading the READMEs of the Cygwin, but there are rumors that somewhere in there it says that FoamX isn't supported on Cygwin. (Petr refered me to the thread http://www.cfd-online.com/OpenFOAM_D...es/1/2147.html and mumbled "I think Brooks doesn't write these things for his own amusement")

You're absolutely right - it's there in black and white: "These are not quite complete ports; we haven't yet tried to port FoamX or ParaFoam/ParaView". Apologies!

Has anyone resloved the ParaFoam/ParaView issue? FoamX and ParaView 2.6 seem to work fine on my cygwin install. However, the mess in the first tutorial can't be displayed in ParaView. Any suggestions?
