Hi Guys,

I just installed openfoam, but I'm having the following problem when I try to run FoamX, here is the message:

Starting NameServer with inet:flubio04.diam.unige.it:1234 ...
nsd: error while loading shared libraries: libelf.so.O: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory.

I'm running under linux fedora 5

Hope you can help me,

Cheers

I'm running OpenFOAM under FC5, both 32 and 64 bit, and it works fine.

I have tried doing the linking method proposed in that thread

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s libelf.so.1 libelf.so.0

but i get the following error:

Starting NameServer with inet:localhost.localdomain:1234 ...
Starting FoamX Host Browser with inet:localhost.localdomain:1234 ...
FoamXHostBrowser: error while loading shared libraries: /home/Vedran/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/lib/linuxGcc4DPOpt/libFoamX.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
runFoamXHB : cleanup
runFoamXHB: Killing name server nsd(pid 29989).

Can you help me?

Hi;

It works well with me on fedora 5.0 :
as root
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s libelf.so.1 libelf.so.0
Then restart the computer.

hjasak will become famous soon enough
In similar cases on Suse I hadto install tha package that provides libelf. If the problem persists, try rebuilding FoamX:

util
cd preProcessing/FoamX
rmoall
./Allwmake

Well I can't seem to be able to fix this problem.

The error does change though once I enable my ethernet connection..

Before ethernet connection, I get the above mentioned error. But once I connect I get this error:

[Vedran@dhcppc5 ~]$ FoamX
Starting NameServer with inet:dhcppc5:1234 ...
uncaught MICO exception: IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INITIALIZE:1.0 (0, not-completed)
/home/Vedran/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.3/bin/runFoamXHB: line 127: 6802 Aborted nsd -ORBIIOPAddr $myIOP --ior $FOAMX_CONFIG/ns.ref </dev/null

also, the foamInstallationTest starts giving me an error after the connection

Checking networking...

Somehow I am starting to think this maybe somewhat of a networking error. Does anyoen have an idea?

Well umm, I tried everything that you guys suggested and I was unable to solve the problem. However, today, I don't know what happened, but the problem just disappeared. Anyways, whatever happened, I am grateful =).

Thanks everybody!

The reason for this problem maybe is you don't open port. When i close firewall, it works well.
