1. You are certainly new to the *nix world. I understand that. Nothing wrong, we've all been there.

2. First advice: Stop working as root user. The root user is much more powerful than the standard windows Administrator. So please stop using it. Create a normal user using the appropriate GUI tool.

3. Copying libelf.so.0 to the /root direcotory is not going to help in any way.

4. OpenFOAM will look for libelf.so.0 in the system lib directory (usually /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 depending on the architecture). So if you want to give a quick check, copy the libelf.so.0 file to /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 and see if that helps.
