I'm trying to compile OpenFoam
I'm trying to compile OpenFoam on a SGI Altix (IA64) runing Suse (SLES9) and gcc-g++-3.3.3-43.41 (latest supported version available).
I got an error on ./src/meshTools/lnInclude/topoSet.C when it instantiates a boundBox Object, but I've some difficulties to understand it. I saw that the boundBox constructor requires 2 arguments...but...
Can someone help me ?

Thanks for you help

These are the unmodified OF-so
These are the unmodified OF-sources? My guess (guess! I don't know) is that its a problem with the compiler. 3.3 is fairly ancient. What I would try is download the latest stable gcc-sources, compile it, install it in parallel to the vendor provided gcc (/home/begou/OpenFOAM/gcc-4 for instance) and use that to compile Foam.

A quote from

"I just wanted to write and say it seems all of the compilation warnings/problems were fixed when I installed a local version of gcc-4.1.1. Highly recommend doing this instead of using local compilers."
